Want and Need situation!!!
A little want and need situation arose yesterday which has left me stressed today!! Let me explain.
I have been an apple mac user for many years and 18 months ago my DS bought me a super duper iMac which is the bees knees so I really don't NEED another computer.... but
I have been WANTING a laptop for some time so that I can keep up with all that is going on without having to shut myself away in my craft room. I didn't want to revert back to a PC and mac laptops are far to expensive for me to warrant buying one .
The company I work for sell all laptops onto staff when the 3 year leases are up, Geneen in marketing has a mac laptop one of the few that are used in our company and it was coming up for renewal and it was being sold on at a very good price. I was hoping Geneen would want to buy it because first option is always given to the user, but she didn't want it so it was mine if I decided to go ahead.
Well never being one to pass up a bargain I went for it!!!
Now normally it is just a case of putting a firewire cable from one mac to the other and transferring all the info which is what I did this afternoon but for some reason it only transferred some of the info onto the laptop.
I am OK when everything goes to plan with this computer stuff but when it goes "tits up" as they say then that's me done!!!
Luckily I have a very good friend who is an apple mac expert and he is going to sort it out for me tomorrow, but in the meantime this has completely killed my Mo Jo!!!!. I did make one card today but I am really not sure about it!!!
Thanks for listening to my tale of woe and if you have made it to the end well done I would have given up half way through LOL
