Tech Woes

I've only posted once in the past week.  It's not because I'm lazy, it's because my computer has been going bonkers for the past week.  Since Friday, the computer hasn't stayed on for more than 30 minutes.  Most of the time it doesn't turn on and when it does, it shuts down minutes later while I'm in the middle of something.  Mega frustrating.

After dealing with this for a week, I headed out to Best Buy and bought a new laptop yesterday.  It's a Toshiba Satellite like our old one so it was easy to get used to.  Still, I hate getting new computers and having to reload/download all your favorite programs and whatnot.  Transferring my files has been the biggest pain.

Anyways, I'm back up and running now.  And you'll be proud to hear that I also got a new camera!  After almost three years of horrible pics on the blog, I finally upgraded to a Sony Cybershot DSC-H20.  I've only used it a few times so far but it's so much more advanced than my old clunker camera.  Tonight, I'm going to build a lightbox to shoot some product images in for Vintage 528.  The current pictures are horrible!  I got the directions from an Etsy blog post.  I've never used anything of the sort before but it's supposed to disperse the light more evenly and help amateur photographers like me look a little more professional!  I'll let you know how it goes.
