Computer Snoopervision

Gosh, I'm breathtaking!
I am having to spend a lot of time snoopervising Mommy and her computer work as we are buying a new computer machine in a few weeks. The one we use now is well over seven years old and it's being held together with bubble gum and spitballs. We have a hard time commenting anymore because this old laptop will freeze up and lose Internet connection if we travel too far or too fast. Mommy has been too cheap thrifty to shell out the green papers for a new one, but even she has lost her patience and she is now researching which laptop to buy for me  herself. One of the chores that I have been assisting with is the transfer of the bazillion photos of me and those other cats (and doggie) that live here off of this machine and onto jump drives. No small feat kitties, it's a lot of time and work to do this the right way. Bad words get used and hurt my ears. So, to re-cap, old computer sux, new computer being researched, hard to visit and comment anymore but this will change, I'm still gorgeous.
Smoochies!
One more look at myself. Stunning!
(What? Doesn't everyone keep a lint roller on their dining room table?)

You are stunning, and will look even more so on a new computer.

Lint rollers are an important part of our decor.

You do look lovely! Good luck with the new 'puter.

You crack us up! :-)

Good luck to your mom re: the laptop. Our mom is lucky that she got hers via her campus computer store--you can pay via payroll deductions for up to 36 months. But there are great deals to be had, tell your mom to check the flyers! BTW, our mom loves her Toshiba, she's on her second Toshiba laptop. Someone she knows just got a really nice HP laptop from Staples for about $500. Great deal!

Mom uses an online computer backup service. It makes it simple to move files from an old computer to a new one. Plus, all my squillions of pictures are backed up in case anything happens to our computer.

You do look mah-velous! Good luck with the new computer, and thank you for the birthday wishes.

Well, we like our Mac Mini. Its not a laptop though...

Random Felines said...

Yep - we are having the same sort of thing - which is why she does most of our posting from her work. She keeps saying she would like a laptop - gonna have to get her computer geek brother to recommend something....but we feel your pain about the pictures. Mom has ours on a separate drive in case of disaster.

Parker, we have lint rollers in every room of the house. Srsly.
Mommy and Daddy each have an external hard drive for their computers. It's saved their bacon (and files!) more than once, well worth the money. Mommy got a terabyte of storage for $89 on sale at Office Depot.

Mommy has a brand new 'puter for a month now.

That's what we like about you Parker, your modesty. Of course we do agree with you. You are breathtaking and stunning.

Miss Parker
YOU are indeed gorgeous and you (or your Mom) will enjoy a new laptop. It will more than makeup for the ding of buying it when you blaze through the internets!

Ha! I certainly keep two lint rollers at arms length most of the time!
Good luck with computer shopping. I bought a Toshiba Satellite last year that is pretty slick, but I'd rather have a Dell.

Mom does not have a lint roller. She gave up and came over to the dark side...where there is plenty of fur!! hahahahahahaha

We just got a new laptop too. The old one was about 4 years old and just would freeze up.

Mum went out to our local puter shop, got an ASUS and it is super fast, lots of memory and big hard drive.

Good luck to your mom with the computer stuff. Our mom says it's no fun at all.
