Anyway, all is over and I am nearly A1 again, but need to get the brain cells working as well as the fitness thing so decided to splash out on some new kit.....hmmmm
A monitor so I can see what I am doing when I use my graphics capabilites would help I thought as I have for too long been subjected to a 15 inch laptop screen, not good when 3 years ago I had a really serious monitor for my DTP and stuff. So I have a 23 inch arriving tomorrow. Not an expensive one either but it does seem to be a good screen; at least I spent half of yesterday doing my research. When you live in the country aka Cumbria its difficult to see anything in the flesh except of course sheep....... So pouring over reviews is the only option I have: way back when I was head of computing at a local college it was what I used to do when I had loads of dosh to splash around, (¼ million once I seem to recall.) Anyway, I have only spent £138 so I don't expect it to be an all singing and dancing model but I do expect my screen to double in size and for that I am truly grateful. If the resolution improves enormously too so that I can see what I am doing in my graphics program that will be wonderful. So here is the beast, let me introduce you to......
But you would think that was enough.... no I am serious when I say I am getting my act together because what with my interests in quilting and sewing and computers and being a mountain leader, my desk is a tip but not my sewing table which I sorted about 4 years ago. Now that was a decision which changed my sewing from haphazard to bliss, so I thought about that too. Result, a new desk was also researched and is on its way from Ayrshire in Scotland to me in Keswick, yesssss.
Its a proper desk not what I am using at the moment which is a Heath Robinson affair. So let me show you the beauty.
Meanwhile, my other jobs are pressing, i.e. the button on KR guided walks which is supposed to launch some script and go to an online booking system is not working yet so I have work to do.
