Things I Have Learned

That I hate Windows 8.

That you can be off work and still work constantly.

That you can work constantly and still not get most of the things you needed to do done.

That you can't print or save files from the Google app that came with Windows 8.  Including things like...oh...unemployment forms that you just filled out.

That you can make all those work week phone calls you had been putting off because they would cause you to spend a lot of time on personal calls and still not know anything about the things you spent all yesterday afternoon and this morning calling about.

Except that unless you can prove inheritance on grave plots bought long ago you can't do anything with them.  I did find that out.

That everybody and his brother is trying to get to our employee personal pages right now so lotsa luck with that if you are trying to pull unemployment papers together just in case.

That the instructions out at the Comcast web site do not match how the download actually works.  Either that or Windows 8 works differently.

That I hate Windows 8.  Not too fond of certain websites, either.

  1. I've not heard a single good thing about Windows 8 since it was first announced. Meanwhile, sales of Windows 7 are skyrocketing.

    1. I wonder if they'll learn anything from that?

  2. Wish you lived closer to Fort Worth. I work in a small computer repair shop, we can wipe 8 and install 7 if you have a valid license key for 7. We have to go over to a nearby business several times a week to fix their computer, its running 8. We hate that OS with a passion.

    1. Unfortunately, it's what the computer came with. And I find myself resenting the idea of having to buy 7 too much to change it out.

  4. PH, windows 8 can be made to boot directly to the desktop and there are free apps that will give you back the start button and others you are accustomed to with windows xp and win 7.
    Belle hated win 8 also and I knew I would not hear the end of it until I found a solution.
    It's been a while so i don't have direct links for the two mods I made to her win 8 laptop, but if you google the subject you will find you are not alone and many solutions to windows H8.
