I spent a good portion of the last couple of days on my computer. You always do a little bit, getting set up in a new place, because you have new internet service. But I have done a lot more than that. Let's take a look at my recent technological wins and fails.
Internet - I got this set up last Saturday, and it went pretty smoothly. My modem turned out to be out-of-date, so I had to go get a new one, but once I did that and called the set-up people, I was on-line! Technological Win.
Wireless - I also had to get a new wireless router, go figure. I have two technological Fails for this one. First, the internet set-up people tried to get me to set up my wireless their way, and it didn't work. I finally got off the phone with them, and tried following the instructions that came with the router. Tried being the operative word. These are the worst, most inaccurate instructions I have ever seen. I gave up for a few days - maybe I'll try again later today. This time, I'm just going to call the router support people.
Blogs - You may have noticed a few changes here on the blog. I added an 'Art and Faith' page, which takes you to my other blog, and added a 'My Author Blog' page on that one that takes you back here. I also added some 'gadgets' on the right - if you scroll down past my little profile summary, you'll see them. I only needed a little help from this Blogger Hints and Tips blog - I figured most of it out myself. That's a Win, folks.
Communications - This morning I went and got a headset with microphone and tested out my built-in webcam. The headset took a little fiddling, but it all works! I can now video chat. Or make vlogs. Or get into online gaming. Another Win.
I think that's it.
Yeah. Yeah, that's it. So, let's have a tally. Three Wins and two Fails. I officially win at Technology.
