Technical Problems Are No Fun

This is more a little rant about problems I had yesterday than what’s going on today, but I don’t know if anything has really been resolved, especially with my biggest issue: My keyboard keeps randomly freezing. The problem doesn’t seem to be tied to any specific program I’m running, and the more I research it, the more it seems to be an issue with Leopard, which I installed last week. I’m hoping for a fix soon because it’s really quite a pain to have the whole keyboard freeze up and not know when it’ll return. At least the touch pad still works when the keyboard is out.

I was also having some issues with Google Reader yesterday. I was trying to clean up some feeds I don’t need anymore, but it kept giving me errors midway through the cleanup process. I was so annoyed, I even downloaded a different feed reader, Sage, but found it lacked some of the GR functions I really like. So today it was back to GR and thankfully my cleanup worked. Back to business as usual, though even with my big cleanup I still have 1000+ unread items. Thank goodness for the “mark all as read” button.

And on top of all this, I also had some Twitter issues. I made a few posts that just never showed up. My internet was working just fine, so I don’t know what the problem was. Seems to be fine today, though.

    Hi Francine –

    Is Mercury in retrograde or something? I’ve been having tech problems this week too. Congrats on your ex-pat status. I hear my ex-pat friends in Russia live on Facebook. So, couldn’t remember if you were there too. Stay in touch.

    Diane

    For the keyboard issue, which is still happening intermittently, I’m emailing Apple: http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html/

    Other people on the forum I linked to say they’re emailing as well.
