Here’s The Scoop … It Takes Two Hands … Day 2 In Chicago …

ADVANCES  IN TECHNOLOGY ? ……

Dear Readers …  Long ago my husband told me the story about his grandfather who had just received one of the first new digital watch….upon receiving the gift he said now he had to use 2 hands to see what time it was!… Thus, it is the same situation and then some (to put it mildly) with upgrading to a new laptop and and learning new gadgets that protrude from the “ports”…the “hub”… such as external drives named “taxi” and the backup actually named “backup”… All I am told to make my life easier and portable!…This  definitely takes more than 2 hands!… It takes many more steps than ever before … It involves re-steps… and set-up… Then the re-set-up because a step was missed?… I am informed these various appendages attached to the laptop are not in “sync”… or in “lay-man” terms… what should appear does not!… ARGHHHH…… Send in a tech-savvy daughter from down the hall…who then zips from one thing to another with the greatest of ease …So confident and cocky is she … and way too fast … which leaves this writer not only in the dust..but thoroughly overwhelmed and further confused that she might be undoing something the tech in Florida did and could she actually be adding in yet another step to the ever growing list of steps I now need to remember!… (She assures me she has not!)… Maybe, a visit from a young tech savvy 20-something or younger is needed in LBTS rather than from Granicus …(prev. post) …From a quick look while up and running in that brief period of actual Verizon usage …it does now appear that the hours look correct for both the March 15, 2010 swearing in and the March 17, 2010 organizational meeting …..But, with the status quo of computer snafus over the last few days…I do not dare to try the video to check if it is correct… (But that and the back-up for the  March 23rd Commission meeting are slated for next….. “Technology”  willing…)

Needless to say, Dear Readers,  …. after taking more deep breaths than I can count in an attempt to stop saying out loud the #!# words I am definitely muttering under my breath …I too understand there is something wrong when it now takes 2 hands to tell the time of day!…

And how are things In LBTS?….

more to come….
