A slight obsession with books

Crafts, cats and books

Too fond of books update #1


I haven’t done much stitching lately due to my painful thumb making it hard to hold the needle but I have made a bit of progress on this and have a little row of books appearing.

It was touch and go whether I managed to upload a photo or not. The laptop is playing up again. Two weeks ago it refused to switch on at all and I spent two days persuading it that it would be in its best interests to cooperate. I’m not sure if it was the thinly veiled threats or my limited techy skills that saved the day, but something worked which is all that matters.

Over this weekend it developed problems with three things. First it refused to access my webmail for around 36 hours, plus it kept saying one piece of software couldn’t see the internet when clearly I was connected. A system restore fixed those problems but not the third problem. Photoshop Elements is acting up. I can load the Organiser and look at my photos, but I cannot load the Editor as when I do, I get a runtime error and it closes straight down again. It is very frustrating as I have no idea how to fix it. I shall have to consult Google, methinks.

In the meantime, I had to use the photo editing thingy that came with Windows and it is dire compared to Elements. I do not like it at all. Not in the slightest. So, there’s an incentive to fix Elements then.

  1. I had to use Picasa before on holiday once. I liked it much better than the Windows thing but it was hard to get used to after Elements.
    Always good as a backup though so thanks for reminding me about it 🙂


  2. I see you’ve fixed Pse but thought I would mention Picasa. It’s free, and will do basic photo exciting. I use it loads when I just need to crop or lighten something.
    I also really like the way you can scroll through all your photos.


Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to leave a comment - I love to read them.
