My wonderful faithful laptop has finally passed on – and with it, years of photo’s and software, and everything I hold dear…Yes, I have backups (Thank goodness!) but it’s still a royal pain. Living with a computer geek has it’s privileges. I’m not without a computer – far from it. I’m not even going to tell you how many computers we have in our house (not all completely usable) .
It’s not the same though. My laptop was the only Windows based computer we have in the house. We also have a Mac, which I’ll now have to get used to using – I know Mac’s are supposedly really easy, but when you get used to working with something, and particular software – It’s hard to change.
Photoshop is gone…I now need to learn how to use the gimp on a unix box, or the mac to get any of my photo’s edited. Dreamweaver? Gone too. It’s been eons since I’ve edited a web page using VI. I don’t think I even remember how to type in VI!
Unless you’re a unix geek, you probably have no idea what I’m talking about. It’s enough to say that it’s ridiculously complex 🙂
Anyways – that’s why the late post, and nothing particularly interesting for me to talk about – as I was too preoccupied with my dead computer.
