I realise how irritating this post will be to some of you. I do. But I *need* this whinge. The good news - the new laptop has arrived in all its red glory. (Pic will be included if (a) blogger plays ball, and (b) laptop plays ball.) The frustrating part is - so many glitches with this swop-over! Partly, I spose, cause they have loaded Windows 7 but, oh my hat! Everything is demanding passwords: network, skype, my email won't deliver unless I produce one either. And I have no idea what any of them are! I have just spend a while with the technician trying to iron out the problems: the scenario is not pretty. Apparently they might need my old computer to get certain info. My old computer has gone to a new home about 1000 k's away. Gloom. Its really great that FB and my blog can be accessed easily - at least I can vent here. But at the mo, I have a few really important emailsto deal with (oh, plus a whole wodge of received emails - from April last year till a couple of days ago have just vanished from my inbox. Its pretty disastrous cause the important stuff is linked with those incoming ones.) I have just discovered that downloading my photos is going to need a university degree with this new set up. So, no pic of shiny red laptop yet Double gloom. But, hopefully, the senior boffin will arrive later on his white charger to rescue me And I will be a very happy camper And will post a boastful pic of my new toy Till then.
