Computers and News Updates

Posted Mar 2 2008, 3:21 am in , ,

I’ve been fighting for the last two weeks with my wireless PC card and Outlook Express. I want my ISP’s email to sync with Outlook Express. Well, it works fine if I dial-in to the ISP, and I do mean dial-in. We’re talking speeds of somewhere between a slug on the sidewalk watching a tree grow. So now I have this wireless card, and I’m off to the races, except Outlook won’t sync. After a couple weeks of fighting with the thing, I have it receiving mail but not sending. I know what’s wrong, it’s finding the right answer that’s sending me off the deep end.

That makes me wonder–how the heck does the average person off the street manage to troubleshoot PCs when those of us in IT often struggle with the things? I’ve spent countless hours on this one problem, which should be easy to fix, but I find the easiest things are often the hardest.

On another note, I have some news:

I sold The Dance, the first manuscript (and the subject of a previous post, “That Special Manuscript”) I ever completed, to Siren Publishing. It’ll be out in late 2008. I’m very excited to see this manuscript in print.

Equestrian Ink debuts on Monday. This is a collaborative effort of several authors who write equestrian fiction. We have tons of fun things planned so drop in every couple days to check us out!!!

    You want me to say how the average person handles PC problems? BA HA HA…we call our friends in IT! Lord, don’t even get me going on how technically challenged I am, but then you already know all about that. 🙂

    I’m so excited The Dance will be published! I can’t wait to read it. 🙂 Congratulations!!!
