I’ve been having computer problems the last few weeks. I won’t bore you with the details, but I’m sure you understand the frustration. And yes, even techy type people with a huge amount of IT experience have computer issues – the easier Microsoft makes it for a typical user the harder they make it to diagnose the issues.
Anyway, that is at home. Things are different at work. I just received a new laptop. First, the utility they use to get the data off of the old computer is much better than it was even a couple of years ago. All of my settings are the same, all of the shortcuts work in all three browsers and all of the apps are set up correctly. It looks and works just like my old. Only faster. A lot faster. Instead of the 15 minutes to come back up after connecting to my VPN it took less than two minutes. It just worked. Wow. A huge time saver.
So although my computer at home has a few issues (it crashes every time McAfee does anything and iTunes won’t load no matter how many on-line instructions to fix the issue I’ve been through), my work computer is great.
So that’s my smile for this week, a new work computer.
