More frustrations

So now NVivo is on my laptop, but it keeps closing of its own accord before I can start working with it. I think there must be something in my laptop settings, as I’m having no problems with it at work, and never did on the laptop either before until I recently had to reinstall Windows. I could just leave it all for work, but the whole point of having it here was so that I could be productive but not have to be chained to my desk. Grrrrrr. And bah for that matter.

I can’t be doing with this. Sorry for the whinge, but I’m really cheesed off. [please don’t anyone point out that HD is techie, that wouldn’t be helpful right now, as I don’t want to treat him like my own personal tech support, plus it’s software he doesn’t know so I can’t just take him for granted that he’ll fix it] I just want to do a bit of not-particularly-demanding work, so I can do the demanding stuff in my office during the day, but it’s just not happening. V. fed up right now.

  1. It’s the worst, isn’t it? If there’s one thing that will turn me into a raging murderer within seconds it’s malfunctioning software. My translation software has just thrown a wobbler and right now I seem to be remarkably calm about it. I’m not sure why. Exhaustion to the point of expiring might have something to do with it.
    Hope it all resolves itself happily soon 🙂

  2. Jack, thats crap. will the IT department at work look at it for you?

    My sister has very nearly finished her PhD thesis when word decided it didn’t like her vey vey long document and refused to open the last 100 odd pages of it, until she saved each page individually and then repasted them all back together.

    Do you feel you’re doing your PhD despite the technology?

  3. Isn’t personal tech support what husbands are for?! (Mine seems to provide that service to the rest of his family, so I don’t see why he shouldn’t for me!)

    Hope it all behaves itself properly soon.
