Why wont things just work
This past month my card reader hasn't been working, the computer told me it wasn't working therefor I know.

So I went shopping and bought a new card reader and managed to blog some photos and catch up on my postings.

A friend rang today and asked me to take a photo of my new doonah cover and send it to her so she could see it. Taking the photo was easy.

Unfortunately thats where easy ended. The computer told me the card reader wasn't working when I tried to download the photos. Knowing the computer was right last time it didn't ring true in this instance as I was using the new, u beaut card reader, couldn't possibly be broken it was new.

I unplugged cords, card, cords again, card again, and so on, and eventually, in not a very polite way told the ==== computer it was wrong, that didn't help. In an attempt to retain some sanity I unplugged the new card reader and plugged in the old one. Futile you may think seeing it was broken and remember the computer told me it was broken, well guess what? The rotten thing worked and photo (yes, all that for 1 photo) was loaded into my folder. Promptly sent to my friend and I'm still stunned, disbelieving, and the proud owner of two card readers, one of which doesn't work, not sure which one but one of them is BROKEN. The computer said.
