Frustration

frustration (n): the feeling that sets in when one decides to install a piece of software and/or make a tiny change to one's desktop or network settings or whatever, in the interest of making some work task "easier", that should theoretically take ten minutes, but in reality takes over two hours (most of which is spent tracking down weird and obscure errors), thus ruining one's perfectly planned morning of writing and revising.

Oh, god, that happened to me today too :-(.

I'm convinced we're living parallel lives this week. I spent three hours yesterday installing a "simple" Eclipse plug-in.

Sorry for your frustration.

It must be a bad week for computers or something! Is there a full moon this week??
