The computer nerd's been busy........

Thursday, September 12, 2013

I got my new laptop yesterday. I figure that my computer is 6 years old and starting to get cranky, so I went out and picked one with a 17" screen. I thought that would be nice...of course, now I have to set it up. So, I've been a busy little beaver. There are some things that I want and can't have because the machine is running with Windows 8 (had not choice) and not all programs are updated to work with it yet.

It's also confusing, because I no longer have a "Start menu" on the screen...it's "hidden". I know that after a few days it will be fine, but right now......Ugh!!! To know me is to know that I don't give up very easily and will spend all day and all night until it's just right!! Doesn't drive every crazy any more than it does me.

So, if you don't see me here, anyone got a Saint Bernard??

    I feel your new computer pain. Recently went through that pain myself.

    Thankfully our son is part Bill Gates and part MacGuyver. He can solve any computer problem, in his 15-year brain chock full of digital know-how.

    Yes, we are lucky. Except when it comes to clothing and feeding him.

    My son calls himself my "private tech support"....I sure do understand.
