A New Computer

Hi There Everyone,

Hope you are all well, and enjoying the weekend.

I have been a bit distracted from almost everything these past few days ... I got a new computer !!

Yep, a beautiful new toy.

It is a Toshiba Notebook, with lots of goodies ... makes my old (well, only 3 1/2 years old) NEC Notebook look downright dinosaur-like. And the speed ... whoo-hoo, going from 256meg Ram to 2gig Ram is just amazing. I'm having so much fun. This new one runs Windows Vista, and I am having a few teething problems with some software I want to run ... but it is all gradually working out.

For some reason, though, I cannot install Itunes ... it just doesn't want to do it. Also, when I tried to upload some photos onto Ebay, to sell something, it wouldn't let me do that either. If there is anyone reading this who can fill me in on how to solve this, please do ... I would love to hear from you. Thank you.

(UPDATE: I now have Itunes working ... not sure why it didn't want to install initially, but I eventually got it ... yay !! Now I still need to figure out why Ebay wouldn't let me upload photos !!)

Anyway, I'd better go, still got lots of stuff to install on this lovely new toy (oh, and I spose I'd better do some housework, laundry, cooking, too !!).

Will be back soon.

Take care,

Congratulations on your new toy, Connie! I hope you get everything worked out soon. Nothing is more frustrating than computer problems, in my opinion.

I hope to get a new computer soon. I'm really undecided about getting the Vistas operating system though. I'm thinking I'd rather have the last version of Windows XP, but we'll see.

Have great Sunday! :-)

Love and hugs,

Diane

Hey Connie,
Congratulations on the new toy !! Great News, bout time !! I have changed my internet provider to bigpond so the old email address you have for me (the froggy one) is no longer around how sad I have had that e-mail address for 8 years. I am hating every minute of bigpond the old internet was so much quicker and much more reliable, I tried to go back on my old plan and cancel bigpond but no such luck. Oh well !!
Anyways enjoy the new comp to email the user name is the same as the old one only a 3 at the the end then bigpond.com.au take care
Love to all Melinda

Congrats on the new toy!!
Thanks for visiting my Yeats TT last week. I've been away for the weekend, so I'm very late to return the favour!

Hello !!! Congrats on the new notebook. My parents are running vista on their computer, so I understand about programs not running properly for you. My mom has itunes on it so I'll ask how to do that and send it to you. All is well in this part of the world. Love the fall season!! Everything is soooo pretty!! Take care and have an excellent day!! Cheers!
