Changing computers

I was old fashioned and out of date, my computer reminded me every single day….dripping annoyingly like a leaky faucet…..drip – You’re out of date….drip – you can’t use that feature until you are up to date.  FINE.  Yes, I mean the all caps kind.  Freaked out, Insecure, Neurotic, Emotional.  Fortunately we are in the…
