I edited fourteen pages yesterday, of size 11 Tahoma with narrow margins. It was hard work. I was going to tell you about that, but it seemed pretty obvious, since that’s what I always say. So, I’m going to talk instead about my USB pen.
If you know me, follow me on Twitter, or generally talk to me elsewhere, you know that I break technology. A lot. In fact, if you read this blog you’ll know that – I’m on my sixth web browser, and I managed to break it yesterday. But it’s working again now, I think. This time, the issues really weren’t my fault. We don’t know what’s wrong with it …
My USB thinks it’s a hard drive. I’m not sure why, because we reformatted it several times when we first wiped the company information off it and gave it to me (yes, I use a free USB. It’s called economising). It should probably have worked out pretty quickly that it was just a pen drive, but it doesn’t seem to have caught on.
You’ll see that it appears to be the ONLY hard disk drive in the computer. It’s a school computer. They’re on a network. That makes them do strange things; don’t ask me how it works, for I haven’t a clue.
I tried for quite a while to persuade the USB to behave like any other USB, but it didn’t work. In the end, I got so used to finding it in the Hard Disks section of My Computer that when I use somebody else’s USB it takes me several moments to find it, because I’m looking in the wrong place.
Anyway, I guess it makes it easily recognisable …
So, you got any issues with technology? Wait, no. Stupid question. Doesn’t everyone?
Hey, people! I try and post every Thursday and Sunday, though I usually don’t manage it and write on different days. But you know, if you think a routine is needed to find my posts, you’re wrong. Just subscribe, and you’ll always know!
