A recent update “did something” to my printer driver, or the network that my printer is connected to — or is supposed to be connected to. I suddenly couldn’t print. And I had a very important print job waiting. A recipe for a five minute chocolate cake that I wanted to try. I ended up writing the recipe on a small notepad, and left out the line about the milk. I made the cake without the milk because I couldn’t get my printer to work! It tasted fine — it’s hard to ruin a chocolate cake, after all. But still.
This is when I really feel a serious lack of tech savvy. Maybe I could have gotten around the network that wouldn’t connect if I knew more about how to nuts and bolts program. But I don’t. I just had to assume that someone else (who could work on the program) would have the same issue and would write a patch, and I would get an update shortly that would make everything shiny again. And so it came to pass.
I just love my Ubuntu.
