My computer people called last night at 5:30 to inform me, my new computer had been birthed and it was ready to come home. I still don't have a name for her. My other one was named FRED, which is an acronym for "Freaking Ridiculous Electronic Device", but I want a nice name for this baby girl.
You know what I did? I waited until this morning to go get it. I had rather enjoyed the whole day without wondering what was on FB, or in my e-mails. Without having it in my mind that the computer was waiting in my office--calling me.
She is the most precious computer I have ever seen. It is half the size of my printer! It can stand or it can lay. It's only 4" thick!!
Updated Microsoft Office--which right now is giving me fits because nothing looks right, and Windows 10, which so far isn't bothering me a bit.
A nearly $500.00 computer for $375.00 because I'm a faithful customer and I had spent $200.00 in April for work done on the old one. She even threw in a new power cord--which I needed as mine was 20 years old and taped on one end with electrical tape.
The new upgrade in Microsoft Office/Outlook Express, fixed all my e-mail problems I had when I was fighting with Comcast last week. I could send e-mails, but not receive and Comcast said it was my problem.
To celebrate my new baby, I stopped at Walmart and got a new keyboard and mouse. My old keyboard had most of the letters worn off. I can type without looking, but it is nice to have a new one plus--both keyboard and mouse are wireless! Stick a little nubbie thing into a USB port and off we go, no wires. I love it!!!!!
Now, I just have to remember to take it in for cleaning ever 6 months. Mine gets full of dust and cat hair. They put it into a machine, no charge, 30 minutes while you wait, and the machine cleans all the dirt, grime, grease, cat hair out of it.
Comment moderation is now driving me nuts. I keep forgetting to "publish" your comments and so far haven't figure out an easy way to do it, but I'm learning.
