Acting Balanced

The Rules: I’m going to ask FOUR QUESTIONS that everyone can answer and then you have the option to add a fifth question of your own for those who are visiting your blog to answer in the comment section, along with commenting on the four standard questions you answered!

1. Which are you better at: Reading, Writing or Math?
At this point reading. I used to be a wiz at math but not anymore.

2. Tell us a good ‘come back’ story. Where you were down but were able to reverse fortunes and come out on top.
HA! I’m still waiting for that day to come.

3. Which would you rather do: dine or eat?
Is there really a difference? You just have to wait for your food to be served when you dine and THEN you can eat.

4. What is one thing the someone close to you does that just annoys the heck out of you?
A friend mispronounces quite a few words. Drives me absolutely batty.

And your question is:
Don’t you hate technology sometimes?

I have this plugin called Defensio on my blog to catch all the spam. Sometimes it catches real comments but I filter through it all before deleting the spam. However, for the past few days it has not been working. I keep having connectivity issues. Tweeting Defensio gets no response but they did make a tweet on the 27th of February that they had an API issue. Well, that API issue still isn’t fixed and it’s driving me crazy because all of the comments have to filter through that plugin and at this point they are being bottlenecked. I could turn it off but then a slew of spam will go through, so here I sit and wait for the connectivity issue to be over with :/

    definitely have a love-hate relationship with technology. I love it when it all works fine, but get so frustrated when something goes wrong. We get so used to our “connectivity” and when it goes asunder….AAAGGGGH!!!
    And yet, I hate to be tied to my iPhone and hear it chiming all the tweets, likes, comments, etc. etc. I guess I am quite conflicted about social media – LOL. If I didn’t have a blog, I wouldn’t bother at all.
    But writing…I LOVE. I must. so…here I am.

    Sadly, though I use it a lot, I hate technology most of the time. I like to use it when it is necessary, not just as a toy.

    I use Akismet for spam and I love it. The only time I don’t like technology is when they power goes out and it doesn’t work. Otherwise, it is one of my favorite things.
