Computer Woes and Other Stuff
Well, I haven't been around for awhile . . . think I am a very lazy blogger. I hope to change that starting now. In my last message, I was having computer problems and I continued to be harrassed by malfunctions until I got the blue screen of death a couple of weeks ago. Long story short, I now have a new computer, but I also lost old software and tons of files that aren't compatible with Microsoft 7. My current website was created back in 1998 with software that doesn't exist anymore, so now there is no way to update it. I had started creating a new website with "WebEasy 7" and had several pages finished and saved. Oh yes, I lost all of it. Grrrrr. The Geek Squad at Best Buy did manage to transfer some of the stuff on my old hard drive to the new one, but I had many, many, many photos of bears I had made from 1997 to now that are gone. sigh And my photo editing software apparently isn't compatible, either, because it won't install. I tried getting support from Microsoft and eMachines for that particular problem, but everyone wants to charge a steep fee for resolving the issue. Rats! So, now I'm thinking maybe I will try featuring a bear or two for sale on my blog. That is, after I figure out how I want to do that. So, folks, check back from time to time . . . the times, they are a-changin'.
