Tech-manic day...

Good lord and gravy does the Kougaress need a cowboy, given she worked dang hard today...

Sunday into Monday purrs, my crazy-leg dancing KitKats... a few days in, Autumn is lovely on the tame prairie... yet, there is an odd feel to the weather as in nothing feels in sync... but then, these days most everything feels out of sync.

Tech-manic day... Whew! What a long tech-manic and accomplishing day for this Big Cat. Okay, it is really low, outdated tech compared to lots of folks. However, the Kougaress purchased a refurbished computer tower as a backup in case her other one goes on the fritz... well, at first the modem wouldn’t work correctly... than after attempting to install an external modem, which didn’t work, the original internal modem did work... maybe because drivers were installed... but that’s a tech-dummy guess...

Anyhoo and boo! Oh, yes, the Halloween mood is asserting itself already... the Kougaress spent most of the day uploading updates, installing the Firefox browser, messing with Media Player to get it the way this Big Cat likes it, and making adjustments... the screen display didn’t fit the parameters of the monitor... however, after looking for info on the web, which wasn’t exactly the right answer, the Kougaress found the way to resize so there wasn’t an inch dark strip on one side.

Yeah, this is so not exciting to most of you, however, the Kougaress worked really hard to get as far as she did... now, she has to solve the problem of getting WordPerfect somehow, at hopefully the least expensive way she can... so she can actually use it to write on... double argh, triple argh...

Authoress news and mews ~

Decisions... authorly decisions... so many need to be made right now, and the Kougar needs to decide what direction to go... meanwhile her WIP, White Fang, Ace Reporter, seems to be progressing nicely.

Big Cat by-the-numbers ~

And, May you live the dreams of your heart, not in interesting times...

Out of sync kisses from the Kougar...

I concur...I'd take some time admiring that cowboy, up close and personal like!

Gah...those tech-manic days are exhausting! Good luck finding/getting WordPerfect back! :)

Up close and personal would be a dream come true, right now!

Yeah, I can't tell who the reliable 'less expensive' dealers are, so I can install on the refurb computer tower, since my original version was only for my Dell tower.
