fyi: you are about to read a untechnical rant by a non savvy computer user who wants to use every curse word while breaking stuff (don't say you weren't warned):
I'm getting ready to take a baseball bat to either this computer or go down to adobe systems and get to the root of the problem.
my computer has "had a problem and restarted" no less than 50 times in the last 24 hours! usually during a post, making a slide show, or leaving a comment. you know, things that have to be RE DONE because now they are lost. i have commented on many of your blogs, comments you will never read my witticism that i have painstakingly left you. I'm so sorry, blame stupid adobe!!!
it always says it's adobe flash's fault. i even un-installed it. no change. restart. restart. restart.
is it possible to go crazy due to Internet connection.... or lack there of????
even Dave's computer is doing this! I'm gonna scream!
really? is it just me????
