Good grief! I know that I am going to sound VERY OLD here… but am I the only one who is getting tired of “improvements”?!?!?
I finally had to chuck my AOL… I remember way back… when I first started using the computer, about 15 years ago>>> I was the last hold-out in my household to join the modern world! Back then, my relationship with my computer seemed a whole lot easier. I could save pictures to put on my emails, I could make folders that kept all of my correspondence, I could get off of the computer without “it” keeping files hidden in my computer which would then mess up my computer… Computer life was sweet! (As my daughter would say… “Sweet” is the new “delicious”— which a lot of us used to use to describe something that was totally super!)
But, some good things actually do come to pass. AOL kept putting out new versions… which they touted as “improved” (or some such adjective.) I would usually try to put off “upgrading” to the new improved system. And, when I finally acquiesced and let my husband upgrade my AOL (since I was the only one in the family who used AOL) I would immediately find fault with the “improvements.” (That’s right… “let my husband” do the work>>> Wasn’t I a good sport!?!)
Well, this last “upgrade” has finally persuaded me that after fifteen years of using AOL, I am ready to “go solo.” Yes, I have finally gotten fed up with all of the improvements… It seemed like this last upgrade meant that my husband had to keep fixing my computer when it “crashed.” And, I have enough computer questions for my husband… questions about how to save pictures of cozy mystery books, covers, how to make a new category on the site, how to “go behind the scenes” of my pages and make changes, how to…. well you get my drift.
So, adieu to AOL… You were “delicious” when I was learning my ins and outs of the computer… but your improvements just aren’t that “sweet” for me!
