Back!

I'm back! My HP laptop died. It kept trying to turn on but kept turning off and trying again. It also has NVIDIA graphics problems. I got mail about that chip. I'll get it fixed but needed something now for my part-time job grading assignments for the CWHS Virtual High School. I bought a cute little 10" Acer Aspire One netbook for just $240. It's going to be great to take places with me. The 17" HP was a bit unwieldy for that. Mine's dark red.

Sorry to read of your HP.
Congratulations on your new purchase!

I might be getting an Acer netbook myself soon, too.

How cute is that!!!! I thought about getting a netbook but ending up getting an iPad instead, since my laptop is pretty small anyway! Enjoy!! Now we have to plan a trip together so you can take it along!

So far it's not letting me play Scrabble on FB. It won't load the game. That's a disappointment. I'll get the HP fixed and buy a MacPro eventually.

A trip! Yes!

Scrabble on FB is an app, correct?

That might be a third party issue, not your N/B.

It looks cute.
I want one!

Dear Auntie Flame -

From what I've heard about your text conversations with Maddie, I didn't think you'd settle for 10 inches!!

XOXOXOXO

NG, it's an app on FB and always worked on my other laptop. It lets me play Family Feud on FB. Don't know.

Joy said...

It is cute, Bob. And oh so portable!

LOL, David!! Funny how size is relative, isn't it? xoxoxxo

I'm not on Facebook, and I don't know anyone who plays Scrabble, so I can't help you out. Given that Scrabble has a page, I would suggest leaving a comment and asking them.

The only thing I can think of is that when you added the app on your HP, they placed a tracing cookie thingy or something; Now that you're using the Acer, the Scrabble app doesn't recognize you.

Family Feud appears to be from another app developer.
