I'm Back, Baby!


...sort of.

My beloved old Windows 7 computer with all the old programs I love and know how to use...except a newer version of Microsoft Word that I've hated since the very day it was installed...crashed last week.  Being a glass half empty sort of person I assumed it was done for and was bracing myself for another "upgrade" that I'd really hate, and...

 


I say "I'm back...sort of" because it's taken forever to get this tiny post put together (and I haven't even tried to upload it yet).  I don't think it's a computer issue as it's been professionally repaired and tuned up, but more an AT&T internet (that I've also hated since pretty much the very day it was installed) issue.  I'm not even going to mention the new Blogger format.

I'm sounding so curmudgeonly that I almost decided to change the title of this post to "If It Ain't Broke Don't Fix It!", but I'm just so happy to have my old computer back that I'm going to focus on that part and keep "I'm Back, Baby!"

I hear you! They had to pry my Windows XP out of my clutching fingers.

I made the mistake of upgrading my Mac program to the new Catalina version and lost a lot of photos and other stuff I use. I'll never upgrade again. Glad you're back. Beautiful photo!

I'm glad it was "just" computer issues (better than creature crises!).

My blog wanted to give itself a 'facelift' the other day and it took me at least an hour to get it back to where I could find what I wanted and use it. I am definitely with the 'If it ain't broke...' vibe! Just leave me be, it is working.

We've used Linux as our operating system for years since my husband is anti-Microsoft anything (though we did have a drive that had Win XP on it for the few banking things that demanded it). I also have a new iPad Air which I love since it talks with my iPhone; I switched from a Droid phone when it black-screened and never revived, since most of my family members have iPhones.

I can feel your pain, when my computer died using Vista my new computer is Window 10... I hate it, I can't even stop it from upgrading more than 30 days! This is ridiculous you paid for the darn thing and you can't even use it as you like!

Glad that you're only experiencing computer issues, but boy I do hate "upgrades". Whomever thought they were a good thing...

Welcome back! And, doesn't it make you sorta reminisce about the good ol' days of "Newsletters" from your favorite shops/companies?

welcome back! When my pc bit the dust I switched to a mac and the learning curve was mighty! I am happy though that I did the switch and dread when I have to buy another computer again in the future.
