Dreadful Blathering Idiot

This blog, pictures, and all my other writing is coming to a screeching halt as of today. That is IF I can get online and if I can get this posted.  


If you see me drooling, bald, eyes glazed over and stark raving mad, you will know it's ME. The DBI, the dreadful blathering idiot by dear miss mermaid

If you see me drooling, bald, eyes glazed over and stark raving mad, you will know it's ME. The DBI, the dreadful blathering idiot. 

You can blame Windows 7 for reducing me to tearing my hair out, screaming obscenities and completely losing my mind.

"YOU NEED PERMISSION TO PERFORM THIS ACTION."

My old  laptop that was running Windows XP just as smoothly as can be, just inexplicably died one morning.  I was a very happy camper. Then poof, can't get it started, can't get it fixed. I so want it running again, life was GOOD. My backups were a tad old (I was traveling and uploading all my pics too!) and the old XP is holding a few weeks of pictures, personal messes and volumes of writing hostage.

Usually I am pretty diligent to backup by copy and pasting to my external hard drive. But I wasn't feeling well, I was trying to travel up to my workamping site, the poop tank fell off, the gas tank tried to blow up and well there were more things to do than time in the day and I foolishly let the backups take a back seat. Shame on me.

"YOU NEED PERMISSION TO PERFORM THIS ACTION."

Then a super wonderful angel brought me a Windows 7 laptop to use. I am oh so  grateful, because I was tackling a huge project, namely sorting out my pictures and files for the numerous books and articles I am working on now that I am feeling so much better. Still I am miffed about the weeks of traveling pictures and work I am missing.

And it's ALL my fault too.

I figured I am not senile yet, I just ACT like I am apparently.

I just foolishly thought  I can force myself to learn Windows 7.  Don't want to, but I think I can.

"YOU NEED PERMISSION TO PERFORM THIS ACTION."

I seem to be in a holding pattern health wise, not any worse, and maybe much better. Yippie doodle do!  Life is good! I am in a big dang hurry to get loads of things done while I have this miraculous energy!

But...

"YOU NEED PERMISSION TO PERFORM THIS ACTION."

I am now drooling, eyes glazed over, hair severely thinned and still Windows 7 is TAUNTING ME like a mean nasty playground bully that just wants to take my happiness and stomp all over it until it and I are completely obliterated once and for all.

"YOU NEED PERMISSION TO PERFORM THIS ACTION."

I am the only one using this computer and the only one trying to access my external and internal hard drives. I have gone online and read numerous articles on how to fix it and tried to follow everything they tell me, and  STILL I am such an idiot, such a fool, I cannot seem to do whatever it is that Windows 7 mysteriously wants me to do to gain full ownership over all my hard drives both inside and outside the laptop.

"YOU NEED PERMISSION TO PERFORM THIS ACTION."

Windows 7 is nothing but a great big bully beating me up, knocking me out, rattling my brain, ruining my day and making my life pure torture.

All my files are stuck on an external hard drive and Windows 7 just won't let me LIVE IN PEACE and do my thing.

"YOU NEED PERMISSION TO PERFORM THIS ACTION."

So that's it!  Goodbye cruel computer world!  Goodbye pictures, goodbye writing, goodbye  technology.

  3. It's called "User Account Control", and the purpose was to try to keep evildoers from being able to do bad things on your computer remotely. But it drives users like you batshit crazy.

    Here's a simple explanation of how to shut it off, and go back to where you were with XP. Let me know if you have any problems.
