Friday Fun with Technology


I'm taking a step into the 21st century this morning and trying to figure out how to get my CDs onto the iPod that my SO bought for me months ago and I've yet to use.
As Grouch Marx would say, "Why a 4-year-old child could understand this! Quick, run out and get me a 4-year-old child."

In honor of the technically challenged, this week's Friday Fun video is the oldie but goodie entitled "Medieval Help Desk."
The invention of the printing press spurred the creation of one the world's oldest professions: the IT guy. Techno geeks everywhere rejoiced.

The funniest part of this video is at the end when our techno-phobe is handed the "manual" - The medieval equivalent of computer manufacturers who include all of their "How To Operate This Computer" instructions on a CD-ROM.

...so, while I await the arrival of the 4-year-old child.....Enjoy!

I have an iPod that sits unused in the desk. Fran has one that she uses every day, she's lost w/o it! Seriously, if you need help and can't find a 4 year old, holler. She can walk you through whatever you need with it.

Thanks sassy, my SO already came to my rescue. She's the techno-geek in our relationship - she has 2 iPods, a Mac desktop, a gaggle of laptops, and a pile of PDAs. If it has buttons and gigobites she has it.

Okay, glad you got it set. We're both techno geeks in this house, but each with our own special geeky fields. :)
