I got the trifecta of tech crises--first, my satellite crapped out. For some inexplicable reason, I could only get a few channels when I turned the TV on that morning--and not channels I really wanted to watch at that time. It's suffered epic fail before--in fact, we just had it serviced last week--but never anything this weird. It's usually all or nothing. If the weather is bad, expect nothing. We get billed for a full month but usually get about half. I found myself wishing we hadn't paid the bill the day before....
Then, my Android phone decided to be contrary...again. Immediately upon being turned on, it had to reboot. It didn't deliver my e-mail. Text messaging was maddeningly slow. It took five attempts (yep FIVE) to check my voicemail because I couldn't get the keypad to come up so I could enter my passcode. (Needless to say, I don't always check voicemail. If I recognize the number, I just call the person back. If I don't recognize the number, well.... That's how the call ended up in voicemail to start with. After you get stuck paying for a lot of calls from wrong numbers, you wise up (at least I did) and let calls from unrecognized numbers go to voice to prevent wasting your minutes.
More often than not, there will be no message left anyway. I changed my number a few days ago after getting calls every hour from someone in another state who never left a message. Go figure. You'd think after hearing my outgoing message the first time, they would have realized they had the wrong number and stop calling!
And...disasters really do come in triplicate, so my netbook had to have problems, too. One of my e-mail accounts alerted me to a Trojan virus. Do they call them Trojans because when they get into your computer, you get screwed? I wonder. I did manage to get rid of that, but not before a long period of sheer, pull-my-hair-out frustration.
At least I didn't have to reset all of my passwords. I have enough trouble with that on a good day.
