For well over a month now we have been enjoying the fun and excitement of our new computer. As I mentioned earlier, our decade old obsolete machine finally bit the biscuit at the end of September. Shortly thereafter, a new magic machine inhabited our domain.
This new addition took a few days to fully set up, with upgrades to our internet and software and systems and such.
And we have loved every iota of it.
A very fast computer is now matched with a very fast modem, complete with wi-fi and many more blinking lights. This lightspeed jump makes zipping along the world wide web so much more faster and funner. No more wait times. Podcast downloads pop in within nano-seconds. Everything flies now, much to our happiness.
Clicking into this theme is my new adoption of HootSuite. This social media management site is great for all things twitter, facebook and wordpress related. Some have warned me of the difficulties of this site, but I cannot understand their worries. It is very simple and elegant to use, with only a couple of hiccups along the way.
With this graduation to 2012 technology, we also took the plunge into Microsoft Office. Word is now mine to use and abuse, with Excel and Powerpoint being next on my hit list. Having used Quark since the dawn of time and before, switching over to this program was easy. So many desktop publishing tools are now integrated into every word processing programs, meaning learning them has been a relative breeze.
All over the innards of this device are neat little things we still have not touched yet. Every one in awhile we click open a folder and peak at it’s delicious contents.
So many facets still to discover. So many just waiting for us. Such fun!
