It is a net book! 32 bit! One gig of memory!Windows 7! Microsoft Office Starter! And more bells and whistles than will ever be needed! A true technological marvel!
Just the thing to relieve my boredom, as I drift through the doldrums of summer. There can be no finer summer entertainment than aggravating and agitating the buzzards circling out there in cyberspace.
I head for my favorite playground, The Smoking Musket. More precisely, The Smoking Musket editor. Ready, and armed with the latest in modern technology, I prepare to metaphorically shoot down those high and mighty cyberistic vultures! But, Lo and Behold! There appears to be a compatibility problem. As I toggle between HTML and visual modes, the jump does not appear in visual and also the cursor. Damn! It does not work. (Another example of Microsoft's disdain for backward compatibility!)
For hours I try the usual fixes and even some of the more unusual ones. Just as I decide to give that shiny black wonder an attitude adjustment, by firmly bouncing it off the floor, I have an epiphany!
"Perhaps some old buzzard hovering out there has already found the meat of my endeavors and is willing to share".
Now I am working on my old cracked laptop, ( already the recipient of an attitude adjustment). Its running Windows XP. The editor works slicker than slick, as long as I correct the electrical short in the laptop by keeping my thumb firmly pressed against the side. Have you ever seen someone try to use a shift key with one hand? It's not a pretty sight!
If any of you old buzzards can help, please hurry! My thumb has a helluva cramp!
