Hello I i made it.Thank u Colleen and Brian lol for your help
Well I finally made it here, but too late as usual. So, sorry I missed you Colleen, better luck next time.
Lloyd, tough luck having you computer crash. I’m a big fan of Apple, as is my daughter Fran. Most proffessionals (doctors, tv types etc.,) seem to like Apple laptops. I’m saving up for one as they’re hellish expensive.
Since we can't go out, the phrase will have to be "Over and In."
Nice to c u 2.
Lol. Speaking of teaching, I'm going to have to sign off to get ready for my 4:00 class. Lloyd, it's been nice chatting with you both here and on Zoom!
Remumber weeer not korkting spg on this forim.j
When computers first came out, my sister's roommate was doing some programming (back when mortals could actually program) and the only thing I remember from her experience was the phrase "TO DUMP". That was it! Then the screen went blank.
George is a pretty talented programmer. It's one of the reasons he remains resistant to Apple.
They say that it's actually a good strategy to destroy a first draft just so that you don't become to married to the way the words came out the first time. But, that doesn't take into account the loss of those perfect sentences that you never manage to get quite right the next time around.
too married. Some English teacher, eh?
It's my hubby's birthday this coming Sunday. I'm going to try very hard not to miss that one. It would be kind of awkward since we're locked down in this house together!
I can remember typing out a whole sermon and losing it. I can only assume the second draft was better than the one that was illuminating cyberfolks or who ever consumes in cyberpace.
I'm a disaster at remembering birthdays at the best of times. I once got myself into deep trouble with my mom for calling on her birthday just by chance but then not being smart enough to cover up that I hadn't actually realized it was her birthday.
Speaking of paper . Fortunately I do keep a paper copy of my calendar and I have the copies of those calendars back to 2006!. I found the one from 2017 had all the birthdays marked on it. And now they are on the new program with list of birthday by month on a WORD document.
I remember even when it was still limited to word-processing documents, that terrible experience of putting the finishing touches on an essay and then suddenly finding it no longer there. My dad's a statistician, and so we had a household "computing device" in the early days. And no, I don't mean an abacus!
Actually I like the new look better and I did get rid of a bunch of crap in the erasure. But it totally eliminated my calendar of upcoming events, most of which have been eliminated by Covid-19. But the major problems was my record of birthdays. All gone, and not backed up since it was a Yahoo calendar and not Microsoft. I think the whole crash was a Windows gimmick to make me stop using non-microsoft programs.
This is what always makes me nervous about how much we entrust to digital and online formats. I know that paper copies can be misplaced or destroyed as well, but it makes me feel so powerless when a crash or glitch opens up a black hole into the ethernet.
Yes and I wrote a response, but it wasn't on this place. Now I'm here. My major news of the week was that on last Friday, I had a complete computer crash, which involved Windows 10 and the loss of all of my non-Microsoft programs. They claimed that I need to delete everything (my data would be preserved (NOT). and it only took 19 hours to reconnect. And I'm still finding missing stuff.
Lloyd was just helping me with a Zoom experiment. I left him in that space to come and check in here. Now, I'm wondering if he'll wander down the metaphorical hallway to show up in this room.
