Feeling A Bit Like Woody....

Post by Logi on Fri Apr 04, 2014 7:16 pm

Know how Woody's feeling with computers, just bought a new lappy with Windaes 8 fitted. Fuck me gently  Mad Took me ages to get ma head round 7.


Though I have a theory.
Computers were invented by geeky wee pricks. This is their revenge for getting the shit kicked outta them at school.

Update to 8.1 before you throw it out of the window(s). Or set it back to 7. Or try Ubuntu. Windows 8 is the new Vista (or ME, whichever you liked least)

Yeah it took me a bit of getting used to and i still dont feel fully at home with it. One handy tip is when you are on the app screen just start typing what you are looking for (for example "notepad") and it searches for it Smile

The Windows setup on my Laptop is so old its still got a winder handle on it. lol! 

Seriously, it is a Sony VAIO with 11-4" screen. It has 4GB of ram as opposed to 1GB of the 10" laptops. I hardly use it these days except for invoices on PayPal.

I use two Cheap Chinese Galaxy Note ll Android clone phone with 5-5" screen ( getting short sighted with old age ) and two simcards in each . As you have probably gathered I don't usually buy cheap goods because I have found that if you buy good quality goods its lasts so much better. Fortunately I bought three of them in case one died which one has already. So won't be buying any more after I get a refund from Amazon as the sellers haven't responded to me or Amazon.

That being said that I use them all the time for emailing and texting and sometimes for PayPal in the day if someone wants parts sent out urgently then I just send a cash request. It still shows up obviously but no record of what was sent to whom.

I love the modern technology but can't always master it as most of you know. Good job I can laugh about it too eh ??

Windows 8. I've had a play on it. and i don't like it
It could be ok if you're on a touch screen. otherwise its awful.
Ah windows 98. stopped using that in about 2005. And then ran with XP uptil about 09. when i got my hands on windows 7. And after a lot of cursing got my head round it

I find 7 is pretty bullet-proof (64 bit pro), but then have an old lappy running XP very happily. Still miss the good old days of DOS though!
