I have my new computer at last. I had been hankering for a new one for a while, my old one being so sloooow. I love that my hubby considers computers as necessities, so i don’t have to wait for it to be a birthday gift or the like. He bought me it months ago in the States and it was shipped over. Its at least a year in the waiting, we were putting the purchase off till we were moving.
So i plug it in and BANG PUFF it blows up! Oops! Yes, it seems that i had forgotten to switch the Voltage to UK, as it had being bought in the USA. In all honesty, i didn’t even turn it on, i simply flipped the wall switch that allows power to travel to the computer (you don’t have those on USA wall plates) so i didn’t think i would need to flip the switch until i was going to power the actual computer on. Shows how much i know about electricity and electrical goods.
So, i purchase a new power brick thing for inside the pc, at a hefty price of 35 quid! And now have it all working. I installed that myself too, i may add. Its a beautifully quiet pc. I don’t real know its on and i sit literally right next to it – as you tend to do with pc’s i know, but its at ear height with no obstruction either.
I have never used any Windows online products, live messenger and the like, but its set to pop up when the pc is turned on. So annoying, so i went to uninstall it all. As i was uninstalling it it asked me about Windows live writer, do i really want to uninstall it? It made me think, do I?
I’m a blogger user (obviously) but sometimes it bugs me when adding photos and stuff, so thought i would give Windows Live Writer a chance. So this, unintentionally long and involved blog, nothing to do with Trainers or my bike, is the test post to see what i think. Is there any point in changing?
So to maintain the theme of being totally unrelated to trainers or a bike or in fact healthiness in any respect. For the photo test, i will use food photos, my baking.
SO far so bloody good!! Loving all the things you can do with photos. Kudos Windows!
Okay, so i’m convinced. There is a point. Yes!
