More laptop stuff

This is so cool. I've been playing around with the new version of Office that I got with the computer most of the afternoon. I haven't done any quilting or piecing at all.

There's a Deli/coffee shop/bar in our apartment building so Keith and I decided to bring the computers down and have some coffee. I high-jacked someone's wireless earlier today but couldn't get on this afternoon. I guess I'll have to get a router and set it up on Monday. Debbie just did it with her Comcast Internet and assures me it's easy! For this weekend I'll just have to use the desktop or drop in for some coffee.

A neat feature of the laptop is a built in webcam. Here's a photo of me sitting in the coffee shop. I know it's not the most flattering picture but it's fun! (Can you see Keith in the background getting my coffee?)

That's neat. I set up the wireless router while I was at mom's and if I can do it . . anyone can do it! Good luck!

That would be so nice not to be tied to a desk! Have fun with it!

I told laptops were fun and addicting. Setting up a wireless network is easy. If you can quilt (and I know you can) you can set up the network.

Oh Mary - it DOES look toooo enticing!!! My gosh, I am addicted to book buying, fabric buying, quilting, snacking, blogging, surfing, I don't think I can handle any more clever stuff - and even a web cam to boot??? -- arrrrrghhhh, I MUST resist this tempting technology!

What fun! I've been toying with the idea of a laptop - but I'm so "technology challenged" - maybe not! LOL

Oh, by the way, great picture!

That's a very pretty picture of you, Mary! Imagine the new laptop having a webcam, what fun. Don't forget about quilting, though :-)).

It's almost like an "Oxymoron" quilting and laptop fascination. But the two are melding together...Have fun...
