So here it is: the new computer! This time it’s a real laptop. I’ve been using a chromebook which is OK, but has major limitations, like it’s nearly impossible to print with it.
It was time to upgrade. This one is pretty sweet, despite learning Windows 10. Ugh. That has been a nuisance, but mostly because I am a creature of habit.
Currently I have a Comcast tech rewiring the cable. Yes, I know: I am a traitor again. Back to the evil empire. But the Verizon data plan, even with 18g
of data, is somehow disappearing. The whole router thing just didn’t work — I could never watch movies or YouTube without worrying about chewing up data. It got too annoying. My life can be too stressful enough now at work (sadly), if I want to watch a movie, then I don’t want to worry about data for goodness sake!
I’m free now. Honestly, I have no love for any of these huge companies. But every once in a while you may get a decent tech to the house (my guy was a lovely man here from Haiti), or less likely, a competent representative on the phone. When you do though, it’s like a breath of fresh air. They really seem to care and speak like real humans, not computer drones. It makes me utterly grateful.
So now I will relax, watch what I want, listen to music and no more counting gigabytes. Just gonna chill.
