Hi. My name is BHE, and I have dial-up internet. "Hi, BHE!"
Welcome to the Support Group for the Technologically Challenged. We have come together in search of guidance and direction in our quest to better ourselves as we venture into the blogosphere. It's not a place for the faint of heart. It's a place where we laugh and cry together. A place where we spend countless hours sitting at our computers, and loathe the dreaded Blogger Butt that seems to plague us.
Today, I am not asking for tips on shedding the Blogger Butt - although, that may be one of next week's posts. No, I am begging you to tell me about your laptop. Which brand did you purchase? What do you like or dislike about it? Does it make your eyes cross after looking at the screen for six hours at a time? What is the price range? Does it come in cute colors? Is it easy to transport?
I would also like to know which internet service provider you use. Do you have to plug the computer in, or do you have wireless service? If you have wireless service, have you had any problems connecting? What type of security measures do you have in place?
Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated! Last night, I sat at my home computer waiting for my DIAL-UP connection to actually CONNECT. EIGHTEEN MINUTES LATER it told me there was a server error. AAAHHHHHGGGGHHHH! I wanted to throw the whole thing out of the window. I believe I said this out loud. About that time, The Surveyor quietly left the living room and went into the bedroom to watch television. I'm certain that he will be pleased that I have started this support group to help with laptop research. It's much more comfortable to watch t.v. in the Lazy-Boy.
Thank you for your participation. This support group may prove to be extremely popular. Please be sure to sign up in advance.
