Well done AnnMarie. I am not to bad with IT but find myself arguing with my PC. We do get there in the end, more by luck, trial and error than any expertise. :-S

Hey, if you,ve done that once, get about and do it half price for others and make a few quid. :-D

Sue, thank you, I like to try to do computor things myself but being of an age (nearer 70 than 60 lol) I find some of it confusing, hence if I cannot do it I ask 'the kids' who are very patient with me. Hubby hasnt a clue, bless him. :-) :-)

Well done!!
However, it has to be stated, that when an IT 'expert' is called to fix a computer problem the first thing they say is'turn it off & on again'

Usually, I've already done that.

Then they're stumped, and appear to follow instructions from a (working) computer - I can do that!!!

I feel really proud of myself.We had a 'new super hub 'delivered today from our internet provider.They said we could install it ourselves or pay them £49.99 and they would do it for us.
Well being quite tight (and skint) I opted to do it myself.
Now, I am not very good with computors etc, usually my son has to come round and write everything down for me to follow but I thought, give it a go and hey presto about an hour later it is all installed and working fine, Thats a first for me, to be able to do it without asking for help.
Not a big thing in the scheme of things I know but feel right chuffed. :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D
