Windows Live Writer Is Just Wrong!

Windows Live sucks, that's all I can say. It took forever to download, then after it was done, I could not actually access a writing page or anything else. It was a gigantic corpse of a program sitting there doing nothing. It hadn't even placed an icon on the desktop so I could get started. Oh, yes, something must be wrong with me or my computer, but there were no warnings or caution signs. I un-installed it and re-installed it again a few times and the fact that it took so long and HAD to have every other program shut down while it worked just made me more and more angry. I haven't been so frustrated with anything computer-related in my life! I'm so mad I don't even want to talk about all the horrible details. I assume the people who've been recommending it to everyone don't know that it can be such a heap of shit. Anyway, I never got into the editing screen in Writer, which was all I wanted. It seemed to force me to take 20 other programs with it, and it's hard to imagine that they helped.

And, oh boy, it was FREE! That really helped. What a skunk! What a piece of crap! Nonetheless, after recently having such a negative opinion about Google Chrome, I gueess I just don't like anything new any more. I get tired of figuring out new things. Maybe if it were a nice new car, though, I could figure it out...

    Me to Ron. I used to enjoy new things. Getting too old I guess for new things.

  2. In this case, it's possible that it's my fault, in which case I don't even care. It's also possible that something is wrong with my computer, but it was such a clever, interfering, spiderish program with it's tentacles in too many other places, it seems like it could have detected any lack of compatibility and told me to bugger off! I'd have been glad to turn loose of like it was a hot baked potato. So far, I remain ignorant of what may be wrong.

  3. If you ever get if figured out, let me know. I've been wanting to try it but sounds like it's not worth the bother.

  4. I have come to the conclusion that something is wrong with my computer that doesn't become an apparent problem very often, and thus I blame "other" things such as Windows Live Writer. Someday when I have nothing else to do, I'll sort it out or get someone else to do so for me! If a dozen things were giving me that much trouble, I'da dealt with it already!!! As it is, it's like somebody else's dead horse on the highway--it's awful, but it's not my problem yet.
