Around 10pm I fired up the laptop and had inexplicable trouble getting programs to load. Outlook hung with a warning that a Norton Add-On was misbehaving, did I want to stop it. Yes.
Try again, and again and again. Restart, wait awhile, still nothing’s loading. Tried getting on the internet via Google Chrome (usually reliable) … still nada. And that pesky ‘module #4’ was going all manner of frisky, putting up a valiant fight.
No, I’m not talking about Norton, not with my blood pressure through the roof.
Well, I *could* complain about Microsoft: 30 upgrades over a 3-day period. I’m thinking something ran afoul in that mishmash.
Anhoo, when I finally get Google to settle and load, FB freaks and claims my password is bad (it wasn’t), then directed me to give them a ‘recovery email address’ so I did. I get the perfunctory bot mail that asks if I’m being hacked.
I would know that how at this point?
If I’m not, ignore, but oh yes, we want you to change your password, so click here. Did that. Changed password.
Tried logging on with the NEW password, provided through their protocols.
Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!
TICKING digital clock appears…
23 hours: 58 minutes: xx seconds
And I’m LOCKED OUT?
It’s Sunday. I have football. I have good eats. Nice books to read. Editing to do.
And no Face Book.
Realizing I’m addicted to social networking: not a surprise.
Realizing I’m FREE! today from the burden of social networking? Priceless.
