Susan Techie

Can I just say I am on techie binge. Please understand I am not a computer person per se! They make nuts sometimes - but I am learning. I recently bought a Dell Lap top and I am getting along with it smashingly! I do not understand all of its weirdness - but we have reached an agreement of sorts and we have promised to work out our differences.

I have redesigned my Blog and love it - I even added widgets or gadgets or whatever. I can kinda sorta tinker with HTML - I made my pet Moji - say my name instead of my email address. Please note - in my previous post I embedded a YouTube clip (go me!)

Recently, I worked to set up a new computer at my pro bono job - and i PING'd the printer. We switched from static IP addressing to something else. (I am not high and tight on my techie speak yet... but it is coming!)

I also fixed my invisible counter - so that I am excluded from the count. See I thought there were alot more readers - well know - I was just there alot the other day! Yikes!

This past week I bought an Ipod. The tiny little Shuffle! I love it! I got the purple one - I am a girly girl after all! It is the size of a hair barrette. I can easily deal with it while I run. I had been using my cell phone - which is bulky and was not the best option.

I know I need to embrace the technology around me and the fact is I can do it - I have just not been willing to do so until now. Maybe it is a function of having more time and maybe it now I need to. I need to be able to function and market myself in the virtual world. A world where my clients do not know me - they now me via email and chat. They do not meet me for coffee - we met online.

In any event - I am a techno girl and I am hip to the 21st Century - now if I could jut figure out where is my abacus and my pencil?

Welcome with open arms, Susan. Nothing I love more than the Blackberry.
