I love technology because it makes life fun (gaming consoles & tablets), it makes life easier (internet shopping) and is usually fairly fast in working. I know almost everyone one of you have experienced a technology fail which is what this post is about.
I use Hotmail for some of my email addresses - I have several for different purposes. I usually don't look at my hotmail email within a browser, my laptop opens all my emails in one place where it's easy to switch the accounts without reloading a variety of screens. Occasionally it plays up, and today I discover it had done that without me realising. For the past few weeks I thought it was odd that I hadn't had many emails on the account I use mostly for book reviews - I kept looking, but there were only a handful of new ones.

Today my laptop decided to let me view all the emails that I'd 'missed' because it threw an unnecessary tantrum: which lead to some emails from early February to be refound and hastily replied to. I wasn't the happiest with it but there was nothing I could do but thank God none of the emails were super urgent. I thankfully didn't miss out on being able to have two fun books for review which I was a bit worried about as they look such fun reads.
This has happened a few times in the past, it's annoying, and hopefully I'll remember to check in on the browser version from time to time (I probably will forget to do this). Computers can have a mind of their own! Sometimes they throw a hissy fit for no apparent reason, often when we have little time to deal with difficult machines, making us spend many minutes coaxing them to work, then work perfectly the next time we use them. I wouldn't ever want to be without a computer and the internet as it's a gateway to engaging with so many people that it's mindblowing. I don't have millions of blog viewers, yet each and everyone one of you is important and use technology to read every single post I write.
It's time for lunch so I can let my laptop have a rest while I rest up with anime! Then it's book reading time - I'm reading Ruin by Samantha Towle for a review - the picture isn't going up as it's not entirely appropriate for the blog, but it's a great romance and I guessed a plot element before it happened (I like it when that happens). Whatever you're doing today I hope you have a great Monday!
