'Hilda', who has been giving me BIG fits for the last several months...finally gave up the ghost.
I 've got a surprise for you...
Here's a hint...
I am typing to you from my kitchen...something I have never been able to do.
Yep! I got a new computer.
Okay, so the surprise was more for me than for you.
Sorry about that...
But YAY me!
The old beast which I secretly called 'Hilda' and who has been giving me BIG fits for the last several months, finally gave up the ghost. I doubt she can be fixed, so she has been replaced by a brand spanking new Dell...which I am already in love with.
Does anyone know how to run a webcam.
Wait! Do I really want to know how to run a webcam?
I mean, after all...isn't one of the joys of working from home, working in your jammies?!
And I definitely don't want anyone seeing me in my jammies.
I need to seriously thank my parents here for helping me out on this one. I have a BIG project due next week and since Hilda was giving me fits and I was pulling all of my hair out - and since we haven't gotten our tax refund back yet, Mom and Dad spotted us until the refund comes in a couple of weeks.
Thanks Mom & Dad! (I think they read the blog.)
So anyway...I'm thinking the new laptop needs a name, so here's where you all come in.
Put on those thinking and give me your best suggestions.
If you come up with a winner I promise to be very grateful and send up extra prayers of thanksgiving for you. ;)
Who knows...I may be even willing to mention you in my blog and make you famous.
