Technology Blips

Everywhere I seem to turn, there are blips in technology that suddenly arise. Like the window air conditioning unit which suddenly is making clicking noises every once in awhile. It goes for hours, then suddenly starts clicking with no rhyme nor reason to it.

My phone suddenly stopped working today. No internet. No ability to make a call. Nothing. Dead in the water even though the screen was still lit and I could see the apps. I was in a panic for about 10 minutes. Then it picked up again with full power, internet etc. Strange.

Additionally I have a Mac and now I can’t type a long post. You’re all probably grateful (LOL) but there’s a dark film across the screen when I try to type longer than a few paragraphs. I reached out to WP, but they told me that they don’t see it. I sent a screenshot and the experts think I have to change from Safari to Chrome. I don’t want to do that so I guess I’ll just hope that this works itself out too.

Does anyone else have this issue?

Lastly, I tried to comment on a few posts today but I kept getting an error message so if you get nothing from me or duplicate comments, that’s why…

I know it’s Mercury Retrograde which always messes with my energy and glitches computer/phone stuff so I’m not that worried. But still….It’s really annoying. Don’t you think?

    It is SO annoying when technology goes wonky or doesn’t do what it is supposed to! It is doubly annoying when it fixes itself right as you are trying to show someone what it is doing. 😉 I hope the WordPress site starts playing nice with you! 🙂

      Thanks Beth! I hope you don’t have any issues with it! LOL I’m giggling because it often happens that it fixes itself just as I have an expert trying to help me who doesn’t believe what I’ve been saying has been happening. 🙂

    I seem to have the same ability to mess with electronics.
    I went through three work laptops during lockdown!
    The laptop I started with must have had 100K airmiles on it and had been dropped on more than one (several) airport concrete floor. It was also missing all those little doors that cover the slots for memory cards and wifi cards etc. It it were a car you’d call it a beater. And yet it continued to work for more than a year.
    Some apps I use are so messed up I had to do a screen share to convince my tech guy that I wasn’t crazy.
    I think my body has reverse polarity or something!

      I’m sorry you’re experiencing this, but on the other hand, I feel a camaraderie with you. I definitely have the ability to mess with electronics and it’s annoying me lately. I hope it stops soon as it’s increasing…

    I got an error message yesterday when I tried to comment on a post but the blogger said there’s problems. I can’t type a post if I use Bing as my browser, and if I get it from Google I don’t see the Title space…

    Change. I have hung onto safari, and my kids make fun of me.
    At work I was pushed to using edge and it’s way better.
    Mercury must be in retrograde.
