I hate computers. No, let me rephrase that: I hate when computers don't listen to me. I especially hate when for the past 3 days, Meditech has been kicking me out of reports no less than 50 times. Now I can't even get into Meditech as it merely says the session has timed out then closes the program again. Lucky me. Yesterday I was so fed up at 9:45 I was ready to just leave. I had moved to three different computers with no luck on it clearing up. Apparently, the whole office has been suffering with this but I seem to be the one getting the real brunt of it. The other girls crash once or twice in a shift, and so far I've crashed twice in under an hour and now can't even get back in.

And it's not like there's anything else for me to do. Even if I wanted to do some copy/pasting from the outsourced files, I can't because I need Meditech to enter the reports into. So I get to sit here, wasting time, blogging about how utterly pissed off with the computer I am. I suppose there are worse things, like the computer not working at all! Oh god, I hope I didn't just jinx myself.

You know what's funny though? My coworker retired on Friday and it was the same coworker who has always had problems with Meditech crashing on her. I wonder if her leaving has transferred this "curse" to me. And if so, why me and not the other coworker who's been here longer? Of course, calling the SD (Service Desk) does little good because when I ask if something's wrong with the server, the nimrod on the end of the phone goes "Nope, that's just typical Meditech". Well no it aint bucko! It never crashes this often in one shift. But anyways, I'm ranting.

I just want to take a .22 and blow holes in the damn computer but, aside from Meditech not working, the rest of the computer is and I can't justify killing something that is at no fault.

Or can I?
