Kerri's Progress Notes:
I will now blame my small word count and lack of reading time to the "Great Computer Saga 2013" that I experienced yesterday. I tried to go into Windows 8 with a positive attitude despite what I'd heard about it, but...the rumors were true. It stinks.
I found it to be very user un-friendly and took up way too much of my time trying to simply set it up. Alas, after a 2 hour set up process, I still hadn't managed to get things the way I like them. I spent too much time trying to "find things". When that little Start button disappears, I was lost.
Then, on top of that, I HATE the keyboard. It feels very "loose" and makes a very loud click sound. Makes me think of horse hooves on cobblestone streets in a migraine inducing sort of way. It was an unsuccessful purchase to say the least.
I phoned the company's customer service and must have sounded pitiful because they authorized a return. Apparently, this is unusual for them but when I told them that I was a writer/editor and the keyboard satisfaction was an urgent matter for me--they gave in. :-)
So, today, I'm back on the old jalopy. Still running (barely) and I wish I could just keep it. But...I'm going to try out one more that got rave reviews from some other writers and tech guys (who spend a lot of time on it). Will keep you updated.
Hope all of you had a great writing day yesterday and will do just as well (if not better) today.
