    Whine and Cheese Party

    My laptop is no longer with us. The bright side is I didn’t like my laptop, it was a Chromebook and not well suited to my needs. Unfortunately it didn’t have a USB port so it’s going to take some doing to restore things and a few will be lost. The downside is the laptop sized hole in my crafting budget. Between now and Thursday I’ll be checking in but not as active, I prefer a laptop to my phone. Happy crafting!

    Oh no! That is so frustrating. It's always so much work to set up a new computer. I hope you are back up and running soon.

    FreedomLover - My 8-year old laptop recently stopped working. To be frugal, my new laptop is a Lenovo... highly rated, available from Best Buy.

    That said, it has a different keyboard reach which I am adjusting to. I have some photos I was looking forward to sharing here on FiberKind, but the current version of Windows Photo Gallery (which came pre-loaded on the new laptop) is not playing nicely: Instead of uploading photos from my camera or smart phone into folders neatly named by date, and presenting me with a stationary display which I may scroll through and make selections from... as the old software reliably did for 8 years... the new software is placing photos into unfamiliar locations, then presenting automatic slide shows of randomly chosen photos spanning many years. Unfortunately it seems I am no longer in charge of folder or file names, storage locations, or activities on my computer...! The software has taken over and is making decisions which I have not provided input into! We've been studying from resources on the web... Windows Support... there *must* be a way to change settings and get back in charge of the software.

    I'm also getting pop-up messages that Windows wants to further update my software! YIKES!

    Wishing you a smoother transition!

      Oh goodness - I feel silly. Why did I think this was written by someone other than you. *blush* I think I need sleep.

      I also ordered a Lenovo, I have some experience with the company and am not surprised to see them highly rated.

      The good news is things can only get better! You will have a brand-new, shiny computer and we will all love to see you when you get back.

      I do sympathise. I had similar problems a few weeks ago, when I was changing internet and phone suppliers and it all went a bit mad. You don’t realise how much you use computers until you don’t have them. My local library was my lifeline - their public access computers have their limits, to be honest, but they were worth their weight in gold to me at the time.

      We will be thinking of you.

        It arrived a day early so I'm back in the saddle again!
