3 Reasons I hate computers

One, they are frustrating. Nothing else in life frustrates me the way computers do.

Two, both my Win 10 and my husband’s Win 7 move the curser when I’m not looking, mainly when I stop typing to look at my notes.

Three, they seem to have minds of their own, which don’t match what I want.

On the other hand, they are useful. I would never go back to a typewriter. I like being able to keep track of what’s going on in my family. I like to be able to make payments on line and check my bank balance every day. I like being able to follow my sports teams and check the market ad before going to the store. So I guess I’ll keep mine.

I’ve been doing some research on time for my novel. That’s frustrating online because no matter what you put in, you don’t get the answers you want. So I use my library and my own books. Time is curious and slippery. Some say there is no such thing as time, it’s just a construct created by humans to keep track of things. A person on a spaceship going near the speed of light ages a lot slower than people on Earth. Many stories show a spaceman returning to find his family, children and even grandchildren already gone, having lived full lives.
