Learning New Things
Jesse and Becca
The saying is that you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but I disagree. About two weeks ago my computer decided to be all done with computing. I was then left to the mercy of public access computers at the Library (what a wonderful service that is!) and those in private homes until I could replace it. I sit now at a MacBook. It is a used, older model but the price was right to let me try one without feeling like I was breaking our budget. I am slowly learning my way around the thing. For a long time Apple products have interested me. Jesse had partitioned the old machine so that I had one side running on Windows and the other on Kubuntu. I loved the Linux side. So when the machine died I was sick with the thought that I would have to give in and get something with Windows loaded on it until Jesse would be home and give me back Linux. It is very hard to wean myself from my tech supporting son but I am determined to do so! Now I don't have to wait for him at all 'cause I don't have the dreaded Windows. Hurrah! Look--I even added a photo, but I cheated and it wasn't from files on the machine. I'll learn that trick next. Woof Woof!
