The 1st week of the MKExperience

Well, as I’ve just mentioned in an email to Steve my guide, what a first week.

Last Sunday morning the power cable on my laptop went south. Sunday afternoon, whilst playing dodge ball with, I hasten to add, a little over zealous mother, my 12 years old son broke his little finger. We arrived back from the hospital at around 7:30 p.m. with the webinar to start at 9:00 p.m. Ouch!

Annnnd, with the laptop out of commission, I had to join the webinar by phone. You can’t see anything. I wombled my way through the beginning of the week trying to print from my mobile phone.

It gets absolutely better, hang in there. On Wednesday the power lead arrived, connected it up to the laptop, plugged it in and…. nothing! Not a blue flashing light to be seen anywhere… “Oh dear” I thought, but not in those exact words. Tried again, contact, we were ON!

First port of call, the webinar replay. Buffering, lagging, timeouts… WHAT! Commence the bemoaning on the ISP and how woefully inadequate they are.

Thursday morning, hang-on, didn’t I change that ethernet cable from the router last weekend? Swapped it out and it was “One small step for man, one giant leap for Trevor Joy!” Talking, words, moving pictures, instructions I could understand, advice that I’d never heard! BLISS!

Through the whole of this I never really lost it. I became a little frustrated, but never lost it.

I feel a changed man and ready to challenge the world after just one week. Smiley face (I have no idea how to do emoji’s here).

  1. Hi, Trevor! Your Blog Rover friend, Loren, here. You are a joy, Trevor! You remind me of Rodney Dangerfield – this first blog does anyway. Harkening back to when I did the MKE program five years ago, I, too, experienced technology issues similar to yours. I’d like to say smoother sailing lies ahead, but… Just kidding. LOL

    Great post! I look forward to reading more. By the way, the “smiley face” soon to follow is something that morphed out of a colon, followed by a hyphen, followed by a closed parentheses. I have mentioned that, because as I recall I didn’t know it until I started writing my blog 1/2 a decade ago – figuratively speaking. LOL 🙂
