New computer madness

For Christmas BigD got me a new computer. Well actually all the parts for a new computer. S1 built it for me last night (after returning a faulty motherboard initially). Well...S1 hates Micro*soft so when he builds computers for people he uses a Lin*ux/Ubun*tu system that is really slick. But, me being old and stuck in my ways....I am having one hell of a time getting used to this system this morning. You know, old dog-new tricks. Worst of all, none of my favorites are on this system. I am SO glad that blogger introduced me to the dashboard faves thing so I do have many of my blogs at that link but there are others that I check once in awhile so I am going to have to add them as I think of them. If you know anyone that deserves a kick ass computer with free phone tech support for life (from a really smart, self proclaimed geek) let me know. You too can be the owner of such a computer (with ridiculous processing speed--so fast it goes to the next page while I am still THINKING about clicking the mouse) for about $600-$700 bucks. (his fee, includes everything:) For work I am hoping the new system is compatible with the new employer...if not, you will probably hear my scream..wherever you are. I have a phone conference today with their Human Relations Department head. Oh crap...it's in 15 minutes...gotta run. Speaking of old dogs, I want to leave you with a challenge. Can you touch your nose with your tongue?

I hate Micro *soft as well....of course it has nothing to do with the fact that I can never remember my password and I can never get a response back from them when I enquire....Grrrrrrrr

As for the nose bit...Um no....I cannie reach...lol xoxoxo

Some days I wonder if computers have caused me more gray hair and lost time or added convenience and productivity to my life.

I hope it works out!! I have to take my computer tower into the new hospital I will be working for so they can get my software loaded. Ugh, I just hope it works...

Hey!! I got your comment about the recruiter. I would LOVE that information if you wouldn't mind passing it along. I'm keeping my eyes and ears open for anything and everything at this point. I would really love getting back into transcription again also, so that catches my eye even more.

Thanks!!
