Beware: a rant !..
I have at long last got a new computer (A nice shiny Samsung with lots of memory for my D800) but…………………….
It has windows 8 – ukkk…….. what the heck are all those tile things ! ho and it will not let me use my Plustek 7600i scanner (yet! ?) I will give it a go for a while but can see me re-formatting and loading my windows 7, time will tell.
I hate new technology, I thought it made life easier ? but …… A camera takes pictures, a phone makes calls, a computer allows one to control things; but no, it seems I can now talk to friends I didn’t know I had, join FaceBook (I don’t think so) play games on line with all those new friends I didn’t know I had – and so it goes.
Ho well, back to getting Firefox working the way I like it and where did I put all those serial numbers for software.
I think I will continue looking for a good Nikon ‘F’ at a fair price because at least it is clockwork 🙂
p.s…. I have just been told all the things on Windows 8 help improve my life-style and help connect with people: what the hell is that .. my life is ok (much the same as most I think) and as far as connecting with people – I thought face to face conversation or the very least pen & paper did that!!!!!!
