Until now, I’ve avoided writing posts on my phone — I may have tried it once, but doing it right now reminds me how difficult it is. I replaced a wonky keyboard on my laptop last week, thinking I had solved an ongoing problem, and it did — for a week. Now, once I’m signed in, it refuses to respond to any input — keyboard, touchpad or left mouse button.
I converted the laptop to Linux Mint two years ago, when Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 7 — security, etc.. I made the laptop dual boot, Windows and Linux so I could continue to edit photos and videos with favorite programs, but I stay off the internet, since Windows security is lacking. Imagine this — I can still do that. Everything — keyboard, mouse and touchpad — works fine. Go figure. At least I’ll be able to write there.
I used an old Windows 7 desktop to do a Zoom session today, but otherwise it will be no computer time for me, at least for a couple of days. I really don’t like surfing on my phone. I need a real screen. I ordered a new laptop this evening, and it should be here on Friday.
I dislike Windows 8 through 10, which is why I’ve been relying on the old Windows 7 laptop, but I guess now I’ll have to adjust to Windows 11. Damn technology!
