    If it doesn't work you hit it with a hammer. If it is of bad quality it will smash.

    That is coincidentally why your mother is always getting hammered and smashed. :awesome::banana2::bban:

    I'm hopeless without technology.

    No technology = not being able to hear

    I just wish technology were more reliable.

    Always hate installing my printer whenever I get a new PC. Never straightforward.

    Technology always works unless someone or something does something that would make it not work.

    For example:
    If your computer was working until you had a power cut, that would probably be the thing that stopped it from working.
    If you switch your printer off at the wall every night, do not be surprised when you have to turn it back on at the wall to make it work again.
    If you installed a piece of software from softonic yesterday and now your computer has been infected with ransom-ware, have a guess at the place from which it came.
    If you kicked your computer because you thought 'boot-up' meant smash it to pieces with wellingtons on your feet, do not be surprised that it does not work.
    If you put your laptop on the photocopier and pressed 'scan', you will not have cleaned it of viruses.
    If you have Caps Lock on and you didn't when you set your password, do not be surprised when your password does not work.
    If you are e-mailing tech support to say that your internet is not working, unplug your computer, put it back in the box in which it came, and take it back to the shop from which you bought it; you do not deserve the use of such a marvel of modern engineering.

    I'm generally quite lucky. Nothing major's gone wrong with my technology, I'm hopeless if anything does though.

    I know a fair amount about computers, I can build one fairly confidently. I think I'd be fine solving hardware related problems but anything software related, I'm screwed usually and have to ask/pay someone to help me.

    So why does for example just now when I wrote on someone's Facebook timeline Using the iPhone app, why did it not post twice but only the third time? And it took ages the first 2 times to fail.

    What caused that?

    There was an error somewhere along the line that meant that the post didn't go through. Your signal wasn't strong enough. Their servers were busy. The packet loss was too high. There's a plethora of reasons, but they everything has a cause, often quite a small and seemingly insignificant one.
