IN ADDITION TO STRUGGLING WITH A CLOGGED, NON-WORKING LOO (TOILET) FOR OVER 4 WEEKS, ONCE AGAIN, COMPUTER PROBLEMS WITH THIS WOW TELIKIN COMPUTER...DON'T EVER PURCHASE ONE!!!!

I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND AND WILL FORGIVE ME.

MOST IMPORTANT: YOU HAVE MY PRAYERS AND ALL MY BEST, BEST WISHES THAT EACH OF YOU ARE HEALTHY, GETTING YOUR BIG JABS (VACCINE...I STILL HAVEN"T) AND ARE NAVIGATING THROUGH THESE CHALLENGING TIMES.

TODAY IS FRIDAY, MARCH 5th. SENDING EVERYONE MY VERY BEST HOPES AND WISHES THAT YOU'LL HAVE ENJOYMENT THIS WEEKEND.

Hi Sophie,

Sorry about your computer problems. Hope it gets fixed soon! 🌞❤️ Yoo Hoo when's this huge warm up hitting the Northeast? Lol 🤣

That'd sure be nice.

How 'bout joining in the chant with me?

Snow, snow, go away

Don't come back another day

(Not until next year anyway.)

C'mon! Everybody:

Snow, snow, go away

Don't come back another day...

There's no snow here Sophie surprisingly. We didn't get as much as you did

So I'll say

snow snow stay away!

SNOW, SNOW FOREVER STAY AWAY!!!! Or, picture this: HUGE March snowstorm. 10' tall with 20' drifts. My doorbell rings!!! I open the door...who could it be??? A CUTIE PETUTTI young, young, man. "Hi there!! I'd really enjoy shoveling out your car; clearing off the snow on your car...you're seemingly such a dear, sweet older...OOPS...SLIGHTLY older lady!!!"

"Knock yourself out, Cutie...then come on in for some hot chocolate and a nice long chat!"

Oh, Sophie! Why is your thermostat set so high? I just have to take off my shirt, it's so warm in here... You don't mind, do you???

Pregnant pause whilst hot chocolate brews...

warmer weather very near for me - supposed to be in 60's next week!!!!

(music) we're having a heat wave.... (don't know more words - you'll have to fill in.... :) )

sophie4 in reply to 13ga

I'll believe it when I feel it...although, I don't thaw out until mid-July!!!!

Luna_Child
Luna_Child in reply to sophie4

Aww Sophie you'll thaw. Have the hot chocolate

sophie4
sophie4 in reply to Luna_Child

Maybe a rumor...maybe I had a dream...maybe my deep down to the ocean's bottom wish...supposedly, warmer weather begins the beginning of next week!!! BUT...this is what the forecast is for where I live, Luna_Child!! Not sure about what will happen in your neck of no leaves on the trees, cold, probably wet, woods & trails.

Best luck!!

It'll be warming up here too. Dogs need to get out.

Hello from fellow sufferer of the PC blues! It's great I still have a computer that is running, but I know all about a glitchy and the stress it brings.

My computer is a resource to amuse and distract me from various health problems. So, with my hands, wrists, and arms aching, I deal with relentless warning pop-ups that demand acknowledgement: Warning this, and do you want to fix that. (Well, ya, I do... but it won't let me.) It either freezes -- forget ctrl + alt + del, it sneers at that -- or crashes completely every couple days.

I'm desperate to get a new one, but even though I'm trying to Google "How to pick your new computer", I don't understand a word.

As for woo-hoo, 'round here NOAA promises cold, snow, and uh... more snow. Woo-hoo.

But if you can end on an up note, I will try too also. I found roast chicken bones with a little bit of meat on them in the fridge, and now it's boiling on the back of the stove! Nature's prescription! Yum! (Unless the skin was oversalted... didn't taste the broth yet. Oh, well. I'll see.)

Yum, yum, YUMMY...OOPS...NOW I WANT SOME!!!! RIGHT NOW.!!!! I'll sip and chew as I CHANT!!!!!!

Something important I recently learned!!! Confirmed by extensive research!!!! Please consider REFURBISHED computers!!!! Less expensive, many options.

I plan to win the lottery this weekend. So....we'll chat, after the BIG WIN...have fun choosing two FANTASTIC COMPUTERS!!!! We'll have FUN!!! We'll make a list of how we'll celebrate!!!

But, IF YOU CAN'T WAIT UNTIL MY HUGE WIN....check out chromebooks.

sophie4
sophie4 in reply to sophie4

Check out CLEARANCE Chromebooks...Amazon OUTLET. E-Bay. Also, Chromebooks and clearance Chromebooks from WalMart...they ship everywhere!!!..Check out Best Buys. Oh...check out regular Amazon as well as Amazon Outlet.

BEST OF LUCK!!!!!!!!!!

Unfortunately I still can't figure out what the heck I need.

I haven't been able to force myself to just get something random. I guess I may do just that this weekend (if the money is straightened out).

Who needs a list to plan how to celebrate? Not me. Send that snow-shoveling cutie on by, and I'll warm his hot chocolate pronto. 😂

OK!!!! He's on his way!!!! LOL!!

👍

Just finished doing some research....here's what I found:

VERIZON: SAMSUNG CHROMEBOOK; $0 NOW; $25.22/mo for 24 months

Amazon: HP Chromebook; $211.18; Samsung Chromebook; $159.89 (free shipping);

Dell Chromebook; $139.99 (free shipping). Checked many others...these are some of the best deals I've found. If you haven't considered a Chromebook, please do so. Have used in the past, easy to get use to...loved it.

