I remember when...

all one had to do to watch TV was turn it on!!!! Don't misread me! I love technology, but sometimes it is just enough to make me crazy!! Last night after 12, my cable carrier downloaded a new guide for those using DVR's.....that would be me! All their info promised that I would not have to do anything...well, OK! That's how I like it ...nice and simple! But NO, my TV didn't work after the download and, of course, before it was all over I had clicked every button on everything. Next thing I knew, there was a screen that required a password! Parental blocks.....I never have used that and don't have a password. The screen was stuck. It would not go away no matter what I did. I jacked around with the thing until after 3 A.M. doing google searches trying to solve the problem to no avail. This morning I started making calls to the Geek Squad, since the TV is a Best Buy product. Someone there told me that if I would unplug the TV for a few minutes, it would re-set when I plugged it back in! Are you kidding me!!!! What a dork I am! It worked.

I should have known that as well because I know to do that to anything computer related. Duh!
