What’s good for the gosling…..


Morning Everyone!

What’s good for the gosling is good for the goose!

Just a quick anecdote today, since I have a very busy schedule – rest, watch TV, eat lunch, nap, rest from napping, eat supper, etc…..

We got Kayla a small computer for Christmas this year – visualize one step above a netbook and one step below a true laptop – and she loves it.

I had been letting her use my netbook until it crashed a few months ago.  She found the netbook frustrating because it loaded web pages a lot slower than a regular laptop does.  Her Christmas computer is a vast improvement over the netbook, but still is not as fast as a full size computer.  Kayla has a tendency to just keep hitting buttons when the web site isn’t doing what she wants it to do.  While not unusual, this practice is a sure way to give your Internet Browser, or even your computer, a nervous breakdown.  When she gets frustrated, I repeatedly remind her to hit the key once and wait to let the computer catch up with you rather than barraging it with keyboard strokes resembling a Texas-sized hail storm.

This morning, I was checking my work e-mail, and tried to reply to a message.  The window popped up, but my key strokes weren’t registering.  I, of course, persisted in hitting keys repeatedly and at random trying to get the text to enter – until Internet Explorer crashed.

I’m glad that Kayla didn’t see it.  I don’t expect I will share the story with her either!
