Yesterday I was trying to do something new on my blog and realized I had 527 comments stored. Well, no wonder my computer kept sending me notes about memory usage. So, I deleted tons of them. Intended to keep the more current ones, like maybe a month's worth, but got carried away and they are all gone!
I don't know why it is that every time I try something new, I mess up what I thought I had already mastered. It never fails. Maybe it's because I'm not a product of the computer generation. When I started working, I was typing (on a manual typewriter!) spreadsheets on Ditto masters - my purple summer. Got really good at typing numbers, but I had purple from those Ditto masters everywhere all summer. Was never so happy to go back to school.
I didn't really work with computers until the 1980s, more than 20 years after I started working, so some was self taught. I took a couple courses at IBM for a specific computer system for the hospital I worked at, and once after we moved here I took a sort of basic course hoping I would learn something, but it turned out to be too basic. So, I stumble through and every day I learn something new by trial and error, lots of errors.
Everyone laughs at how hard I hit the keys when I type (enter data) on my computer, but my fingers apparently still remember those manual typewriters I worked on for a long time. I even had a portable Olivetti typewriter - anyone remember those?
Anyway, I'm sorry about all your lovely comments but once again I learned something. :-(
