Tech support


It's been a busy week-end..showing property, talking to new sellers, nursing Geno who has cedar fever (thank goodness he felt good eough for family pictures yesterday in Tail Head Park in Canyon Creek)! It's Monday morning and time to get kick started for a new week. Hope your coffee is brewing and you can join me for a first cup. We all rely on our computers on a daily basis...maybe some of us too much.  Is it time for YOU to reassess?

 


Reassess Your Computer Interactions

It's time to reassess your relationship with your computer when .....

* You wake up at 4 o'clock in the morning to go to the bathroom and stop at the computer to check your email on the way back to bed.

*You turn off your computer and get an awful empty feeling, as if you just pulled the plug on a loved one.

*You decide to stay in college for an additional year or two, just for the free internet access.

*You start using smileys :-) in your snail mail.

*When you hand-write a note and think... SPELL CHECKER'!

*You can't correspond with your mother because she doesn't have a computer.

*When your computer's email box shows 'no new messages' and you feel really depressed.

*You don't know the gender of your three closest friends because they have a nondescript screen name and you never bothered to ask.

*Your family always knows where you are.

*In real life conversations, you don’t laugh, you just say ‘LOL, LOL’

*After reading this message, you immediately forward it to a friend!

I love this post Dorie-I must tell you that I often tip toe and pass my office so that I can AVOID communication with my good friend MAC, so that I can get a cup of coffee first, before we settle down to a conversation-it's way too addictive!!

Dorie  My Webster's is in a "easy to reach" spot at my work station when I need a spell checker for handwritten which I really enjoy writing when I'm not sending email  :)

I think I can adopt the entire list, Dorie. We really do need a spell-checker for our hand-written notes. Suggested.

Dorie,

That is so funny, and so true.  We all have become dependent on the Internet as a means of communications.  However, we are seeing signs of people wanting to really have face time without any gadgers. /a

Dorie-How did we get anything done before we had computers? I'm guilty of most the things on your list, at least I can have a cup of coffee and do them quickly.

Dorie- oh this is so true.  I have a few friends who do not use email or the computer much, if at all.  I find myself stumped at times because I want to be able to text or email them.  Hello... pick up the phone.. I tell myself.

Reassess time spent in front of a computer....very good advice for many of us.  Let's take a daily walk.
