Fragmented Friday

October 19, 2012


I’ve been awake since 5am this morning. I wish I could say I saw a beautiful sunrise, but the skies are quite gray and gloomy today. Ah, such is autumn in Upstate New York… I haven’t had to turn on the heater full-time yet. We don’t even have the living room rigged up for heat […]

Out Sick

January 17, 2012

Comments Off on This is Totally Cool– But Does It Really Work?!

I was surfing new gadgets online at Buy.com’s weekly sale page. Apparently, this week is Microsoft Hardware Sale week. I like Microsoft mouses (I wear out mouses rather quickly, because I work online all day; Microsoft mouses are the only mouses that withstand my grueling schedule). I saw this new totally COOL mouse gadget. What […]

Oh my word, I have been to THOUSANDS of computer and technical sites last night and today. My hard drive died– I say that so easily– it only took me about 10 hours to finally make that determination. :-p I love computers…most of the time. Computers are like that girl with the curl in the […]
