Back on my Windows laptop. Last night I just couldn’t take it anymore – the slowness of the Mac. There must be something wrong with it, that I can’t figure out. I thought it would be faster when I took it off wifi and put it on the cable instead, but that wasn’t the case.
Anyway, it’s morning now and I’m more bright-eyed and bushy-tailed than I was last night, and I’m writing this in my beloved blog editor “Windows Live Writer”. I’ve said it before, I think … that was the one thing I missed on the Mac: WLW. I’m not alone. One time I googled whether there was some kind of work-around so that you could get WLW on a Mac. Oodles of people had asked the same question, but the answer was no.
As if that switch wasn’t enough, I had other ordeals last night. Spent at least half an hour on the phone with some little Asian girl at Samsung. Netflix didn’t work on the TV, and after having talked with a nice young man there, he told me it wasn’t them, it was Samsung and he gave me the number. Nothing was resolved after that lengthy phone conversation and she said they’d fix it remotely (!!!). I believe it when I see it.
Secondly, I … in my immense innocence … thought that I could just plug in my external harddrive on the Windows computer. Oh, I could plug it in alright … but that was about all! It wouldn’t show up. So … after doing a little bit of research this morning, I find that if I want to use it on a Windows computer, I’d have to format it!!! Erase all! Cripes! That’s not gonna happen. Plugged it back in on the Mac, and put the essentials in OneDrive, for now … until my mind is clear over how I’m going to live: Windows or Mac.
So, instead I ended up watching one episode of The Killing here, on the computer. Today is a snowday so I think I’ll just vegetate on the couch, watching more episodes on the iPad.
