No Pictures

I am juggling computers right now and all my pictures are on the other one. Paul bought a new laptop for work at it turns out to be nothing but a headache for him. It has the dreaded Vista on it and it seems to be a terrible program that does not work with his blackberry, his wireless printer at the office and various other programs he uses all the time.

It turns out that the Welcome Back clinic we are involved with has network that Paul will be on and it is a Mac network. Of course he found this out three months after he bought this computer. This computer has been back to the shop eight times since Paul bought it. I tried to get them to take it back but they won't. They tell me they will fix it as many times I need them too, but they will not replace it.

I now have the Vista computer, I run fewer programs than Paul does and I have only had it to the shop twice. I have not had any trouble with it since Monday, but that was the last time I turned it on!

I have some pictures I have wanted to share for a while. I am hoping to get them onto this computer sometime Friday. I have been doing some painting in the house and it has been keeping busier than it should.

Two more kind of random things:

computer trouble was the reason my meez was snorkeling for so long.

It looks like the Welcome Back group will be getting a great deal on Mac's as they are buying a whole bunch of them so Paul should be able to network just fine.

Although most PC's come loaded with Vista you don't have to put up with it. I don't know who services your computers but you might ask them if they have copies of Windows XP operating system. It is still available for purchase. I know people who won't by a new computer because of Vista. Just buy XP put it on your machine. Some computer companies will put it on for you but you must ask. As far as I know Dell only puts Vista on their machines. In any case there is no reason to put up with Vista.

Morgan has Vista on his computer and so far he hasn't had any problems. Good luck getting everything straightened out.

I have Vista on the laptop I bought last September. I have to say I like XP way better but I haven't had any problems with Vista. Well, Adobe reader doesn't seem to like it, that's my only problem.
