|This image goes perfectly with the post today HA!|
Let's go back to Saturday when I decided to finally stop being so lazy and go exchange my Rogers remote for a new one as my current one had been acting really slow the past 4-5 months. Since I rent my cable box, this was easy-peasy. I was on my way and was happy as a clam as I was walking home feeling accomplished with my new snazzy remote ha!
I'm not going to drag this story out. I promise.
I get home and go to set it up and go to find the code that goes with my TV. Slight issue. There is no Daytek code. I had NO idea Daytek doesn't exist anymore? My TV is seriously only 4-5 years old. I call Rogers, then have me search through like 2000 other codes to see if something would work with no luck. I didn't understand why my old remote was working an hour earlier (but was just slow) and now this wasn't working at all.
Now, I am not THAT lazy and could make do without a remote but the problem was that my TV wasn't working at all now. No volume, no channel changes. Nothing. Awesome sauce.
I go back to Rogers and ask them to give me my old remote back. Heck, I'd rather have a semi working tv/remote than a completely non working TV. They refuse to give it to me claiming "they have had many other remotes returned and they don't know which one is mine." Dude, I was gone about 1 hour. There is no way they had hundreds of other remotes in that time. I finally talk to the Manager and he gives it back to me after I put on my mean face.
I get home thinking that my journey is over. Negative. Wouldn't work. I spent about 3 hours searching online how the heck to fix this issue. Finally fixed it.
I know you're all wondering what I did and I couldn't tell you. HA! I did about 20 different things in those 3 hours so I don't know what the magic formula was. I can tell you to NEVER switch your remote if you "code" doesn't exist anymore. Just don't do it, friends.
My technology story doesn't stop there. Sunday night my computer randomly gave me the blue screen of death and wouldn't turn back on. Do you remember that blue screen from university/college? It was the WORST screen ever and usually meant you lost all your work. Haha! Such horrible memories.
I decided to let it be for the night and try again in the morning. No luck. It is working now but oh man, she's barelyyyyyy running. The kicker of all this? My 1 year warranty on my computer ended 5 DAYS AGO. Life is funny.
Dear technology, I really dislike you.
The end :)
ps. if you don't hear from me for a few days, just know that my computer and I aren't getting along.
