I’ve had my new laptop for almost two weeks now and can you believe that I’m still working on installing software and moving files over from my other two computers? In fact, I’ve barely installed anything on the new laptop other than the barebones that I need to do my work.
I don’t know why I’m being so slow in getting this new computer set up. Usually I just get busy transferring files and installing software and adjusting things until I”m happy with the settings on a new computer, but this time I’m just not doing that.
Maybe it’s because this computer is Windows 7 it’s a little different than what I”m used to? I don’t really think that’s the cause … I mean, Windows 7 is different that Windows XP, but not all that different and well, I’ve been working with computers since back in the old 286 days. I’ve worked with everything from Dos to having to put in 5.25″ Floppy drives to run Word Perfect. Uh Huh … It’s not the new system … it’s me. I’m just in a funk I guess.
I’ve been very stressed lately so I’m sure that’s contributing. We also bought an iPod and a Flip camcorder around the same time as the new laptop so I’m trying to teach myself how to use all three things at once. That’s probably adding to my stress. LOL I’ve found that when I get too stress with all the computer stuff I just turn on my old laptop and work with that one for a while, or I pack everything up and head for bed, put on my tretinoin cream and try to get some sleep and hope that everything will look fresh in the morning.
Have you ever taken longer than you though you would to set up a new computer?
