I know I am new with this blogging thing and not exactly the most tech-savvy girl in cyberspace. I admit I have limitations. I get overwhelmed with words like “widgets” and “wysiwyg”–that is a misnomer– I see nothing! I get my “uploads” mixed with my “downloads” and my “imports” get lost in Asia or someplace. How long is the learning curve? I am convinced kids born in the 80’s were born with a microchip implanted in their brain. (wait, this solves the brain bleeding problem –see brain bleeding post! I solved it!) I was born with disco on the radio and that seemed to go straight to my hips. This is helpful when you hear “YMCA” at a wedding but of no use on the internet.
Okay, so here is the main problem I have with this internet stuff. Cookies. How could they take a word that brings so much comfort to me and use it to describe an internet-related thingy? How? Everytime I see the words “must be cookie enabled” I am overwhelmed with the desire to spend some time with Nestle. I think a British tech must have thought of “magic cookies” — they call theirs “biscuits” –they weren’t worried about mucking up a soothing image! I guess this is one of those “you know your a geek when you associate ‘cookie’ with downloads instead of Oreos.”
(okay this is one of those times when an image/photo would be very helpful…but I am having technical problems!)
