Today I'm Going to Try to do Better

Not that I don't try everyday, but the last couple days my laptop has been against me in participating here in myLot. Posting, reading, and commenting has been a major chore as the arrow chases its tail trying to determine whether it will allow me to work here and interact or it will give me a timeout error. I simply gave up last night as the arrow never did stop chasing it's tail. So hopefully that won't be the case again today and I will actually make a dent in the now large number of notifications I have as a result of my being unable to participate as I would like to. So here's to my seeing you today and reading your posts and interacting with you. Thanks for reading.

Me too. I just checked out sales on towers and found they are half what they were after Christmas. So I might be able to get a great deal on a tower after all.

How do you hook up the external keyboard to a laptop?

@just4him It has a USB port . Although the old keybooard should be disabled for it to function .

Thanks for the offer. I'll have my new tower in two weeks and no emergency is going to stop me.

I just got back from a short grocery trip and checked on towers before coming back to myLot. I hope my laptop will still behave even though I checked sales on them, and found some real good sales on towers right now. Half what they were after Christmas.

@Jessicalynnt I don't think it's Christmas money, more like tax refund money.

I think its something to do with the connection speed. Sometimes happens with me when there is low speed.

It has to do with the fact this laptop is so old and needs to be replaced.

@aju007 I bought it used, so I'm not sure. The desktop was new in 2011 and this one is older.

Is it because of the site or your computer? For me it's my laptop.

@just4him I am certain for me it is my computer, or my carrier or how much I have open.

I know how frustrating it is. I have got my beloved PC back today and I am winging away catching up.

That's great! I hope you'll be able to catch up. I've well over 200 to get caught up on. Yesterday was a good day, and I'm hoping today will be as good. But I'm already seeing error boxes.

Third Wednesday is when I'll have my next SS check. So as soon as it's in the bank, I'm going to Best Buy.

In fact, I have just come back after a busy day, week attending my routine job and also my family task. Now you're doing well. I would be reading more of your posts here in the days to come.

Have you tried to clear the cache of your browser? Sometimes it helps. Good luck.

I haven't done it in a while, but whenever I do, it really messes up the laptop. I don't know why it does, so I've left it alone.

I get a lot of timeout messages. For me, I have found that I usually can get in earlier in the day. Also, if I am having a hard time reading others' posts I put one of my own. I may get a timeout message, but the discussion goes up and then I can get in. I know how frustrating it is.

Isn't it amazing the tricks we learn to overcome our machines to get some work out of them? I get my new tower in two weeks.
