Family Tech Support

A 6-post collection

Thursday, Tech Support Speed Run!

I have PLNs to sort out MeMum's trouble with GoogDrive.

Which means that I do my stream, do the publish, and then haul arse to the other side of the big smoke to see what the fuck is up with GoogDrive on Mum's ancient lappy.

Since it's also raining, I will be taking the ultimate care on the roads. There's a lot of idiots out there still driving like it's dry. And also driving like everyone else out there offends them personally.

But it will be worth it to have that nonsense sorted.

Let's get rattling. Streaming at the top of the hour.

Tuesday, Tech Support and Patreon

Today, I shall be helping MeMum smooth out some of her life's little problems. Fingers crossed it won't take too long, but there's always something. So I have Mayhem on call for the afternoon. Hopefully.

I might have to rack off at midday just to be certain someone's at home if he doesn't answer his electronica.

Therefore, Patreon content will be delayed, and I will aim to get five more chapters summarised at some point this afternoon. Anything else is pure gravy.

Thursday, Plague Day 24, Tech Support

Finally and at last, I am venturing out to the other side of Brisbane to help MeMum navigate the terrifying labyrinths of internet-based support systems.

I'll begin with the essential navigation skills and branch out from there.

And assist in setting up anything that needeth setting up, and so on. Fun times. I will need my chug jug for sure.

The puffer continues to work and the shaking seems to be less now that I'm off the Twitchy Pills. It's still there,

Saturday, Day 1, Tech Support Shenanigans

Plague news: No new cases! There's five total active cases, and all of them are in hospital. Australia's at 92% first vax, 86% fully vaxxed. Queensland's second-last in getting the jabs at 85.8% first vax, 75% fully vaxxed.

Beloved has an eye appointment today, so I'm on my only for fixing the heck out of whatever's gone wrong on MeMum's compy today. Fun.

If I write anything at all besides my Instant today, I count it as a miracle. My left

Firkin Telstra...

I swear to the Powers That Be [pick your favourite] that tech support would be so much easier with people who understood what the fuck was going on.

I tried to get help from the alleged pros at Telstra. Several times. Concerning both getting MeMum's new compy online and accessing her Bigpond/email account.

I actually got assistance from Beloved about the former.

And as for the latter...

Cue the Benny Hill music.

Five calls. Two texts. One attempt by MeMum to
