Here is why I suck:

I can not figure out my Nano. Earlier today, I had the podcast listing under genres (listened to an awesome interview with Geoff Johns. Life was good!). Now, that's vanished, which means the most recent 'Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me!' will not be available for my listening pleasure on the morrow. grawr. Even worse, the DW audio play I tried to upload is not showing up anywhere. Seriously? All I want to do is cry and make someone else fix it. Neither crying nor magical fix is really an option at this point, so all I'm left with is NO NPR podcast - no podcast of any sort, come to that - and certainly no Paul McGann telling me a story of the 1930s. I hate technology. I hate that I have no intuitive knowledge of said technology. I hate being so unbelievably lame.


ETA: I've tried. I really have. Just spent another ten minutes sorting through things that led to absolutely nothing. Apparently, I'm just fracking stupid. Any kind word, any attempt to convince me otherwise, will set me off into tears.
I feel: pissed offpissed off

>I can not figure out my Nano.

...my first thought was, 'but it's only June!'

Seriously, I hate technology too; ironically enough, it sometimes appears to be operating outside the parameters of logic. If you're still having difficulties, supertailz used to work for Apple and could probably point you in the right direction.

Kelly - you apparently have uber more ipod knowledge than I. My 60 gig Ipod is currently being used as a paperweight and the only things recorded on the sucker are about 5 albums -- 3 being the first 3 CP ones (haven't wanted to fight with the entire process in over a year). I may just delude myself into thinking I am somewhat computer/techo literate, however, I am finding the learning curve in general for this thing just too much for my addled brain :).

Ah!!! You're such a nerd, I love you! I have a billion NPR podcasts, too.

Yeah, so no advice (because I'm technologically incompetent), I just wanted to squee over our separated at birth-ness.

1 - I also wondered why you were worrying about Nano in June.
2 - If I had a dollar for every one of the 'looks' James gives me when I can't make a piece of tech do what I want, I'd never worry about social security.

lols...don't you know of the osmosis effect? by virtue of being married to a techie you're supposed to absorb the knowledge in your sleep.

HA! Of course, that would be the same osmosis that should allow the techie to understand that wax paper melts, you don't give a permanent marker to a two-year-old and no, there is no laundry fairy.

Um, I'm sorry, totally unrelated to your entry, but...

YOUR ICON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cutest damn thing ever.

*ahem* Sorry. I have no idea how to make any kind of technology work, so I'm totally mystified and completely unhelpful.

I want a mini-Dalek.

(Yes, I'm very, very, very short on sleep.)
