Shiny New Toy

Let me introduce to you my shiny new toy:New Laptop

Isn’t she pretty? 🙂   She is a HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook PC with Intel Core 2 Duo CPU @ 2 Ghz, 4 GB of Ram, and 64-bit Operating System (Insert Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor’s Grunt from Home Improvement).  My Dell was slowly dying and it was time to upgrade.  It is running Windows Vista Home Premium which I’m slowly becoming a fan of Vista (or more like I have to or would be kicked out of the house).  In the initial set up, Mr. Charming showed me this Mac Ad which is very true if you have ever had to deal with Vista:

I got my shiny new toy with a  killer deal at Costco which reminds me that they just opened one within 15 minutes of the house. Woot!

Technically Challenged

Posted in Blogroll, Blogs, Computer, Mr. Charming tagged , , , at 9:11 am by smilinshell11

Sometimes I tend to be a little “technically challenged”.  Mr. Charming is a computer guru and why I didn’t ask for his help is a whole other post.  I know I haven’t updated about Las Vegas and that was because I couldn’t get my pictures to upload.  It didn’t help I was totally exhausted Saturday night and didn’t feel like trying to figure out where my html code was wrong or why Flickr wasn’t going to cooperate with me.  Maybe I will try again tonight and see if I have some success. 

In other news, WordPress redesigned their Dashboard log in and I was able to figure out how to add a Blogroll.  All I had to do was add the “Links” widget.  Booya Grandma.  Let me know if you want to be my blogger friend.  I don’t have many blogger friends because right now I’m a blogger loner. 😦
