Okay, so even though I’ve devoted this week to all things techy – which in my world means cool websites, and not actual gadgets and stuff – I have found myself frustrated and blocked by the things that should be making my life easier. Here are a few examples:
1. My beautiful, weightless, soundless, heatless MacBook Air is taking some real getting used to. I created my first document in it yesterday, and it was such a frustrating process to learn a new word processing program after years of using Microsoft Word. And just now as I was typing this, a message came up on my desktop that told me that I had been logged out of another site, and it kicked me out of this page as I was typing. And I am having a really hard time working with Safari, and figuring out which windows I have open and how to use the tabs.
2. Cozi won’t let me sign in. I used the “forgot password” link and am waiting for the email. Very odd. I know I had the correct login info, and I really want to update it with this week’s INSANE calendar before it sends out the weekly calendar email tomorrow.
3. Pinterest: I am both intrigued and frustrated by this program. I am obsessed with creating my own pinboards, which are sort of like virtual bulletin boards of your interests and inspirations in any category, and that was supposed to be my topic for today. But unfortunately you have to email them and wait for an invite. Then, when you finally do get one, you have to download the little Pin tool thing that lets you attach items to your boards. So far, my friend Erin and I are still waiting on invites, my sister is still trying to figure out how to find that Pin tool and get started, and several of my other friends are already hooked. I will get the scoop on this, since it appears to be one of the coolest things ever, so stay tuned!
