One Moment | My Springtime Office

One of the reasons I bought myself a fancy dancy high powered laptop was so I could spend time processing photos, working on videos for my online classes etc… someplace other than my upstairs studio. I get to see a bit more of my family, and it’s nice to change up the surroundings a bit.

My New HP Pavilion dv7 Laptop | A Tale of Woe

I’ve referred to my computer woes a few times in the past month, and now that my tale of woe has come to a sad end, I thought I’d share it with folks. It’s part cautionary tale, and partly I’m hoping to encourage other folks who end up having the same issue with this laptop… Continue Reading
