Computers, thumb drives, and maintaining contact
Computer issues are making things difficult right now, so I do not know how much longer I will be able to access the site and write (for now). I will do what I can, for as long as I can.
I want to thank MegL for steering me in the right direction. It seems that Chrome is eating up a lot of my CPU usage, and I am not sure, between it and a few other issues, whether I will be able to salvage this older laptop to do much. I am using Firefox right now to post this, but I am having similar issues trying to read and comment, as I do with Chrome.
I am on my way out the door to go buy a 32Gb thumb drive to download any writing and photo files that I have on the computer. All that I could find, I have dumped into six folders, and have them so I can just cut and copy to the thumb drive. I will have to go back and sort on the drive later.
It is time that I need to think about getting a new computer. In fact, I will get a desktop and a smaller laptop. I think the prices will likely start coming down to make way for the new year and products. I will take care NOT to buy anything with Windows 8. I have read enough to know this is not the way to go.
The big decision will be whether or not I decide to go the Apple route with this, which will likely be my last computer purchase.
My apologies to all of you for the fact that I will not likely be able to get to your pages to read and comment. I will do my best. I will also try to write as often as I can, to keep up. I just do not know how this is all going to affect what I can do.
I do have my phone, but I do not like writing from there, so it will simply be to send short check-ins to stay current.
