why ma’habocath no longer bothers with tech stuff anymore

This one has gone through the following process over 100 times:

1] have problem, or want to do something (eg “make Opera auto-open certain files”, “root phone”)
2] Google it
3] pick set of instructions not yet tried and follow
4] didn’t work; either stopped at one of the steps (eg “step 4 = go to Menu XYZ” … Menu XYZ nonexistent, or “step 7 = open pref.ini, find ‘foo = 0’ and change to ‘foo = 1′” … no foo to be found) or follow all steps and nothing happened
5] if patience > 0 and irritation < suppressing_urge_to_punch_something goto 3, else goto 6
6] give up before punch_something = 1 and/or down_sorrows_in_vodka = 1

ma'habocath knows some, tells much. ma'habocath knows few things others do. This one is a live-alone, full-time burger-flipper with an odd mind and too much to say. ma'hab always tries the best ma'hab can to keep up: • Chores • Bodybuilding and other health-nuttery • Japanese language studies • Culinary experimentation (see “other health-nuttery”) • Exploration of newfound spiritual territory • Exploration of my Self • Figuring out how to socialize well enough, mostly face-to-face • Backlogs: books, heavy metal, anime • Blogging, chatting, texting, and talking to whomever will listen about all of the above
