Computer Problems

Good grief! What a day!!
I toddled off to pick up my new computer today - a very cute and fancy laptop, with plenty of accessories, including a wireless router so I can sit in bed and blog! Well, that was the plan...
I am unsure what I have done to make it so mad at me, but once I tried to get everything set up, something went woefully wrong. Don't ask me what - I have no clue. I swear I followed the instructions faithfully!
The upshot of all this, is I am still using my old PC and have no satellite internet connection - oh my gosh how will I manage?!
I'm using dial-up to post this, but I just wanted to let you all know, I will be gone until next Tuesday, when my new modem for ADSL arrives and I get that set up. Dial-up is soooo s l o w...
so all I will be doing for the next week or so, is checking my emails.

I hope you all have a wonderful week, and I will have lots to tell you by the time I get back, I'm sure :)

Take care my friends...xxx

Just to let you know...I have a wireless laptop and it took me about 4 weeks to get used to it and understand it. I have used computers for years now..DO NOT and I say AGAIN DO NOT GIVE UP!! I sit in bed and all over the house with mine. I am very fortunate because I have a great neighbor who knows what I do wrong and many times I have done something?? wrong and never know just what that is. Just keep going and things just somehow turn out okay. I simply love mine and hardly ever touch my big PC anymore. My hubby now uses the big PC !! I will try to remember that you will be gone...Have a good time...Sandy

I also have a laptop at the lake that is wireless and we have a router. It is wonderful and you will love it once you get it up and working. Never have to worry about the phone being busy and it is fast. Hurry back and let us know how you like it. Have a good week..........

I'm experiencing the joys of dial-up also as we change ISPs. It is so slow loading pictures I can't stand it. I guess if that's the biggest worry in my life though things must be pretty good.

Ugh, sorry to hear about your computer problems, our speed will be fluctuating for the next 10 days due to our ISP changing settings at their end, although we will be getting upgraded to 8Mb, so it's going to be very fast indeed (or do we've been told!).

Hope your computer problems take a turn for the better, take care :)

Awww you'll be missed but it will be worth all the headaches when you're up and running. We haven't had dsl long and I am just loving it. We have a router and didn't even realize until my son, just for the heck of it, gave it a try on his laptop and doggone if he didn't get online. LOL Technology is a wonder.

oo we got a new laptop too, a reconditioned one, but new to us. Blogger has been hideously slow though today, I can't imagine what it must have been like on dial up. Hope you sort out your problems. Blessings.

Lol, after I posted my other comment our 'new' laptop has completely crashed and refuses to reboot. Looks like it needs rebuilding. Doh!!! Computers are so frustrating. Praise God we have a brother at church who knows about these things and is going to try and help us.
