Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Feels Like Monday

Don’t ask me why, but it feels more like a Monday to me. (Yuck)

Sometimes, you just have to laugh..

Good advice!

“Run away, Forrest, run away!”

Your “payroll” is in the truck, ready for delivery..

(Yes. That flick is still on my Top Movies Of All Time List.)

There comes a point where, you have to decide. Is it worth repairing, or am I better off getting a new one? (And no, just because we live in a “disposable society” does not mean the answer is always “buy new” — despite what the Marketing Specialists would have you believe.)

Well, if that is case for you with a laptop or Desktop PC (or you are otherwise just considering an “upgrade” to new) I think it worth considering that Windows 8 machines are now starting to appear in stores.. and you don’t want them IMHO. If it’s time for a new unit, grab a Win 7 machine while you still can. (Don’t just take my word for it: see: You’ll Hate Windows 8 (Hey! That rhymes!)

You aren’t ready for Windows 8. It’s coming anyway, a slow-moving freight train of massive change and dread, an enormous update that will sow turmoil in the lives of millions of people around the world.Read more..

Well, as I said, it feels like a Monday here, and there’s much to do.

    • br niels,
      Hey, it’s good to see your name here again.

      You know, I am not sure which bumpersticker slogan fits best here: “There’s one in every crowd”, or “Different strokes for different folks”.
      I’ll take a Sunday afternoon over a Monday, well, any day of the week!

      • paul.

        thank you.

        surely I’m in a different position than you are.

        I used to work in the computer business, but I got fired a couple of years ago.

        Now I’m selling tickets for the ferrys between denmark and sweden and when I get off I’m off.
        No things to worry about till tomorrow.
        And I work weekends, weekdays, morning, evening and night, but not very many days a month.
        So it’s a nice and easy life now.
        So sundays – for me – are like alle other days.

        • dkdude,
          Well, yes. I only take Sundays as my “day off” so they are kinda special to me. (Even though “day off” in reality means “work around the house”.)

          … a “nice and easy life” sounds darned good. I am glad to hear you have it! (And.. it sounds “simple” [aka “not ratrace” or “climbing the corporate ladder”] and I like simple.)
