I’m switching to a new operating system, and a new computer with system 7. Oh, joy. Jim is helping me and encouraging me by saying, you’ll love system 7 over Vista when you get used to it.
This morning, my new operating system allows pop up videos to interfere with my blog, right in my face, will not click off immediately, though it has an off X button. It won’t respond until after you’ve hit it two or three times.
Jim spent about five hours yesterday getting my programs to behave. Nice. Now I can open old documents on my new computer. But, it won’t recognize my old documents in the same form.
