why I disapeared and how I got back

Last Update: August 13, 2019

Haven't been around.. My Windows 8.1 laptop has been running slower and slower and is now down to about five percent of normal speed.

At the same time I was helping my husband get ready to display his wood sculptures at an art show in Colorado. He got off okay, had an interesting if not enriching time, and will be home shortly. I kept nursing my laptop along, will take it to our wizard repair guy tomorrow, but i was doing hubby's gmail while he traveled.

Finally I tried my old iPad which is seven years old and so antique I cannot update its operating. System any more.

Bingo! I am back online at a reasonable speed. Whew!

A good updated computer is most of the battle.

I was starting to wonder where you were. Hope your wizard can get your poor wee laptop up to speed again. Gene

Thanks Gene! I expect he can as that is why we call him a wizard.

Good to have you back
Think it might be time for a shiny new Mac 😁
I had similar problems with my iPad in which it would’nt do everything I needed. I know have a fab new Mac book and what a difference... xx

I am really a windows person since the very beginning. My old mac book pro is now used for an excellent book formatting program called Vellum, which does both ebooks and print editions.

I was wondering where you were. Aha, that explains. I wrote a few blogs in your absence about repairing my laptop. MacBook Pro. Finally, Im back, laptop repaired done by myself. I had other devices such as my iPhone and newer iPad Pro. I found great deals on Amazon thats how I got my devices. Taking it to a shop is costly. I didnt have the funds for that so I opted to buy parts all from Amazon and installed myself and now it works. Less than $200 in all.

Good for you! My hands are not gifted, in other words I am a klutz. Luckily our wizard is a friend.

Hi Rosana, great to see you are back "at a reasonable speed" LOL
Maybe the time is approaching when you need to update Windows.
