They also gave us a mini-laptop computer! What a surprise!
I have spent much of this week getting to know my new toy. It will be used only for wireless hook up and will be perfect to take on the road, or plane, or where ever we're taking off to.
First we had to get all the settings right, and then we were in the email business. Important contacts have been entered.
Internet is activated and my blog is bookmarked. Through much trial and error, I have learned how to view photos from my camera flash card.
I can view camera videos, too.
I got a little scared when this process went awry and my little computer locked up, but all was rescued. I must say that the directions that come with technology are mostly worthless. They tell you too much or too little and never in plain speak.
Today I tried to see if I could download photos from the flash card to my blog, and I can! It takes longer and the photos are harder to locate, but it is doable! I don't think I would be adding as many photos as I do with my PC, but one or two would be easy.
I haven't figured out how to download and store photos in the photo program. If anyone knows how, let me know. The capacity is limited, of course.
Last Friday as we were opening gifts, I was sitting on the couch and 3-year-old Irene plopped down beside me for a hug. I said,"Look at my new baby computer. Isn't it cute?"
Irene responded, "Oh, it is cute. It should have a girl's name!"
And so it does. Meet Suzie.
Editor's Note: Since posting I have learned how to copy photos and videos from my camera flash card to Suzie's hard drive. I think we're now fully in business!
