The Computer is dead. Long live the Computer!
I am now the possessor (or should it be loyal subject?) of a shiny new laptop. My computer gave up the ghost last week. It's always a traumatic experience, and I still don't know if I can get all the data retrieved.
I've also switched from an iMac to a Windows laptop. (If you're technophobic, you may want to stop reading now.) I decided I couldn't justify the extra money for another Mac, but as I started to use Mr Kitsch's laptop last week, I began to realise that I'm a Windows user at heart, anyway. I just don't get why people rave about Macs. There's very little that works better on a Mac, and a lot that works better on Windows.
Now that I have my new laptop with Windows 7, it feels like coming home. Even the fact that they fail to put 'proper' email software on Windows 7 (yes really!), hasn't put me off. The main problem is that I only had half my data backed up, so if Dr McApple can't get it for me I'm a bit stuck. Main problem at the moment is not having anybody's email addresses. Oh well.
So that was why there was no blogging from me last week (did anyone notice?). I've actually got lots to tell you about, but that'll have to wait until next time.
