bug, computer bugs

I am finally back on-line. I have been off-line for almost a week. The computer monitor failed. Plus my computer had slowed down to a crawl. I mean really really slow. I checked about installing more RAM memory to speed things up but they said that more memory couldn't be installed because all of the memory card slots inside the computer had been used up. The computer had 1 gigabyte of RAM. So it was time to get a new computer with lots of RAM memory and speed. I checked all of the stores and found the best deal at Office Depot. The new computer has 8 gigabytes of RAM memory and is expandable to 16 gigabytes of RAM memory. The hard drive is 1000 gigabytes of memory. The computer processor is a 64 bit quad core processor. To make a long story short, this computer is at the cutting edge of the high-end computers and is extremely fast. The only drawback is that the operating system is Windows 7 which is causing me to tear my hair out. I liked my old Windows XP software much better. We had a technician from Brighthouse come out and connect the computer up to the Brighthouse internet late this afternoon and so I am back on-line and can start doing my blogs again. But I am unable to send email with the Microsoft Outlook. I can receive email, I just can't send or reply. These are the kind of "bugs" that you always get with a new computer. They will get worked out in time. The monitor is bigger than what I normally like and I have to turn my head from left to right and back again to view the whole screen. I think that it is a 20" monitor. But I do like the speed of the computer though. Take care and enjoy all that life has to offer. Lew

I'm glad you are back. In time you will be a pro again. You will get to see the picture of the pork roast I sent today. Plus, all the sea pictures. I hope the rain made the flowers grow in your yard and you will have a lovely spring garden.
