Yesterday I received my new work laptop. Luckily it took me less than half an hour to move everything I needed across to it.
I use dropbox for all my documents. Installed this on the new laptop and BAM five minutes later I had all the documents on the new machine. The other fantastic thing I use is Xmarks which sync’s all Firefox bookmarks and passwords.
The only thing that took the time was installing all the apps, programs and utilities. However I have seen this as a good opportunity to have a clear out and not install any that I don’t use!
OK following on from my first eBay woe with the scanner, I inherited a laptop about 18 months ago that I was asked to fix, but the person who asked me to fix it didn’t have a charger and told me to keep the laptop and not worry about fixing it so I put it in the pile of IT kit under the bed.
The other day mum asked me if I have a spare laptop knocking around and i thought about it and eventually found it. So I went straight on eBay and bought a charger for it. Which works perfectly, booted it up and it loaded into windows, i then tried to log in to the laptop but the keyboard was sticking, I removed the keyboard and gave it a wipe down to see if it would work, with no joy! I went Straight back onto eBay, found and ordered through “buy it now” a replacement keyboard. Now this was a month ago. After various conversations with the seller who’s in Hong Kong, he is now blaming it on the English postal strike. Which hasn’t happened yet?
