It all started with Twitter. I have had a Twitter account I guess for a couple of years now. In that time I have tweeted twice, have 4 followers, and I am supposedly following two others. Obviously I have not gotten into the Tweeting thing. Either that, or my existence on this planet is much sadder than even I thought it was. So this morning I decided I would take one more hesitant step into the 21st century and figure out how Twitter works.
Simply put, I failed. Whether it is a mental block or that I am just the dumass I have always suspected I am, whatever it is about Twitter, it just does not compute like most of the buttons on the cable remote don't compute.
Interlude- Now that one thumb is pounded numb, let's take that hammer and pound the other thumb numb also. Looking like another Homer Simpson kinda day........................
Completely frustrated and pissed off by 7:00 AM, I chose to not just prolong my agony but somehow I managed to intensify it. I decided to upload my image into two different sites so that instead of some cute little graphic next to my comment, a picture of me pops up. Avatars are their name, and fucking with my head is their game.
Seems these sites have very specific rules regarding how big an image can be before it will accept them. I knew that going in, but no matter how small I made an image, the red line of rejection popped up, "Your image must not exceed 6 KB..................
Or as I interpreted it, "Hey Dumass, this is the sixth time you have tried to cram ten gallons of shit into a five gallon bucket. What about the first five rejections did you not understand?"
So instead of my traditional trip down memory lane on this New Year's Eve, I offer only a traditional replay of my war with the present. It is an ongoing battle that each year finds me losing more ground.
So I guess my message for the new year would be:
Try not to lose too much ground this next year, but don't agonize too much of you do. The ground you will lose is probably not worth the effort to hold onto it.
HAPPY NEW YEAR FOLKS !!!
