If I Lose My Mind Now, How Will You Remember Me?

Thu, 2007-10-25 23:27

My online experience is starting to be filled with too many uncertainties and inconsistencies. That is the sort of thing I might expect from interpersonal relationships, but computers are supposed to behave in a predictable manner, right? Lately getting a computer to behave like I would expect has made my alternate experiences with personalities, politics and egos seem like a sort of escape.

The uncertainties I refer to may actually have a bit of the human element added in. Mostly I am thinking something like: If I send this email, will anybody ever read it? It all depends on what the person who makes the decisions for that particular email account has decided to allow. I can increase my chances by doing a few things, and occasionally a hint will be thrown my way, but largely it is only hit or miss. Uncertainties.

Inconsistencies are anybody's guess. At the moment I am trying to predict the cost of sending a package through the U.S.Mail, and let me tell ya they are not helping. Sometimes I get a highball figure, sometimes it is even doubled, and other times I get a bargain indeed. I could do as well using a random number generator. I can't really say how I will deal with that.

On a side note, I am listening to the Goo Goo Dolls doing a cover of an old Supertramp standard. You kids don't know what you are missing.
