  • Thanks for NOTHING Verizon.

    Over a year ago, it was announced that my phone, the Motorola Droid MAXX, was going to get the Lollipop system upgrade.  I have waited impatiently since then.  Lo and behold, tonight my phone popped up with a big system update, so I went online to see if this might finally be it!

    NO.  According to the internet, they announced back in flipping February that they will NOT be pushing Lollipop out to my phone.  After you know, they had said they were going to a damned year ago.

    Instead they’re offering a measly $30 off on a new goddamned phone model.

    Seriously, how hard is it to update the bloody software on these smartphones??? I’m sick of this crap.


  • Taxes are a Work of Pure Evil

    -OR-
    Seth’s Continuing Misadventures with Health Insurance


    Now I don’t want to get off on a rant here, but I got my tax paperwork back this week and I just have to share my experience with everyone.

    I owe the Federal goverment over $400.  Not because of my taxes.  Because of my health insurance.  Yes, thats right, because I have health insurance.  When you first sign up for it, you have to estimate what you’re going to make in the next calendar year – this is how the estimate how much “assistance” you qualify for.  WELL, whatever you do, don’t underestimate.  I calculated wrong, and ended up making more money than I had estimated.  This means that in the end, I didn’t qualify for as much assistance as they gave me, so I need to pay it BACK.

    I’m just sick of everything to do with health insurance at this point 🙁 I feel like I’m being punished for doing well at my job by the government.

    But that’s just my opinion, I could be wrong.

     


  • #@$%(@#$%*@(#$%*

    I'm at the end of my rope here.  I've spent the last two days trying to reload Windows on my flipping MacBook Pro.  Why, you ask?  Because I realized the last time I reloaded it I only put on 32-bit, as 64-bit requires a modified disc and I couldn't find it at the time.  I have 6 GB RAM, but 32 only sees 3 of it, and I just can't have it that way.

    MY LAPTOP REFUSES TO BOOT from any damn external media source right now.  I'm 95% sure the internal DVD Burner is shot, It just spits discs back out at me instead of trying to boot from them.  I have also tried 2 external disc drives, to no avail.  I'm running out of options.  I even tried taking the modified install iso and transferring it to a usb thumb drive, and I get errors when trying to boot from it.

    This doesn't compute 🙁 I've done this before!!  I had 64-bit Windows on here before I upgraded my HD!  This just isn't fair… I don't for the life of me understand what I'm doing wrong 🙁

    I'm about to throw the whole goddamn mess in the ocean, and find a new damned career. 

    I'm sick and tired of having computers that are 7 goddamn years old!!!!


  • SIGH

    I've dropped my phone several dozen times, and never had a problem.  Today it fell less than a foot in Jess' driveway, and I now have a full diagonal crack from side to side, almost down the entire damn thing.  I CAN'T WIN!!!


  • Air Conditioner Wars

    An update from the battlefront, from Commander Sethen:

    This morning I ran my air conditioner for maybe about 30 minutes before work.  It was off all night.  I got the call at 8:12ish saying it was dripping.  I saw outside, there really was a large puddle in front of their door.  I shut it off and went to work.

    Upon arriving home from work at 5pm, I have had the air conditioner running on high.  It was 91 degrees when it started, and nearly 3 hours later, I still haven't got below 77.  But thats not even the interesting part.  I went outside and looked. There isn't ONE single SIGN of any water dripping, collecting, or evening BEING there.  I'm completely baffled.  I'm starting to feel framed here…
