I am a creature of routine. I approach change slowly and with plenty of thought. I don't like things sprung on me and need days, sometimes weeks, to warm up to new things. Why am I telling you this? Because last week the trusty, familiar, old cranky computer mentioned in a previous post refused to turn on. No matter how often I jabbed the power button with increasing force and panic it refused to power up. Not even when I used the usually magical-seeming trick of pulling out the battery and putting it back in. I thought my head was going to explode (for all sorts of reasons, 11,000 photos not the least). Not only would I be forced to buy a new computer before I was comfortable with the idea but I would actually have to USE it without letting it sit on the table in the box unopened for a few weeks (months?) while I wrapped my head around it. And although my learning curve for all the new stuff on the up-to-date computer is steep, there are some cool perks. Isn't that true of most upgrades?
