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).
