Techno-klutz and the very expensive coffee

I simply cannot make myself be technologically adept.

In my last post, when I tried to link to my friend Dee's post about meeting each other in Atlanta last month, I didn't link to that post specifically, just to her blog in general, so if you clicked on the link, you were probably scratching your head and asking, "Huh? What does a rattlesnake have to do with it?" Or a dog with a Frisbee, or fancy boots or whatever she happened to be blogging about on that particular day. If that last bit confuses you, you'll just have to go read Dee's blog. Anyway, I've changed the link in my previous post.

Now, speaking of technology, take a lesson from me and keep all beverages far from your laptops, okay? A couple of weeks ago, my laptop had a close encounter with my morning coffee. That was one expensive cup of joe. Thank God the hard drive survived just fine even though I didn't know you should immediately unplug the thing and yank the battery so it can't short circuit. And thank God for my friend Jim, who found a replacement keyboard online. All is well, and my coffee is far from my laptop.

I am still figuring out my cell phone.

So what you're really trying to say is Starbucks coffee is cheaper than computer coffee?

And you better learn your cell phone quick considering you're going to be gone quite a bit over the next two weeks!!!

Don't worry, you can use mine in Dallas. I'll let you!!

I'm just trying to say the morning caffeine should go into the person, not into the laptop.

I've figured out my phone, mostly. Lucky for me, it's not one of the newfangled models that do everything but tap-dance.
