Updates and upgrades

What an exasperating exciting time I’ve been having.

Here are just a few of the ups and downs I’ve had to deal with over the past 2 months.

😧 Computer crashed and was sent away for repair.
🙂 Was able to use iPad and borrowed laptop instead.
🤔 Had to learn how to use iPad and laptop.
😧 Camera developed a fault.
🙁 Advised that replacing camera was best option.
😃 New camera more powerful and with more features.
🤔 Had to learn how to use new camera.
🙁 Needed new camera software on computer.
😕 Computer still being repaired.
😃 Repaired computer returned with new hard drive.
 😕 Took 3 days to reinstall software and saved files.
 😬 Computer crashed, sent for repair again.
 🤔 Had a look at new computers.
 😃 Shiny new computer!
 🤔 Had to learn how to use shiny new computer.
 🙂 All set to resume regular blogging.
 😕 Not happy with Blogger changes.
 🙂 Decided to move blog to Weebly.
 🤔 Easier said than done!

I keep telling myself it's good to learn new things, but I could really do with an updated, upgraded brain.

Oh, poor you, Linda! What an ongoing ordeal - but thank you for blogging about it in such a way as to make me chuckle - albeit wryly! :)

All in all a bit of a learning curve then!

More of a very steep learning cliff, Wendy!

Technology is great when it works and a real pain when anything goes wrong.

PS I tried Weebly and gave up.

Linda D said...

Yes, Patsy, I can't help wondering if all this 'progress' is really only making our lives more complicated!
I'm trying out a Weebly blog because I used them for my website and thought I could find my way around on there okay, but they will keep adding on 'improvements'!

Well I think you're very clever for knowing how to tap out a word and put a line through it ! I cant do that ! LOL ! x

Linda D said...

Thanks for popping in, Debs. It took me a while to discover that trick too! If you use Word software for typing your blog posts look for a symbol in the toolbar that shows abc with a line through it (on mine it's next to the B - for bold, I - for italic, U - for underline symbols. Highlight/ select the text you want to strikethrough and then click the abc symbol. I like to call it magic.

Oh dear, Linda sorry to hear about all your technology issues. Mine have been tiresome enough but sounds like you have been really run ragged. I like your positive attitude though, always good to learn new things! Hope you're back on track real soon.

Paper and pencil, anyone?

And a return to snail mail, Julia :)
