Pinch Me Now!!!
One silver lining when things get old, wear out and break aka computers, camera's etc. You have to get new ones. I am fortunate enough (ok so happy and grateful) that I am actually able to replace my computer. I know a lot of people who might not be able to do this right now and that doesn't go unnoticed. I am really really really thanking my lucky stars right now and pinching myself at my good fortune that I have the means to do this. As you might remember my computer has been crashing, blue screening and having to be re-staged (hard drive wiped and re-installed which did not GO WELL). OK fast forward. I was pretty sick of Windows OS. Pretty sick of the fact that after having to wipe out my hard drive and reinstall everything of which I LOST ALL OF MY DIGITAL PHOTO FOLDERS in the transfer) MS kept telling me I had a pirated unauthenticated copy of Windows. OK PEOPLE I DO NOT. I HAVE THE ORIGINAL CDs that came with the computer. Whatever. MS proceeded to block any SP updates, the use of Media Player (my preference player) and lock up web surfing whenever it felt like it. Needless to say it has been frustrating and no I did not have time to hold for TECH SUPPORT or pay extra for it. ENTRE' APPLE are you surprised? I am a card carrying sworn member of MS Windows OS. NOT ANYMORE. I just got one of these puppies...I haven't figured out how to insert a graphic so you will just have to click on the link to see a picture. I am so excited. I also got the wireless mouse and a keyboard for when we are using the laptop at home. We will also hook up to a larger stationary monitor. Ok enough for now.
