Congratulations! It's A Toshiba!

I may need to find a mouse yet, (I've never been great with the "touch pad" thingy) and my pinkie finger appears to be too short to hit the "shift" button, (nearly every "capital" letter I've tried to make has been a "\" sign first)

But, other than needing to familiarize myself with the new keyboard, the Toshiba lap top Randall brought home for me yesterday is wonderful!


As long as I get the hang of the shift and enter keys pretty quickly. If I don't it will be a great annoyance... hmm... I wonder if it writes in French... the keyboard seems to be bilingual... I don't suppose there's a manual somewhere... probably hidden in an ambiguous file...

Oh, well.

It's up and running, and that's the fabulous thing.

And it's 9:00, so I think I will tear myself away from BBC Radio 4 to see who's on the Graham Norton show tonight.

Ta ta for now.


  1. It took me a while to get used to the laptop keyboard. I think that the shift key will just take some practice. Congrats on a new computer :)

  2. And the enter key seems to be further away, too. I like it though. Yay for a new computer! :)

  3. You can install the French language in your language settings. Choose Canadian French since that is what the keys should be set up for. At the bottom of the screen there is a little language icon and that is where you should be able to switch them.

  4. Congrats on the new laptop. At least he had the decency not to dump the apple on you and escape back to the reliability of windoze.
