Sick of computers!

I have had enough of these things, it seems to me one step forwards and two steps backwards every time. No matter what you do nothing ever works properly, spend more time trying to sort out what is wrong than using the thing (I have 3 of the things)
I am going to sit downstairs in future and watch soaps on the TV with my wife, I`ll be bored to tears and fall asleep but at least I`ll be able to sleep without waking up all night wondering if the TV will work the next time I switch it on.

... until the TV breaks - which they do ;o)

  Ray5776 21:59 20 Feb 2006

They do but maybe once in a few years not every sodding day like PC`s.

I know exactly how you feel...:-)

You'll be back - and somewhat sooner than you think...

Why don`t you tell us the problem(s)?

Why don`t you tell us the problem(s)? but bear in mind there is a 800 word limit to each post

"THE PROBLEM" since new year I have had the following 2 failed IDE cables (on one the connector fell off the other fault unknown but would not work on any machine) One failed floppy drive (not the end of the world but aggro if intermitent) 2 failed 120g hard drives within 2 weeks of each other, both just out of warranty of course. Another failed 20g HD but it was getting old. 256 memory card failed. Had to replace PSU in one machine.
Maybe I am a Jonah with tech stuff.


Sorry forgot the cd rom broke as well

"...and watch soaps on the TV with my wife".

Are both you and your wife going to be comfortable sitting on top of the television? ;-)

  Ray5776 22:41 20 Feb 2006

I find it more comfortable than jumping off of the wardrobe these days, must be getting old

Do you have a rod on your roof collecting electricity from the clouds?

  Ray5776 22:46 20 Feb 2006

Hertz Van Rental,
No I don`t at the moment, can you reccomend one
