    Default Technology sucks.

    AngerwankSo, on Tuesday, I downloaded some video editing software, because I needed to make a short introductory video for my school to show the kids (I don't get into China until after term ends). This goes well. I record a video, not the highest quality, but decent. I get some pictures, I make some short clips to put into the main bulk to liven it up a bit. Bellissimo. It all works grand. This takes me up to this morning.

    I check the video, as I want to look over it again before cutting it up and sending it. Oh. What's this? No sound? Somehow - presumably arsehole demon magic - the sound has just been straight up removed. All of it. From my computer. I can't find the audio anywhere. I still have the original files, but I'd have to re-edit them all to make them pretty and fun and wonderful, which takes me smurfing hours because I've never done anything like this before and I'm still trout at it.

    So, I've had to make a troutey boring video - kind of defeating the purpose, since it was for people who don't understand the language anyway - but, smurfing BUT, it's now about 9PM over where the school is, so presumably the students have all gone home any-ing-way.


    The main body of your posts should be telling me I'm wonderful and charming and that it's not my fault. The lesser part is to tell me about times when technology has conspired against you and completely ruined your life, because Bill Gates is a or something.

    Quin, you are wonderful and charming, and that is not your fault at all.

    I guess the most recent time for me when Technology was a smurf, was this week when I was trying to print out my assignment for hand-in, and it wasn't happening anywhere... so I checked my printer balance and I had no credits - which means someone hacked them. Because before the semester break I had like 6 of credit, and I didn't print a thing over Christmas. Stupid smurfing printers and students being able to hack them! >

    Actually, it was my fault. You know that whole haunting thing...

    My PS3 remote was not cooperating with me last night, even after violence and threats to destroy it.

    My camera's battery life goes wild. Sometimes, it's a full 3 bar, then it turns itself off and starts back up again with a 1 bar. Then it somehow goes back to 3...

    Irritating. That and I can never make the image look "non-awful".

    My phone's mapping location has been bitching out on me for like a month.

    My phone refuses to charge unless the cable is connected at exactly the right angle. A millimetres movement anywhere in the cable will cause it to stop charging.

    I've already destroyed about three cables in my rage. :/

    It's...It's not your fault, Quin. None of this is your fault. It's okay. It'll be okay.

    Arthur, sorry to say this but it's all your fault because you're a terrible terrible arsehole and like to finger pineapple rings.

    When I was in college it seemed like every smurfing computer I touched database software on broke, I was literally trying to build my project for class and nothing worked and the software died at every minor macro code I entered. I eventually found out it was to do with the partition my sector of the college drive was stored on, my project however as a result had to be rushed with only 2 weeks to prepare it, pretty much as you'd expect it wasn't a great project as a direct result of this.

    I know right

    All I need is that, plus Paradox games on Linux (happening soon!), plus OpenMW, and I will be a very, very happy robot.

    The only game you need on Linux is Mahjong.
