A kinda slice

Friday night. I am commenting on slices when the little rainbow wheel starts spinning. I have that problem pretty regularly and usually all I just have to force quit Firefox, open it again and I'm back in business. Tonight, though, that little trick doesn't work. I can't get Firefox to force quit. The little rainbow wheel just keeps spinning.

Finally, I decide if I turn off the computer and then turn it back on, that might solve the problem. I turn the computer off, but when I turn it on again, I have a new issue. The apple comes up in the middle of the screen, and this other spinny wheel comes up,  but that wheel just keeps spinning and spinning. I never get to the main screen. I turn the computer off and on several times, but still no luck.

And so tonight I am slicing on my iPad. I have a brand new iPad and I am not very good with it yet. I have fat fingers. I do not have a keyboard. I do not know how to post an image, so the slice symbol is not here.

On Monday, I will take my laptop, which actually belongs to my school, to the computer teacher. I hope he will fix it. In the meantime, I am posting this kinda slice because it's the best I can do.

Argh-hate that spinning rainbow. Hope the tech person can do an easy fix. Sorry, Carol!

I totally understand the feeling of typing on an ipad. I got a keyboard to go with mine. You may want to check this out:

Have you tried using a Chrome Browser? I defected from Firefox a few months ago because I couldn't stand how often it skipped out on me.

It definitely might be time to switch to Chrome. Way better than Firefox in many, many ways. Also, that spinny on your start-up screen means your computer is sorting out files and fixing things. Best to just let it run until it finishes. Every once in a while I have to zap my P-PRAM to get things back in line.
Of course, I'm married to a computer guy, so I have tech support whenever I need it.

Good luck!

Blogging on the iPad is tricky, isn't it? It seems to be harder with blogger on the iPad than with wordpress, I notice. Good for you for getting your slice up despite all odds!

I hate the spinning and I think that I am either getting a new laptop or adding a key board to the i-pad. You do not have fat fingers...the i-pad is just super skinny!
