I'm Back!

My Dell desktop arrived today, ten days early! It's taking me a little time to set everything up but now I can catch up on all your blogs! I felt so lost. Just this weekend the old computer took a turn for the worst in Safe Mode and had to be unplugged. I wasn't looking forward at all to waiting almost two weeks. What a surpirse when FedEx rang the bell.

The only drawback is that my printer is not supported by Windows 7. So I'll be shopping for a printer this week. But I don't care..I have a computer!!!

  1. Welcome back! I got a Windows 7 awhile back, and like you, my old printer isn't compatible. So I found an inexpensive but good laser one at Staples. I love Windows 7. It has a great touch. I think you'll enjoy it!!

  3. Welcome back! Good luck with your new system. Isn't it amazing how much we rely on electronics? Kind of scary, if you think about it.

  5. Congratulations! I know that feeling. Why does No-Computer feel akin to missing a limb? Isn't that crazy?? But, ahhh, they're so nice to have!

    Welcome back.

  6. Thanks, everyone:) I've been spending time now just getting to know Windows 7 and Office 2010. Things sure change from one edition to the next, by the time I figure it all out, it is time to change again:)

  7. Welcome back! A have an antique desktop and a two year old laptop. I'm scared about what will happen when I have to upgrade.

  8. Oh my, I understand! Life (almost) isn't worth living if there's no computer to enhance it with. So crucial in these times for writers.

    Nice to "meet" you. :) Wishing you the best, and finding inspiration here at your blog.

  10. Isn't it wonderful when a merchant under-promises and over-delivers? Hope the printer search works out just as well for you. Wish I had something to recommend, but it has been several few years since I've had to shop for one.
