computers! Great when they work …

I’ve had about a week of problems with my laptop which all started when I found out that I was going to be charged £6 a day whilst on guide dog training for Internet use. not a chance! So we got hold of an orange dongle and an Internet package for the month.

Dongle installed fine on my partner’s netbook but not on this laptop. After a lot of faffing about, the laptop was taken to a friend who has forgotten more than we’ll ever know about computers! he got it working but it meant resetting all my ports. So, we got the machine home and it wouldn’t connect wirelessly.

Tonight after suggestions from friend which were carried out by partner, laptop is up and running again, dongle and wireless working.

Good old Windows. don’t we just love it! Phew!

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.
