Blessing in disguise

Friday, March 29, 2013

I had computer problems for the last couple of days, which bummed me out badly. My computer is the center of my social life and I can't have it not working.

Well, after over an hour on online chat with an AOL tech, it's working faster and better than ever! For the moment I have to access Spark through Google Chrome instead of AOL, but even that may be fixed because the tech is reporting that on IE8 AOL won't display Spark properly. But I did need to get IE8 because I have a lot of Youtube videos bookmarked and Youtube doesn't support IE7 any more.

It feels great to have this beast running properly again!

    I am sure glad you are up and running, I know when my computer is on the blink, I miss it so much. I see Google Chrome, but have not tried it

    Aren't computer problems the worst kind to have? I find many problems are easier to deal with if you walk away for about ten minutes. Do your 10 minute of cardio or exercise and when you come back, either the problem has an easy fix or you figure out how to work around it. emoticon

    Oh, boy! Every once in a while, someone in tech gives us not only something that ISN'T a "bum steer," but turns out to help our 'puters kachunk away like gangbusters! So glad things turned out beautifully for you! emoticon I switched to Chrome, too, with excellent results... Happy Easter emoticon emoticon emoticon
