Well now. The Bag Lady has had a fine time with her computer in the last little while. The high-speed connection was installed with very little trouble (the fellow who installed it had a wee problem getting the signal, until he went outside and moved his ladder from in front of the thingy he installed on her roof!)
Once the high-speed connection was installed and operational, the Bag Lady decided she needed to do a little tweaking. Some of you may recall that she had her computer decimated by the repair shop not that long ago, so she has been having all kinds of fun, downloading a word processing package, and switching over to Mozilla from what she was using previously. Of course, it would help her immensely if she had any freakin' idea what she was doing, but whatever. She has been sorting out her bookmarks and skipping around from blog to blog. Whoosh!
Oh, and for those of you who are obsessed with checking your stats, apparently the Bag Lady moved to Calgary when she got high-speed. She just wishes she could get a food delivery from a restaurant, now that she is supposedly living in the Big City. Bastards still won't deliver! They tell her they can't keep the food warm for the 9 hours it would take them to get it here. What's with that?
On the subject of stats, the Bag Lady is really looking forward to checking the map in sitemeter. She has never been able to do that before, and apparently needs to download something in order to do it, but she will get to that soon. She loves checking her stats. Remember when she posted about things setting off the music in her head? She has several readers in Houston, Texas, so every time she looks at her sitemeter, that song sticks in her head (Houston means that I'm one day closer to you...) Sh*t, just did it to myself again by telling you!
The Bag Lady is off to do some shopping today (even though the nearest city to her doesn't offer anything close to the choices that Calgary would!). She will have to tear herself away from all the fun she's having with her high-speed connection. She also hopes to be back to normal blogging next week. She writes her blog posts in her word-processing program, and has been without one since she got her computer back from the repair-shop-from-hell, so has had to curtail her customary spouting off. Be warned, regular programming will resume next week, so be prepared for spouting. Or at least; dribbling.
And, last but not least, the Bag Lady simply had to try downloading a photo to see how long it would take! This was taken a couple days ago of the Bag Lady's front lawn.
And it took about 20 seconds to load, instead of the 3 or 4 minutes she was accustomed to!!! Woohoo!!!
Have a great weekend!
