Since my trusty old friend the HP died, Garry decided I needed a new friend. So I am now the proud owner of a Toshiba notebook with a 17" screen that is wide as opposed to tall like my old laptop. Width means that I can run two programs side by side on the same screen. Trawling the net for obituaries just got a whole lot nicer.
I had to call Verizon (my provider) because I couldn't get the wireless to hook up. Seems there's something a miss with our router. They are sending a new one. In the meantime, I'm tethered to a wire. However, I have lots and lots of stuff to do since I have this new toy.
One nice item is a full size keyboard. I'm going to have to get accustomed to not bunching my fingers together to type.
It also has a web cam...I'm not so sure about the web cam...
I can also haul this one to work and let them load a communication package so that I can tap into my work desktop too. It will make a nice back up in case my home desktop decided to act up.
