I know it’s Wednesday.
I know it’s Wednesday but I thought that after I’ve written a post here on Friday I’ll take a week of vacation from the blog and start again on Friday 18th again. I always take one week of when I have vacation so I can concentrate on other things, well not that I do other things to be honest but just in case 🙂
With the new laptop that arrived yesterday I also got the new mobile broadband stick. I needed a new one if I would be able to reach those faster speeds they said I would from now on. The instructions said I needed to uninstall the old modem before installing the new one. Said and done and with no problems at all. Then I installed the new one and I have to say I didn’t expect that many problems to be honest. I put the modem in the computer and nothing happens? Normally I get a wired little signal telling me that something new is waiting to be installed. I pulled it out and pushed it in again and now that little weird signal came, nothing more.
It was like “Yeah there is something new but I won’t tell You what it is or how to install it”. I did it all again and this time Windows 8 actually told me I had something there and that it was the broad band but not that it would allow it to be installed! I did it all again and this time Windows 8 actually told me that I really should install it if I ever wanted to use it but refused to tell me how. I found the app for mobile broad band and it looked like it actually was installed. Nothing is ever easy, is it? Now it demanded me to print down a security code with 20 numbers to allow me to even come close to actually be able to use my broad band. Then it demanded the pin code as well and then I was allowed to go out on the net.
One would think all problems would be solved now but oh how wrong one would be 🙂 It turns out windows 8 won’t allow me to have an icon on my desk top? and to make it even more fun I had to print down all numbers again if I wanted to use the internet 🙂 🙂 🙂 So I called my internet company and with their help we managed to get rid of most number printing (after only an hour 🙂 ) but still no icon, that seems to be impossible. This morning I got rid of the pin code writing as well but every time I want to use the internet I still have to go to the app and click on place there before it starts up. Oh how I love windows 8!!!!
We’ve had a rather nice morning here. The humidity is much lower but still a bit too high and until now the temperature has stayed rather low and we still have a rather strong wind that actually helps instead of feeling like a giant hair dryer . Now it’s 27C (80,6F) and the temperature is rising steadily. Yesterday we got 30C (86F) but the thunder never came as they had predicted. It would have been nice to get that cooler air but then again the humidity would have been just as high today instead.
It’s time for a pot of coffee and I’ll see if they show anything worth watching on tv. It’s just a bit too hot outside now. But all plants love this weather (well I do too) and have finally started to grow again 🙂
Have a great day!
