Computer Woes!

Amazing how a sick computer can eat up your time! My computer just kept getting worse and worse until I finally tried installing a new hard drive and putting Linux on it. That sort of worked! "Sort of" being the operative words there.

Then, we thought it might be a memory problem, but it could also be the motherboard. I didn't see putting money into buying memory, only to discover that the problem was the motherboard all along, so I decided to retire it and get a new one.

I've had the new computer for a week now.  It came with Windows 8 installed.  Although it had been recommended to me to go with Windows 7, I didn't seem to have a choice.  I updated a couple of days ago to 8.1 after doing some research to decide if it would be worth it.  So far, it's okay, but there has been a learning curve.  At least, there are improvements over Windows 8.

This afternoon, I've been checking out the Facebook app.  It looks a lot like the one on my Android phone, the Samsung Note 2.  It's okay, too, but I don't know if I will use it exclusively.  These apps seem to be a bit limited in their functionality, especially when it comes to something like a business page.  We shall see how it goes!

Meanwhile, I have some new ideas and some new equipment to play with!  More fun things to come!
