Ain’t Technology Grand?
By Suzie Tyler
Technology is great when it works, but when it doesn’t, it’s chaos. In the 50s and 60s, we did not have computers, cell phones, or the Internet. Today, we old people have to learn something about changing technology every day, but it builds new brain cells!
I’ve always had a curiosity about things. My little Mamaw would tell me that “curiosity killed the cat,” but they had nine, so I wasn’t deterred! I have gotten an education in the past few weeks on Microsoft. In January, I had an automatic update. My computer life has not been the same since.
I’ve been rewriting one of my books. I had it completed but had a hard copy. I saved it to my desktop. Not smart, I found out from my personal NYC geek squad member. The update wiped out all documents on my desktop. Not to fear, I had a printed copy and a partial file in my trash bin. I rebuilt my document, then three weeks ago, guess what! Another Update!
I was not a happy camper. It took me two weeks to find where the update saved it! A good thing my thoughts are secret because I have not had nice thoughts about the owner of Microsoft.
Now I know why people have changed to Apple!
Have a good month, and remember, “learn something new every day.”
