My Love Hate Relationship with Technology

I have been addicted to technology and computers for most of my life. There are many times however where I sometimes wish I had never seen a computer. Inevitably when I go to work with computers or other electronic equipment everything that can go wrong does go wrong and I feel like tossing the entire thing out the nearest window.

This morning after having a breakfast of yummy low carb waffles and sugar free syrup (yum!). I decided to set up our old DVR in the computer room. We recently purchased a Tivo powered Humax DVD Recorder which replaced our DVR. I had cables going everywhere. Curses flying about those blasted coaxial cable connectors (whoever designed those things should be shot). After a half hour of sweating, grunting and sweating I finally got it all hooked back up and tested out. Perfect!

So why do I hate technology? I sat down at my computer, plugged in my IPAQ 5400 into its USB cradle and the blasted thing refuses to charge! I mean come on. A half hour battling wiring and cable connections only to have my day ruined by my IPAQ’s power connector being defective now. Thats just not fair. 🙁

I am, at heart, a software developer though I am currently managing a small Information Technology department for a mid sized company located in my hometown of Jacksonville, FL. When I am not playing with the latest smart-phone or trying to become inspired to write code I read almost anything I can get my hands on from Pulp Era adventures to biographies of world leaders and everything in between.
