Problem Solved

This is how dachshunds really dig in the garden.

In my last post, I ranted about my new Dell computer and the trouble I was having sending photos using Picasa and Windows Live Mail.

I am happy to report that I have solved the problem – no thanks to the so-called “tech support” at Dell (a total joke).

With help from my husband, I found another email program, Mozilla Thunderbird, which is completely compatible with Picasa, and free! I wanted to continue using Picasa because it automatically sizes the photos for emailing them. I don’t need fancy photo editing software, so Picasa works just fine for me.

So all of you pulling out your hair over Windows 7, just use Thunderbird for emailing your photos. Needless to say, Windows Live Mail is no longer my default email program.

There’s just one thing I fail to understand: why should any of this have happened in the first place? Why do we have to figure out ways AROUND crappy software? Shouldn’t it just be intuitive and simple to use in the first place? And the fact that Dell wanted to charge me for software tech support on a brand new computer (Microsoft sent me to Dell) is disgusting. Really disgusting.

PS. I know the blog looks different these days. The cute worm and bee mysteriously disappeared and it seems I have to cough up more money for a new custom header. Stay tuned for a new look coming soon. In the meantime, I will continue to post as usual, and as always, thanks for reading and for your support!

    Can’t you just upload it again in the custom header section? If you have to pay for that on this wordpress theme, pick another theme. There are so many to choose from.

    Maybe you could use some of those lovely sailboats that we didn’t use on the website!
