My favorite saying in this new computer world is “I love computers….when they work”. But when they don’t it can make you pull your hair out one strand at a time. This is what I have been dealing with for two days.
I blog on my big computer most of the time. I use a program called Open Live Writer. Yesterday the program decided it was tired of opening and wouldn’t come up so I could blog. So I spent three hours trying to figure out why. I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it but it wouldn’t reinstall at all. I couldn’t figure out why.
Then I decided to use a different program called Windows Live Writer. I couldn’t get that to work at all and spent another two or three hours today trying to research and trying all kinds of ways to make it work. Only to find out that Windows no longer supports Live Writer as of December. so that was out.
Then I tried to install Open Live Writer again and it wouldn’t work. I walked away for a while wanting to go bang my head against the wall. I was about to restart my computer when I saw a little message in the corner that said Open Live Writer was installed. And lo and behold! It was. And now it works …again.
I am no computer guru by any means and I was so grateful that it worked itself out somehow..I have no idea how. So I am back in the blogging business!!!
