I'm The Techi Of The Family

This weekend I have the huge task of setting up my mom's computer system, which includes connecting her to the Internet. I love my mom, but she's just not tech savvy. It's so bad that she's still using dial-up. To make matters worse she's paying more for dial up then she will pay for high speed Internet. What a scam! She's just a mess right now with the computer situation. The hubby called our Internet provider last week and set her up with high speed Internet, wireless router and a modem. I was thinking about encouraging her to look at netbooks. I think that would serve her needs. It's going to be a long day Saturday. So wish me luck.

  4. She's so lucky to have you. I think I'd be more computer savvy if I had more time for it. Right now I'm lost in a book and I'm not doing anything else lol. Have fun Saturday - you'll do it all for her.

  5. I can relate. You go in thinking it SHOULD be a breeze then you find yourself doing more updates and downloading drivers. By the time you finish you really wish someone would just give you a hug :-)
