Southwestern Chicken Salad is loaded up with all your favorite Tex-Mex goodness! It’s easy to make, totally nutritious, and extremely tasty.
I have been lost in the land of technology garbledy gook since Sunday and really all I have to show for it is some freaking delicious food that I worked on while I had 875675 chat windows full of tech support open.
You are here for the food so I guess that’s a good thing, yeah?
Is it just me or is having to ask for help with unfamiliar technology like the most stressful thing ever? I try to warn them going in with my standard disclaimer: “Hello, my name is Heather and I have no idea what you are talking about, but I can follow directions.” About 3 out of every 5 get it and provide me with instructions suitable for a 5-year-old. But there are always TWO.
Two out of five tech support people that say things like, “You’ll need to extract the DNS from the WHM and then add it to the base of the sum of the cPanel with your FTP login credentials while tap dancing and balancing your laptop on your head.” And then they get all eye-rolley when you don’t understand.
