Hello hello from my new laptop – what fun, what joy! Or it will be once I get used to this new keyboard… that’s always… problematic. For starters, it’s a full keyboard, so my hand memory program for where keys are on a laptop isn’t accurate anymore. For seconds, the keys don’t need much pressure to trigger, so I’m near bruising my fingertips trying to not slam around as merrily as I used to. The keys are also much too smooth and are of a different edge-shape than what I’m used to, so… I’ll get there in time, but for the moment, there’s a lot of frustration and backspacing.
There’s also all the other little things one must do to make the new computer home. I managed to get most things sorted – my radio stations were ported, I managed to copy over all my relevant profile data from Firefox (lifesaver!), as well as some of the ‘important’ bits from the Sims. I even managed to arrange almost everything so it feels about the same as the old laptop, making the transition even easier.
Of course, there’s always something that haaaas to make it difficult. You know who you are, MSN Messenger! I spent a good hour this morning poking around online trying to reharvest my smilies, and while I have most of them back, there’s a handful that might just be lost to the sands of time. And, apparently, they got rid of the background I liked, so even more annoying…but y’know, not the end of the world.
Seriously though, cannot wait until my fingers get used to this keyboard. They keep trying to type the wrong words and… ugh. I know that I’ll get used to it all in time, but for now, I’m going to cut this short before I strangle a kitten or something. xD
Have a great day!
