I’m trying to start a Tumblr for my life modelling stuff and the process is FRUSTRATING THE SHIT OUT OF ME (NB: I’m PMSing right now).
I updated the theme – and Tumblr seems to believe it’s displaying my chosen theme – but it is not. Selecting that same theme several more times didn’t work, and neither did screaming curse words at the screen or restarting the whole goddamn computer. I’m at a loss.
Also, I’d like this new Tumblr blog to have a title and an “about me” section, and I know these things are possible because other people have them, but I can’t figure out where to go to put this stuff on my page.
On an entirely separate note, I tried downloading Firefox a few minutes ago (The Pedant says it’s better than Safari, and I’m wondering if using a different browser might finally make Tumblr display my page theme correctly). The instructions said to download Firefox and then drag it into the applications folder. The applications folder wasn’t with the other crap that permanently resides at the bottom of my screen, so I found it manually and figured out how to put it there. And the Firefox icon won’t drag into it. Not even when I tried displaying the app folder as a “folder” instead of a “stack,” whatever the fuck any of that means.
I do not for the life of me understand how anyone thinks the Mac is “more intuitive” than a PC. Some days every tiny motherfucking thing I want to do on this thing is a struggle.
Aso, I’ve only had this Airbook for six months or so and already the power cord doesn’t seat itself right anymore (it’s wobbly now and I have to carefully avoid bumping it askew and interrupting the charging process) and the cursor does some weird stuff when I type. For a while, the browser was locking up and needing to be completely restarted several times a day, but I tentatively think those problems ended the last time I did a software update.
I love the physical design of the machine (so light and thin!) and how fast it starts up, but the pants-jizzing evangelism people display toward Macs is frankly alien to me. Being a Mac user is not at all the smooth and effortless ride I’d been led to expect.
