Technology sucks...

They say the home PC is one of the most unreliable household appliances around… Right at this moment I tend to agree… I’ve had nothing but trouble with my laptop lately… It’s my workstation… It’s an extension of my camera… It’s where I write… It’s my mind’s hard drive!!!

I must say technology has it’s advantages… It’s never been easier to churn out photographic images than it now is… How easy is it to write and edit word after word??? And it’s so easy to share these precious items with the whole wide world…

But when something goes wrong and threatens your memories, whether images or thoughts then technology suddenly takes on a darker appearance…

“Back your files up”, I’m told… All well and good but when you can’t read your backups doubt begins to set in… Fear takes over… You begin to question your own ability to operate this most hated of man made contraptions…

‘Did I really burn those files?’ ‘Will I ever be able to recover the last ten years of my life records?’

I hope my files are still legible when the dusty megapixels settle… And yes, I backed them all up so I can only pray these backups are safe and well…

Only when all the Trojan Horses are burnt to the ground and the evil Spyware is banished from cyberspace will I rest easy… :)

Trev…

    Great title and piece…I’ve always said “the more they (computers) can do, the less that actually gets done”
