After a super annoying week of being sick (still), my desktop's OS HD suffering a fatal hardware failure, a weekend of promised snow that was only rain, and oh whatever else was lousy.
It always amaises me that my old 9-10 year old laptop I got used of ebay still works fine, but modern computer parts seem to be made by poorly paid, drunken monkeys. I swear that "quality control" must be a phrase that doesn't have a direct translation in many languages. I bet it comes across more like "Control the quality to ensure it doesn't get too good".
Things like my release PS1 and PS2 from Japan, made in Japan. My Sharp Twin Fami...also made in Japan. My stereo gear, mostly made in America in the 80s, also surprisingly still works great...No not great, better than new stuff.
I just looked on the bottom of the lappy, yep made in America.
Growing up I never, ever thought I would suddenly pine for American quality standards, but as it gets harder and harder to buy things made and assembled in Western Europe or Japan...I sure start wanting that old passable American quality back.
Huh, I figured I would complain more about my health lol.
Well I guess I better go and catch up on what's been going on for the last 6-7 days. I hope you all have had a better time of it.
