Barnes and Noble located in a local mall.
The picture of the rustic peach pie doesn’t have anything to do with this post. But I have been thinking about it and I just happened to pass a truck along the road selling Georgia Peaches as I made my way to the nearest free wi-fi available to me this lovely Sunday afternoon.
You see I have been without internet service for about 24 hours now. Not a fun thing when you have work to do I can assure you.
The internet went out yesterday afternoon as I mentioned but I just thought something simple was wrong like I needed to reenter the security code for the wi-fi at home. So an SOS to the provider was not made until late afternoon.
Like an hour before the repair technicians went home for the weekend.
Now Monday is the earliest that a tech will be dispatched to make repairs!
Did I mention I have work to do?
Yes I have work that needs to be done over the weekend so that it can be posted the first of the week.
I have realized that I am very dependent on things that are cloud based and need the internet to access. I bet you are also!
I also realized that I will be downloading Windows Live Writer before the laptop battery dies.
Years ago I used Windows Live Writer to update my blogger blog occasionally. For some reason I quit using it. Then I moved my blog over to WordPress and never even considered using it until the internet went down yesterday.
As I spent the better part of the day, my birthday at that… reading a Nora Roberts book because I was lost without the internet.
Well that’s not the only reason I was reading it. I happen to love Nora Roberts and had picked up this book on Friday at a thrift store. But I was totally lost as to how I was going to get my work done before the deadlines without camping out at a local wi-fi spot over night.
Then I remembered Windows Live Writer and guess what it was already installed on this laptop and I didn’t even know it until I just tried downloading it and got a messgae telling me I had a newer version installed.
So I could have been working on my blog posts yesterday instead of reading Nora Roberts.
Oh well I’ve got to run the battery is dying in the laptop and I can’t find an outlet in the cafe!
See you soon! I hope.
