Today was computer/internet day. Oh, and change the sheets day and make cornbread day. Probably some more stuff happened but can't remember anything much more than the computers. I finally exchanged the modem my provider sent me and insisted I replace the old one (6 mo old and working fine). Didn't work - couldn't get online. Not a good way to start my afternoon.
Since my laptop CD/DVD drive arrived, I drove to the computer techie shop with my laptop in tow and they installed the new drive. Great people there and knowledgeable. While there, I asked lots of questions about my modem and wireless box. The two techies were very helpful. When I got home I did what they said but couldn't get back on the internet although my laptop said it was on. Right. OK, then I spent hours online with my provider who flipped me from one tech to a higher techie and then yet a third higher level tech. Nothing worked. They FINALLY decided to send an on-site tech here to the house tomorrow. Fine, that's what I wanted all along. OK, things are now in motion.
After I got off the phone, I decided to try a few things myself. I'm not stupid -- retired, female, chubby, but definitely not stupid. Ahhhh, within one minute I had it fixed. Computer working, internet accessed, wireless humming smoothly. Maybe I should send RR an invoice. So now the tech support guy will arrive tomorrow to fix things - and I decided I will just let him come. Won't he be surprised to see a geezer did it herself!! Can't wait to see his bright young surprised eyes tomorrow. I have a few questions anyway, plus guess I'd cancel the appt if I knew how to contact the guy to stop him from coming.
I'm still dealing with DST. We lost an hour and thought I found it, or at least borrowed it from my awake hours. Must not have worked because since about 6 pm I've been extremely sleepy. Maybe I'll roll into those sheets early tonight.
Last Friday I planted seeds in some of those little seed starter trays. And today I noticed some of the flower seeds have sprouted. That was fast! Not the herbs yet, but hopefully they will be popping up soon too.
The three library books I picked out started out on a great note. The first book has been very good, actually to the point that it's difficult to put it down. Only about 75 pages left to read, but I have time, so no rush to finish, but I want to. But my eyes want to shut. I would bet on the eyes winning this contest.
