Why is it always so simple?
Guess what? I'm typing this out on my new computer. (Need to set up a desk chair yet, as having a "real" computer (instead of a laptop) means that my stool has me sitting too high for the keyboard.) I will likely also have to get myself an adapter or a new printer, as my old printer (which has been my friend for 6-7 years) doesn't have a USB connection.
The question of the day is: why is it always so simple? I mean, I set up the computer, no problems there, I connected everything that needed connecting, but the internet didn't work. So I read through troubleshooting files, released my ip connection, renewed it...NOTHING. I turned off and on the modem. NOTHING.
This morning, I was ready to call in the big help. I told them what was going on. What I had tried. Guess what he said. "Try unplugging the modem for 10 seconds and replugging it in". It worked. Why??? Why would I even think to unplug and replug something that is running? Why didn't turning it off and back on again do anything? Why was the answer so simple?
Now, the fun thing is, I have a web cam. Not planning on using it now...I worked overnight and am not the prettiest sight in the world. However, I have found that it's a fun little toy, and will likely try to play and see family here, there, and everywhere via this new toy that I have up and running!
(Oh yeah, I'm getting used to my new keyboard...so far so good, but there are some issues with placement of some keys etc.)
Hope this finds you well. I'm going to go and assemble my new desk chair. It's blue.
