I love playing on my iPad but it just doesn't cut it for writing a post or doing any actual business online. I struggled to get a post written the other day and it went poof! right before my eyes. Arrgghhh! That was almost as annoying as the blank screen on my desk top.
Life is good though, thanks to God, hubby and Ron, our computer tech. The computer was old enough to have other issues besides the motherboard, and in computer years, the motherboard was obsolete and would have been hard to find and costly to replace. A new computer was the practical solution. Ron made a few recommendations regarding brands and models, we did some research online and then went to Best Buy. The new one should be operational this afternoon, and old data should be reinstalled later this week.
Along with a Windows upgrade, it looks like I will have to upgrade the version of Firefox that I use. I am using a very old (again, by computer standards) version because it is compatible with use of emoticons on a few message boards that I routinely visit.
Blogger and Facebook changes, system upgrades, and new hardware...wow...I hope this old dog can still learn a few new tricks!
