My Laptop Crapped Out – Charles Snyder Raw #76. So this past week I have been recording “Raw” videos every day. But the problem was that I was unable to do any video editing, much less publish any articles. Since last Monday, I have been working on fixing that issue – thanks for nothing Microsuxx – but now I am back.
Thanks for nothing!
Anyway, I recorded this extra episode yesterday in order to explain what’s been going on. The rest of the videos I’ve recorded will be also published once I get them edited, rendered and uploaded too. So here is my brief background story to the next several articles and videos.
It’s dead Jim!
First, forgive the Star Trek reference, but I just had to slip that in there. But just like the no-named, red-shirt wonders from that 1960s TV series, my laptop was just as dead. Thanks entirely to Microsoft and their latest brain-dead updates that stopped me dead in my tracks!
Secondly, when I called their “customer service” number to resolve the issue, let’s just say it was a waste of time. Since the conversation basically went from “how can I help” to “buy Windows 10.” No research, no digging into the issue, just “you can fix it with buying a newer operating system.”
Last bu not least, the guy’s accent was horrible, I could barely understand him. I seriously doubt that “Uncle” Billy and his company hire locally in the U.S., so that’s strike three. Forcing people to upgrade, a complete lack of customer support and shipping jobs overseas.
If only we could roll back the hands of time to when computers (reliably) ran on BASIC and DOS… *SIGH* Those were the days!
