It’s been a wild ride this week! It’s almost always difficult making a choice about a new electronic device for your home. But when you’re under the gun, well, let’s just say, it’s something else! In the last year, I had given some thought to getting a laptop so I could be near my blog, when I go camping in my vintage trailer, this spring.
So armed with that in mind; as I headed out the door after my desktop imploded, I went straight to Costco; with my cell phone stuck to my ear, consulting my ‘computer man’ Dave, (bless his little heart!) and found a wonderful compact notebook! It was almost love at first sight (he kept suggesting it might be the best choice!). It is so overwhelming to just pick one! So here is where I thought I was done…nope, you want to be wireless with your laptop, right?…..ummmm RIGHT! So he had me pick up another electronic device, called an access point or wireless router and I NOW GO ANYWHERE IN MY HOUSE WITH MY NEW NOTEBOOK! And I should be able to use it in the yard (when it warms up). How much fun is that?
‘Computer Man’ was able to save my data and got everything set up in my new Windows 7, no more Vista!!!!!! AMEN TO THAT! So I am a very happy camper (or soon will be this Spring)! See making electronic choices, isn’t so bad after all….when you know Computer Man! (Thanks, Dave!)
It’s gonna’ take me some time to catch up with all the new technology but I just keep plugging along!
Sorry, there was no Thriftin’ Time Tuesday this week. I will try and make up for it later.
