Many restarts

Well I'm still here, Window8 certainly appears great albeit my graphics card doesn't work so everything is a bit squished so you are all looking a bit chubbier than usual. My scanner which is over 12 years old works, my Epson printer which has lost it's bloom of youth is also working as is the craft robo, My craft studio, Craft Artist, Kaleidoscope etc etc. I have never used Windows 7 or Vista so I cannot compare them but I think I will like it.
I did have to update my Microsoft Office but as I was running with Office 2003 I think that is fine, only had a very quick play but my excel spreadsheets look fine (my list of dies and important things like that) and I managed to print from word and it managed to read a document which had been converted from Office 97 to 2003 so I am a happy bunny. Once we get the graphics card done and I tidy up, I will be back to normal!!! Enjoy your crafting and stay warm. xx Flora

  3. Pleased to hear you are getting on ok with Windows 8 Flora..I am sure in a week or so you will have sorted out all your little problems...


  4. You're a better man than I am Gungha Din! If I didn't have John I would be lost if anything went wrong! I'm only okay providing things are in working order and doing what I want them to do - otherwise I'm sunk. Good luck anyway, it sounds as if you are just about there! Christine x

  5. Hang in there Flora, it can only get better.

  6. Hi Flora,
    as Wilma said hopefully things can only get better.
    Lots of crafty love.Jenny L.

  7. Good Morning Flora, great to see you are still out there.
    Oh! My! Word! you have made me dizzy with all that technical stuff, you know how stupid I am about computers.
    Unlike Christine "MY" John is even worse than me. He does know how to switch the thing on now.
    I am off for a lie down to recover.
    Have a Great Day

    Patricia xx
