I am only posting this for I have nothing else to give, otherwise I probably wouldn't mention it. I got fed up with the sluggishness of my regular laptop and the near-death wheezes of my old travel laptop, so I got a new one. I went to Best Buy (that's why the limousine photo of the other day) "just to look". I decided to go with one that had the highest resolution available in a PC without jumping ship to a Mac as my wife constantly tells me I should. Besides the more than double in cost, the post photo processing program I use is not available for Macs and I didn't want to give that up. I was going to get another computer with a 15 inch screen like I had before. Once in the store...there she was, sitting over on the other table and I was immediately smitten with all of her 17.5 inches.
None were in stock so I had to wait 2 days before I could pick it up. That was okay as it gave me time to get the travel laptop cleaned out and my everyday laptop organized and backed up to an external hard drive. When I came home with the new one, the initial start-up was easy, but tweaking it like to what I am familiar with without having all that "fluff" to learn all over new, took some time. Two days later and I feel good about it. The best part is my pictures look SO MUCH BETTER on this new laptop and guess what? - so do yours. You people take really great pictures!
This lasted all of about one minute.
I plan to go for a hike today and get some new fodder for the blog.
