I’m still alive and well, and have not forgotten this goal or the promised prizes. My computer, however, is not so alive and well, so I’ve been a bit delayed. Right now I am using my OLD computer, which features Windows 98 and Internet Explorer 6. And no slot for my photo card (so all my pics are uploaded onto a friend’s computer). IE is really, really, really slow, and gets jammed up easily. This is my first venture on to 43Things with it, and I wasn’t sure how it would do. Not too bad, so far – it only took me about 20 secs for this box to open up when I clicked on “write an entry”.
I had some of the prizes kind of lined up, then realized I need to give out the awards first, so I know what I am mailing where; unfortunately, even viewing pictures on this computer is next to impossible, since it tends to jam up IE moving from picture to picture. Not to mention moving from page to page. So, I promise to find some quality and quantity time to spend on a decent computer elsewhere – either at the library or at a friend’s house.
Meanwhile, I miss the scavenger hunts, and all of you, and wonder what I am missing out on.
