Flaming Computers!

Flaming computers!

I logged on as normal

As I do every morning,

Into the sites I use

And logged onto MPS,

No problems.

Started looking at poems,

Then came out to go to another site.

Came back to MPS

But could not log in,

It wanted me to rejoin.

I went onto MPS

Using a different way in,

I used Edge instead of Chrome

And all was well.

Having worked in computing

For many years I have seen these problems

And it is during those times

You realise that it is the software.

And you get to know the difference

Between software and hardware,

Software is silent,

When you throw your computer,

Throw it at the wall!

  • Comment from author about the poem: When I was working in computing, I have seen this happen. One of my colleagues got so frustrated with his computer that he threw it against the wall.

    Sometimes the 'Log in' button does not appear. Doh! Sometimes it can depend on which search engine I use to find MPS. I find that Bing is not that good. Ahh, did only the 'Register' button appear on screen (or whatever it's called')?

    • Goldfinch60

      Yes only the register button appeared when i used Chrome but it all worked when I used Edge.


      • orchidee

        Ahh, I had similar thing happen. Arrgh! But we both got back in to MPS.

        I can assure you, you aint alone sir 🙂

        • Goldfinch60

          Yes I am aware of that Neville.

          Indeed! And the latest ones seem to have a mind of their own. But with personal freedoms dwindling the world over it seems appropriate that the means with which this can be effectively policed and polished is already in our hands! But that's just a rant. Hope you are doing well! Let the music play.

                This way, sympathy vote from me:
                Refs below – We’ve been there before
                Let’s form a union and see
                If naming names: MPS and more
                Will resolve this crap we should abhor.

                While you are here, I still haven't got my head around Edge yet.....

                • Goldfinch60

                  Edge is a bit different but it seems to work OK.

                  I met the same glitch yesterday with all its fears worries and deep feelings of loss. Later on the glitch was gone.

                    Yes they do come and go d a.
