The really good thing is that I will still be able to see my current work colleagues often, as my new work place is not far from where I work now. I like that!!!
Another exciting thing for me this week is that I finally bought a new computer after being without a computer for quite a few weeks. I ummed and ahhed whether to buy another desktop or to go with a laptop this time. The decision was made more difficult because with my new job there is quite a bit of travel, which means I will be away overnight sometimes. This made me consider a laptop so that I could scrap and work on the site instead of being bored in a sterile motel/hotel room. The down side was that after reading a lot of the pro's and con's of laptops in relation to digi scrapping, it seemed that the laptop screens let the side down badly when used for photo editing and digiscrapping. As this is 90% of what I spend my time doing on the computer it seemed I was going to have to get used to the boredom in motel rooms.
Bruce finally came up with a solution that seemed to cover the whole gammut of problems - buy a laptop that I could take away with me, but at home plug in my monitor...problem solved!
After lots of searching and homework, I finally bought a Dell Studio 17. Pretty good gaming card for those of us who like to play games (512mb), 500gb HD, 4gb RAM, fingerprint security, face recognition, built in web cam and microphone, AND BEST OF ALL...........a 17" cystal clear screen...........nearly as good as my LCD screeen. So no problem with scrapping even when I'm away. I'm rapt.........sigh!
I still have to have ring the service guy and get all the stuff off my old computer syphoned off and put onto the new one, and of course I have to get Photoshop loaded again, but I am on my way. I haven't been able to do a LO since early June, so I am suffering withdrawals badly, but at least there is light at the end of the tunnel now. SOON I keep telling myself, SOON!
