I hate computers - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...

I hate computers
I have techno-hate.

Last night I spent many back breaking hours trying to get Misty's damn computer to boot.  I cannibalised my old machine for a working floppy disk drive (why don't modern computers come with one as standard any more?) and a spare hard drive - but got as far as a no legged sleeping dog.

The error message I get now is a bizarre "Password doesn't match" before the machine reboots itself.  The Microsoft site says I need to reinstall windows... which is fine if I had a windows install disk - but most computers don't come with that either.

The next machine I'm getting is going to have both a floppy drive and proper install disks or I'm not buying it.

My back is now killing me (from being bent over the damn machine all night)

In better news - I'm out for beers tonight.
