Oh the pain of pounding my head against technology!
I can relate!!!
As a semi-retired person or person who works part-time (the description depends on how I am feeling at the moment LOL) I do contract consulting work for an international firm. I get paid about 4 times a year and don't care about all of the internal informative emails, etc. However, I do like to access my paychecks online and print them as a record. Well it just took an hour with the help of an admittedly very cheerful and responsive help desk employee to set me up with login information for my corporate email account, my intranet account and my PeopleSoft account. Argh!!!! Three accounts just to get a pay stub.
In the end I did print out what I wanted, but I hate that I have to monitor this email account and reset all three passwords every 60 or 90 days just to get this one piece of information once in a while.
Do you have a love-hate relationship with technology at times? I certainly do.
