Hi all, i hope life is treating you fairly ..
I could not believe it .. we actually got some money back from the tax man and it was a fair sum too, enough to invest in a tablet. We decided to go for an IPad2 as we already use a Mac, Sharon my partner loves to use the computer in the evenings and loves the idea of sitting in a comfy chair whilst going online and i want to use it instead of my Samsung laptop for my reference pics while i work. My son is jumping up and down like a lunatic about it too and thinks he's going to get to use it for games "Ha .. unlucky Dan". Anyway we got a good bargain or so i thought. We paid £400 for it and it's very nice .. except i can't use it!! First .. we are not wireless, second .. my operating system is too old to talk to the tablet so we had to upgrade our internet connection and then i have to upgrade the Mac which is adding another £100 or so. This has p***ed me off to say the least and i'm not looking forward to fitting everything together as i'm useless at doing that sort of thing. I might as well invested in some good quality photo printing paper and be done with it and spent the rest on art materials .. but saying that, Shaz will be able to surf and chat and play her games while i am on DA and i'll finally have decent reference images to use and Dan can go stomping back to his xbox to play his games. So if i disappear for a while it's probably because i'm made a right mess in installing the wireless router .. wish me luck
Isn't it funny how getting money back works out more expensive in the long run!
