New Laptop

I'm writing this post on my new laptop. Zoe's beloved has just spent the best part of two hours fixing it up for me. The time spent also included a bit of a tutorial.

D: And this is how you switch it on.

N: Oh yes.

D: And this is how you switch it off.

N: Riiight.

There was other really complicated stuff but I like to think I've grasped the basics.

The machine is an Acer 5102WLMi.

I'm on a steep learning curve here because I've started the course where I'm supposed to end up as an ICT tutor. Luckily I have the perfect guinea pig to practice on - Bert. He hasn't a notion about computers and I'm going to teach him. This time next year he'll have his own blog. Won't that be good?

Nelly's Blog v.s. Bert's Blog: which should prove there are two sides to every story!

Nelly said...

Bert's would probably be just be about the tin whistling and woodwork.

Manuel,
Maybe Nelly is confused and has drunk too much wine and the laptop she refers to is Bert.Two words that are very similar in the English/Irish/Cullybackey language are "laptop" and "lapdancer" and this may confuse her (Bless her :-) If Bert starts his blog I'm sure we'll find out how great a lapdancer he is.
I'm not sure if she's doing a course on how to teach lapdancing to men. Nelly if you are I need a refresher course on this to keep the Mrs fully satisfied.
