Computer is fixed!

Saturday, November 08, 2014

One thing that I love about living in Africa is that once you have good contacts they will take good care of you. We just relayed our problem, opened up the back of the laptop and took out a barrette. It had died on me. After all my frustrations in the last couple of days, this has relieved me immensely. I love my tablet, but I do not like doing emails and such on it. Way too slow!

    So glad you got it fixed :0) I understand completely. I don't have internet and computer, I do all my online stuff on smartphone. It's doable but challenging. emoticon

Computer problems!

Saturday, November 08, 2014

My computer is down . I will be going to the technician this afternoon but am unsure as to how long this will take. I am presently using my tablet but compared to a computer, it is very slow. Please bear with me... emoticon Lise

    Our new tablet disappointed me too. Not good at all for sparking for sure.

No connection at all...

Friday, June 06, 2014

These last couple of days were very trying for both my husband and me. WE HAD NO CONNECTION AT ALL! Anyway, with my husband's insistence, a technician did come over and found out that our wire was cut outside (we do live close to the ocean so things do get rusty more quickly). He fixed it in a jiffy and we now have a connection to the server. I still have issues because I am far away from the modem so the technician said he will come over to fix me up. I am looking forward to this immensely.

Glad to be back online!

emoticon Lise

    I can understand your frustration. I have a fixed-line Internet, and a mobile Internet as a backup. I realized some time ago that this is important for me, in a similar way like electricity.

Connection problems...

Monday, May 12, 2014

Of late I have been having connection problems with our server. Therefore, if you do not hear from me, this is the reason why. It seems as though I get an excellent connection when everyone is sleeping -- not exactly convenient for me though! Anyway, the only time I will do this during the night is when I have insomnia and I do try not to be an insomniac as it ruins the next day, not only for me but for those around me!! I get kind of ....... when I'm tired.

    If you have any in the future, unplug your model from the cable for about a minute, fixes it all the time. If not call them. I have been having problems too lately, I don't know what the heck is going on these days! Just all seems to be slowing down and we have high speed DSL! emoticon

    I know the feeling.... For the last several months my internet quits working on a Friday and starts again on Monday! Thank goodness it hasn't done it in the last two weekends.

    Hubby says its because everyone is using the internet at that time!

He hasn't convinced me yet!!! He even admits he knows less about the internet than I. [Poor guy]!

I think it's just bad service.

As I always say, 'That's my story, and, I'm sticking with it!

Hugs,
Janet

Wow, what a month!

Saturday, March 29, 2014

Since joining Spark People nearly 5 years ago, March 2014 was my slowest month. To date, I have only 615 fitness minutes (due to no time available to me, I may have forgotten to insert my information) for this month. April is just around the corner and it will be a better month. I did gain some weight again, but surprisingly, it wasn't that much.

For those who responded to my blogs regarding my husband I wish to thank you for your thoughtfulness. He is up and about and is basically back to normal now. This morning, he did some leg exercises because he laid and sat down for a month or so. It's great having him doing his thing again.

emoticon to you all. Lise

    Lise, I'm so glad things are looking up for you and your DH. Praise the Lord that he is able to get up now and is healing, and I pray for renewed strength, including in his legs.

Happy April (in advance).

    Glad you are both home and he is feeling better - there are days, weeks, and sometimes months or even years when the challenges that surround us simply require that we simply HANG ON - until the storms pass and then pick ourselves back up and move forward again recovering the lost gains and making progress. I wish you an awesome APRIL
