Hey, I did good!
It has been a while since I have felt good about something I did, so today I am going to toot my own horn a bit.
Last Saturday somehow the wireless on my husband’s laptop stopped working. The machine is only six months old, and he and I were both pretty disgusted. He spent most of the last week trying to get it to work. No luck.
Then a couple hours ago I asked if I could take a look at it. I tried several Linux distros (He was running Mint Debian when it stopped working.) all to no avail. I searched forums and tried everything I could even halfway understand how to do.
Then, I tried one more command. And it worked! I restarted the machine and it still worked. I gave it back to him and it still worked!
I like doing that kind of work. I am patient and just keep trying things until something good happens. (Occasionally it takes more than a couple hours, of course!).
I wonder if this is something I should investigate as I try to figure out what I want to do with my life. Could I be a computer person? I wonder…
