And there was rejoicing in Egypt (or rather in Normandy)

Why do we do it?  Build our lives around fallible technology?
Two miserable days of worry, two tense days of struggle.
Deus ex machina was determined to thwart me at every turn.
Hours of Skypery with my descendants,
during which buttons  previously unknown were explored,
producing zilch
Son-in-law’s advice to reinstall Google Chrome
took about three minutes to follow, with spectacular success.
All my settings and favourites appeared like magic.
We’re back in business.

  2. I have a sometimes adversarial relationship with technology, too. A blessing and a curse. And thanks for pointing out my typo.

    Sometimes things like that turn out so simply. Glad you found your answer.

  4. Oh good!! SO glad you’re back on track…it’s unsettling, as writers especially, to have our computers out of sorts! Happy day! 🙂
