It makes my mood swing more than PMS x 1000.
I hate it when Streamyx is down or slow, which in my case, seems to be forfuckingever.
I hate it when I need broadband to do research and it isn't up, refer to above.
I hate it when my computer lags.
I hate it when my printer jams on me for no reason, which happened today.
I hate it when my splitter seems to be rosak, which happened today.
I hate it how irrational and annoyed everyone seems to generally get whenever internet access is down. Case and point, Starbucks' wi-fi is down due to some server maintenance up at Time Zone. Result: hundreds of disgruntled, let down, customers walking huffily out of the store with a certain sense of depravation in their bloodshot eyes.
At this point in time, the end of the world is probably NO INTERNET.
Its fucking scary lah what technology, or the lack thereof, or even the malfunctioning thereof, can do to people, corporations even NATIONS. Remember the Millennium Bug? Sent the world into panic, while batteries and torchlights laughed all the way to the bank. (Not literal lah)
The term "double edge sword" doesn't ring truer to me than when it comes to technology. I think the reason why I get so upset when it isn't working properly is because it's become so entrenched into my daily life that I just assume that it'll be there for me all the time, like some sort of extension of me. And that's just scary considering that we're talking about machines here.
I need to get away for a really long time in some remote island, where I can just disconnect from all the wires, cables, plug-ins and what not.
I'm also deeply suspicious about this new empowerment that traffic policemen are getting over us. It's possibly the worst road to go down amidst all this talk about no corruption, no graft, no bribe, no this and that. That's Malaysia for you, one step forward and two steps back.
It's just been a really stressful day!
Now I need to get back to my stupid assignment.
