I really hate computers

2009-06-24 18:43:41.074501+00 by Nancy 6 comments

really. I hate 'em.

We just had our work computers serviced. Evidently we hadn't had any virus protection since 2007 or something.

Anyway, the geek took it upon himself (not Mike) to upgrade Thunderbird, our email program to Now my signatures are gone. I found an add-on "signature switch 1.6.4" that will allow me to have multiple signatures but it is not compatible with the version of Thunderbird I have.

I think I should be able to deduct his hourly rate for every hour I have to spend putting things back the way I had them before he took the computers away. I don't know if he reads flutterby or not. I'm frustrated at the moment and really don't care.

Anyway, if anyone has an add-on that will let Thunderbird give you a choice of which signature to use (by right clicking in the body of the email; at least that's how it worked before), I would really appreciate the link.

I'm with you. Of course I'm spending most of today waiting on computers to do their thing. And then, after 20 minutes of processing, screwing up their thing. Sigh.

The geek came back and fixed some stuff and things are MUCH better. He couldn't get the error message I was getting...you know, the car never makes that funny sound when you want it to.

I still would love the signature add on thingie though - one that will work with the new version of T-bird.....

If you don't hate computers, you probably don't make your living with them.

I really hate them too these days... unfortunately I have made my living from them for over 20 years

Thank you, Gert, thank you! I just set up my signatures and Quicktext is perfect. I hate my computer a little bit less today...
