I know I’ve had pictures of her on the blog before, but this was strivingcynic cat’s big sister. A very sweet girl!
As I’ve probably also mentioned before, the computer I use for blogging has been frustrating me due to its “slowness.” When I got it, I thought it was the best thing ever…it replaced a 6 year-old computer that just could not handle what I needed to use it for. But, time passed and suddenly, another 6 years were gone…and I realized my technique of turning on the computer and going away for 15 minutes so I wouldn’t get frustrated while it booted up was no longer working for me. Neither was the freezing/slow loading. 6 years is apparently all I can tolerate as far as computer ages go…which means this is the first post on my new computer.
[I should admit here that mr. strivingcynic put me on a more proactive path than the one I was on. The one where I sat and pouted and whined about how slow things were. Not only did he point me in the direction of some good choices, but helped me get set up (left to my own devices, this would still be sitting in the box till the weekend)]
One thing I realized with the previous computer was that all the photos I was now taking were going to take up too much space. So, I got an external hard drive and moved a lot of photos there. Every once in a while, I’d want to use a photo that I knew was on the hard drive…since I didn’t keep it connected…well, I wasn’t going to do the waiting to connect it, so I couldn’t use the photo.
Now, I’ve got a new setup and will stay connected to the hard drive, which means I have access to the vault. So, I can go back and display pictures like this one:
So, I’m excited that I get to work on my blogs and look at yours in a less-frustrating setting!
Do you have a set time period for exchanging/upgrading technologies? How do you decide what to choose?
