Snowy Saturday, just a vent…

Shoveled!   Will take bus to the union party tonight… but roads are pretty nice.   (Okay, will probably take bus, unless helmet gets on head as it sometimes does.)

I wish I knew why searching files doesn’t work any more.   I pulled up my flash drive, searched for *.xcf — GIMP files — and sorted by date modified.   The “most recent” – at least 8 months old.  Since I saved files there yesterday…  so when I went into a folder well, yes, yesterdays files are there, labeled as “GIMP files,” and with yesterday’s date.

GIMP is even nastier.   No, I can’t say “open” and look through folders.   I get a few recent files that I can choose from.  When I don’t remember exactly what I was calling things because no, this isn’t my full time job… and I can’t ask others who do this because no, this isn’t my full time job… it is frustrating.

Oh, and then there’s the fact that I can’t search for a string in a name anymore.   If I put in chart I only get files that start with chart.  When I try “num”  — then I’ll see numchart.  Take me back to the good old days when computers weren’t as “smart,” PLEASE!!!
