Coming live...

So I'm in the Apple store in Basingstoke...live as it were. And wearing a WOYWW badge! But the point is I'm here because I've had a whine about not being able to use the keyboard on the iPad when commenting, and about Blogpress saying it won't publish my photos from the 'Media Library'. So the young (and I mean young) man has suggested I take a seat int he personal set up area and try posting from here. So for the next hour or so, if you see a defeated looking fat woman walking around Basingstoke with her gorgeous looking, newly coiffed red headed Daughter, you'll know the geeks have got the better of me.  I already think all the problems I've had an embarrassed but gentle whine about are created by a weaker wi-fi signal at home than there must be in the shop. The signal is almost palpable.  Oh wait, that might be the heady mix of blue t shirted youngsters and technology I don't understand.  What's palpable? My fear.

Oh dear - I hope you get it sorted :-( I hate not being as computer-Lit as the youngsters !!!
Your question on my WOYWW - the ticks on the right-hand page are what I usually do... being left-handed most of the time.... I do weird backwards Ticks and my question marks are backwards too :-D LoL
Thank you for visiting my Bloggie xxxxxxxxx

ike said...

Oh, yeah - and you never did tell me what that big yellow handled thingy is on your desk ?????? :-D

kay said...

well any joy?
hope you have sorted out your problems,x

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

You have wi-fi woes, I have Blogger problems. Hope both of ours get fixed soon. Sooner than the glass in the garage (from "Doing Day") gets replaced, at least!

Elizabeth said...

Goosh, I don't believe that I get a better wi-fi signal up here, but I do ... it's a miracle. Now if I could only persuade Royal Mail to deliver stuff here as quickly and as efficiently as elsewhere in the UK I'd be a very happy bunny indeed.

I don't suppose you can answer this one ... how can I provide a link on my blog for Wordpress folk ... I've had a poke around the back of blogger but still don't know how to do it!

Firstly I hope you are home by now....and not still tinkering in the dark...! I was at the NEC all day and flashed my badge and bump around every stand without a single peak or trough on the reactor scale...we need flashing lights and a theme tune methinks...!
Ever tried moving the router around at home...do you have thick walls if I may be so rude as to ask?!!
Sarah.

Helen said...

Hope you are all tech'd up now!

I'm not going to AP tomorrow, no - what's on?

laurie said...

good luck with this, I need all the help I can get when it comnes to anything techie

Violets Corner said...

Oh, techie things seems to have a life of their own...and the geeks tend to speak a completely other language. Stay close to the router dear!

Warm hugs
Maarit

Chris said...

Hope the techie bit is sorted and I'm sure the shop has the best wi-fi signal in the world which we rarely have at home. My router works best upside down for some reason :D!

Paula Gale said...

I thought you were going to say that someone recognised you or saw your badge while you were out... now that would be great wouldn't it. More surreal would be if one of the young men recognised it because their mom did WOYWW... Sounds like you need to sit in there more often ;-)

Technology huh - its sent to drive us mad!'

big hugs

Paula x x x

I too was waiting to hear that someone recognized your badge. I hate technology. I have a geek hubby but I try to get a geek friend help me out when he isn't around. Less swearing happens that way.

sandee said...

Well Mr. D. just needs to up your signal, doesn't he? lol Glad you had a young man to help, some of them are unreal in what they know! Did you get my e-mail about the badge? Just checking. waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Spyder said...
