I need computer help. I put in a blank DVD to burn files off my computer, and I do the prompt thing where it asks me what I want to do with it. After telling it to open in the finder I wait for it to show up on the desktop...and nothing. I checked the preferences to make sure cds show up on the desktop, and the DVD shows up in the disk utility even though it's nowhere to be found in the finder or on the desktop. I go onto the support site and it's like I have no idea what you're talking about. Your computer obviously just hates you. So I give up, but I'm desperate because I have no space on my computer. I try to just burn it from the disk utility because apparently you can do that. It tells me to make a disk image and it makes a .dmg file and that does not sound like what normally goes down. WHY WON'T YOU JUST LET ME DRAG MY SHIT ONTO THE CD ICON ON THE DESKTOP AND BURN IT, COMPUTER? What is the problem? Anyone? Bueller? Laura?

Also, earlier my iPod went apeshit and had a freak out which ended in sadface. I went onto the support site for that, and I couldn't get it to restart in disk mode. Apple said to send him in to be serviced (Heh). I had my own freak out for a second "Ahh! He's hurt!" and then I decided to try smacking him around a little (Hey, it works on my remote.) and he started working again. Say what you will, but tough love gets results.


And because I don't want this post to be all sad emo computer woe:
What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

The West
Boston
North Central
The South
The Inland North
Philadelphia
The Northeast
What American accent do you have?


Which is funny because I was born in Missouri, grew up in southern Illinois, moved to Florida, and now live in South Carolina. Where do you think I'll move next, Atlanta or Dallas? And where the hell is my job in TV and/or radio?!

Word. Word. Word.

My burner sucks too. It does not burn. That is like a baker not baking or a printer not printing - it's your FUCKING PURPOSE IN LIFE MATE.

Thus, I can not help, just scream with you in your grief.
