I was really excited when I ordered my new computer, and had planned carefully to have it arrive while my son was home so he could help me in the teething stages - yes, I knew that it would be a bit of a challenge for me. I love technology and the way it connects me to a whole unimagined world...but I do find that the maze of computer speak just baffles me!
So all was well initially - Dell and me were making friends nicely and playing well. Then she refused to read my camera driver...for no reason, she just dug her toes in and said she couldn't see it, even though it was plugged into her side with the appropriate umbilicus. And I got cross.
I imported all kinds of special software to try to please her but she still stayed blindfolded to Canon, who is the nicest little camera you could find. And she's not that old, really...
So eventually, with my dear son's help, I purchased a mediator - a card reader who will take Canon's card and deliver it to Dell. What a long and frustrating story this has been.
So now all I have to do is get Blogger to behave - does anyone know of a mediator that will work with him? Blogger MUST be male, surely? He is just so inflexible...
