A couple of days ago, I ordered a new hard drive. I’ve had this one since 2004. I decided to add a new graphics program and my system didn’t meet even the most minimum requirements. The response time has been slow (I may have a lot of junk on the computer) — have I talked you into agreeing that I needed a new CPU? Well, regardless, I did it. The new Dell has 4 G of RAM so I can manipulate photos and install the new graphics design program, it has a 320 G hard drive. I wonder if I can fill that up before I am too old to play on the computer? It has a huge video card and a super fast processor. I am so excited — it will arrive on Monday.
While I was being revolutionary, I downloaded Firefox and deleted Internet Explorer. I’ve been an IE user since there has been a Worldwide Web. The new Version 8 was the last straw, however. It slowed everything down to a crawl; when I tried to open a file in “My Favorites”, IE proceeded to download every site in that file at the same time. THAT did not make the computer happy. So — it’s a new day in Penni’s computer world. I have Firefox, I have a new hard drive on its way. It’s a revolution!
