A Day with The Jonssons

One day on the gamezone..

“Arrrgh! I did it again. I’m playing so bad with this team. They shoot when they shouldn’t be shooting.”

“Which team are you with? ”

“Oh for heaven’s sake! No wonder I’m playing so bad. I’m playing against the computer.”

This thing about computers and passwords is annoying me!  Why do they always prompt for updates, upgrades and all these techy prompts?

It’s to secure your account from unauthorized use and hackers.

From whom?  Who would want to bother with an old woman’s cooking recipe anyways?  It’s not a secret like Tutankhamen’s mummy recipe.

Even that is not a secret nowadays.

Grandma Glasses : “Oops! I accidentally deleted files on my phone.” (sigh)

I.T. Consultant : Sign up for an upgrade, get  1TB DropBox to use for backup.

Grandma Glasses : “But I don’t want an upgrade.”

I.T. Consultant : “ Enjoy the 1TB backup space. I’m paying the monthly fee.” (sigh)

WordPressed

I was working two hours on my new blog. I am almost done with content, layout and links when I noticed the edit button on my page. I worked around toolbars and still cannot get the edit button off my main blog page.
“Honey? How do I remove the edit button?” I asked my techy savvy husband. Being the math wizard in the family, I knew he can fix it for me. My husband came to check what I was doing. “That’s easy. Here let me help you.”
And after a few clicks on my keyboard he said casually, “I can even change the whole page,” my husband added.

With wide eyes, I gawked at the most complicated muddle of alphanumerics strings I have seen in my entire life. “What the .. ?!” Talk about wordpressed! Oh well, that’s why they put CLICK Support button on the dashboard.
