A Travellerspoint blog

My favorite thing about computers ...

When they work, they're great! When they don't, it usually spells disaster.

We left Salt Lake City at six this AM and I worked on my computer for the entire three hour flight to Atlanta.
All was fine.
I'm working on an album of our barn and made some great progress. Here's the cover .. as a sneak preview


Once in Atlanta, we headed to the Delta lounge to pass the time until our flight at 7:30 tonight to Rome. It's a long layover and I thought I could get a lot accomplished on the album.

Well, guess again. I couldn't see the pointer on my screen. No matter where I scrolled I couldn't see the pointer or click on the screen to do anything. AH .. PANIC! I tried to troubleshoot using my phone without success. My big concern is that to come back into the US we have to have our monitored Covid Test (Yes, that's still required .... even though you don't need it if you're not a citizen and you come into the States by car, bus or on foot! I wonder why our government wants to pick on the Airline industry and all those potential travel dollars that could be helping our economy. UGH!! Anyhow, without a working computer that could be a problem to do the test and have it monitored online.

So, thank heavens I hac ordered Dell support when I got my new computer! Without it, this would have been a very costly day. I spent literally hours on the phone with tech support. And, as you can see, I was able to get the laptop working again. I wonder how someone can do IT work all day long and actually enjoy it. Good thing somebody does!! As I said, when they work they're great .. and thanks to Tech Support a disaster was averted.

We're on our way... we get to Rome at 11 AM on Friday. I'll be trying to catch some ZZZZ on the flight as opposed to working on my computer. There's an 8 hour time difference between home and there so it's a long day by the time we land. But I'll be in touch ....from Tuscany :)
