My sweet and dear readers…
As you know we all have categories on our blogs and the main category,…the one that started me on this journey, is the category of “Confessions: Over-the-hedge’
…..and that is where I want to start today.
So if you are ready…
……if you have that cuppa something in hand or if you are from the south, a sweet ice tea, please come sit by me and let’s talk.
I need to get something off my chest and ask for your help.
Many times I just roll with the punches because I am woman!
We are resilient.
Let’s talk about computers!
Before you throw your hands up and leave this conversation to go do laundry,…
Please hear me out.
When I first started blogging, I used my HP laptop and It was just fine, sometimes it was a little slow in downloading but…..
However, the Captain had an Apple and he said Apple was the way of the future and the way to go with lap tops.
“You should really get an Apple” he said.
So about 3 years ago…I bought an Apple.
And it was a learning curve on some programs, but I muddled through.
I noticed the letter “t” on my keyboard looked worn….some of the light was shining through making the “t” look more like the Starship Enterprise space ship.
But it still worked fine.
So as I do with most things...”if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
And then I noticed that when I typed….. a rreally long sentteenece…..thee lettters “e”, “ r”, and “t”, repeateed likee tthis!
(You might have noticed in a few posts that I have unintentionally used the word “thee” for the word “the”…
……and No, I have not resorted to using the “thee and thous” in my every day speak.)
It is my keyboard.
I would go back and delete the extra letters, underlined with red dots (but thee is a word, so many times I would miss it) …and for good measure, I trimmed my long finger nails.
That did not solve the problem.
I asked Google how to “fix” this issue and apparently this is an issue with quite a few MacBook Pro and other Macs.
The suggestion is above.
I should have known that when the printed word said it is worth a try that it would NOT work.
However, I still tried that suggestion.
The second suggestion was to use a blast of air from a canister, by twisting and contorting the laptop and myself, as I shot bursts of air into my keyboard.
Luckily, I had a canister on hand.
So now I am at the point, that it is so annoying, I am going to take it to the Apple Store.
You might say, well why are you hesitating??
Well, the Apple store is about 30 miles away and if you have ever been to these stores, you have to make an appointment.
And then you go to the store and you wait and you wait and you wait, so naturally, this is something that I would put off as long as possible.
Because I wait for no man….so to speak.
I do not have the patience to wait for hours although, I have had to bite the bullet in many instances and ‘hurry up and wait’.
I will not wait an hour and a half at a restaurant where they won’t take reservations.
In my opinion, no food is that good!
There is always a restaurant down the street and there is always McDonalds. LOL
Sorry, I digress. 🙂
Do any of you have a Mac and if you do, have you had this problem?
Unttil tthen I will keeeep on keeeping on unttil I gett down tto theee Appleee sttore.
