Okay, I know that I am not the best on computers. I subscribe to the old adage, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” I have not upgraded my operating system on my computer since I got it a number of years ago. Consequently I have been having more and more difficulty interfacing with some of the sites that I use, including WordPress. It was to the point that I couldn’t even publish a blog for the last few weeks. So, I decided that it’s about time to upgrade!
Ah! As you may have guessed, this is easier said than done. I won’t bore you with the details which involved Apple support, disks that would eject at all the wrong times, or would not eject at all, external drives, different USB cables, discussions with my son and husband, googling for answers to problems etc. But, Hooray! I can upload a picture. I think I am set…..but wait.
Of course, the browser is not co-operating, the browser needs to be upgraded as well. I should have known. Everything takes longer than you think. But, Hooray! My browser is upgraded and I have uploaded a picture. I think I am set……but wait.
My trackpad is acting up and I can’t seem to turn it off. It was off before I upgraded but now it is going a little crazy. Google to the rescue again and I am back in business. This time I think it is for good, or at least for a while. Hooray!!
P.S. Hooray too soon!!! My computer and my printer are no longer speaking to each other. I am trying to broker the agreement, but, so far no luck. I will keep working on it.
In my little corner of Northern Colorado, the weather is 43° partly cloudy and very windy. But this is nothing compared to the extreme weather that has hit the midwest and the southeast in the last few days. Our thoughts are with the towns and families affected by the storms.
