So, how frustrating is it when stuff that’s supposed to work wonderfully in this new gee-whiz techno-wizard world just doesn’t?
I had another post in this space earlier, but I had to take it down because it involved a link to another blog and I could NOT make the link work using Blogger’s mobile app. I tried a bunch of times and kept ending up with a broken link. Then I tried fixing it in Blogger’s web version (still on my phone), but that didn’t work either, so I’ll use that one another time.
This all comes on the heels of some enormously frustrating time I’ve spent lately with Windows Movie Maker, trying to make a book trailer for PRINCESSES. All I’m doing is literally stitching a bunch of brief movie clips together just to convey a bit of what I hope the book feels like, but this makes the program choke constantly. Again, something that should be pretty easy turns out to be a headache.
So again, how do you react when even your relatively modest expectations for your technology end up going awry?