So...stupid, silly, impulsive me...found this DUMB 'WOW' computer...hooked by monthly payments.

Sophie: HU is having bad issues for a while now; the computer problems you're having at our site are shared by others. (See my last post & responses.)

Love you ❤️🫂

Glad to hear you survived your ordeal,my router lights keep flashig,nevermind its behaved all afternoon,glad to hear your weathers improving dont want a snowy Easter-are you there mJoan Armatradings profiles on tv just now -saw her once-do you like her?

sophie4
sophie4 in reply to goldieoldie

Which ordeal??? The loo? The ordeal of having a rebellious computer?? There are always so many on-going ordeals...like CHANGE, of any kind, throws me for a loop!! I'd probably be crying, upsetting my dear fur kids, feeling oh so guilty for ever having had a cranky thought, much less sharing my up-set with the lovely, patient people from our Forum-Family...and I'm writing about my courageous COMPUTER!!...the poor tiny guy living inside, in such cramped quarters, trying so mightily to address all the glitches!!! And, Goldie? Just think...I want to replace this computer for a brand new one??? Too, too much CHANGE!!!!

Oh no!!! What if I miss this winter's snow? The CHANGE in weather may cause me to trip...take a nasty fall!!!

Do you ever feel this way?

Hi Goldie,

Hope your connection fixes up soon. I remember when no one had heard of the internet, but it sure is a headache when it disappears now!

Sure is,hasnt happened for quite some time and normally,I would be OTT about it,just hoping it stays like that ,have you had your PCprobs too=hope yours is sorted-not sure mine is..lol

Thanks. Can't be soon enough. Congratulations on keeping your stress level down. I do my best, but don't always succeed. 🦜

I wonder if Tara can assist with Behavior Modification? See Mommy freaking out -- bite! Whadda ya think? Have I got a plan?

Yep,I reckon you have a good destress model there in Tara,most animals can understand their owners emotions,maybe even better than we can ;;my little cat passed 2yrs this month she was only 6yrsboydid my whole body go into complete panic,the wee soul took a stroke---I have got over it she was sent for to learn lessons and I will never forget her and what I learnt from her;;;;🦁🐶🐕🐕‍🦺

I am so sorry for your loss. We can learn so much from our animal companions if we allow them to teach us. Some people think we're foolish, being hurt when an animal we've grown attached to dies. I guess they're entitled. I have experienced that loss, and it is terrible.

Absolutely.I doubt if I can take on another cat ,unless it looks for me as the other did.

You're so brave to even consider bringing home another.

Do you have pictures of your "little cat"? I'd enjoy seeing her if you can post one.

I tried with a mobile and had her on video,but theres not one that I can get to see her as I would want -----Im not brave,deep in my heart I will know what I should do,I have had 2 cats before her ---and ----it wont be something I would take on lightly,especially since Im considered elderly,but very young at heart,thankyou for asking!!have you always had a dog,?

I had a dog a while back, but when he suffered and died due to throat cancer I lost part of myself. I couldn't look at a dog for a very long time. My dear Tara is a green-cheeked parakeet. (See avatar.)

Yes so sorry for your loss ,its quite a traumatic experrience--that wee bird is a real beauty and has a glint in its eye ,spells trouble ,I thought Tara was a dog,dont know where that came from-I do like birds a lot,always though Id get a parrot many moons ago lol🥰

Oh my gosh! You are right on the money! She is a beauty... but oh boy! is there a glint in that wee eye. I knew nothing about parrots before I bought her home, but I have since been instructed by a very strict teacher! 😬 🦜

Its not so much a glint,but its not happy about taken its photo,bet it can chatter away, im always amazed not just the different colours but their ability to mimic is that the proper description,🙂❤️

My baby does not use human speech, but I have learned an amazing number of parrot "words". I had no idea how many things birds communicate with the variety of sounds they produce, but I have gradually learned.

No, "mimic" is not accurate. Many birds are able to reproduce human speech, but it has been conclusively shown they are not mindlessly repeating sound without meaning. Check out Alex and Me by Dr. Irene Pepperberg if this subject interests you at all. It's a wonderful book about the relationship that developed between Dr. Pepperberg and her African Grey parrot "Alex".

Or check out this documentary on crow intelligence:

youtube.com/watch?v=zGYII1X...

Thankyou for that educational video,its great to know how birds animals survive in this overwhelming human jungle,their intelligence astounds me...!!!and your ability to navigate on pc as well as knowledge also keep on being informative..

I'm happy you enjoyed it!

For Sophie..... a very special lady.🙂

hi sophie;

sorry to hear about your computer troubles...

i don't know much about the telikin personally - but i DO know it's supposed to have a really good operating system...

what kind of problems are you having?

Hey! Our resident computer geek!

at your service! :)

Morning! 🦜

and GM back @ u!! how u?

I took some pills: Tylenol + caffeine, and it's like a miracle! Two days of a headache from hell diminished to a dull throb. I'm worried about tonight though. I dasn't take caffeine near bedtime. Can you see me climbing the walls around 3 a.m.?

youtube.com/watch?v=iI8zPbE...

omg - i sure can see you climbing the walls!! but i wouldn't recommend it to you!!! wall climbing can b really tough on your body - and especially hard on the walls!!! :-)

.

and HEL!L yes!!! that should be our theme song!!!!!!

sophie4 in reply to 13ga

Hey you!! How are you???

Crazy stuff, like all of the sudden, out of the blue, little tiny dashes, traveling backwards, wipe out each letter of every word I've written (probably saying.."Shut Up!!!")...or, KABOOM...the scroll bar flies up and down, up and down, fluttering throughout the trip! Or, there I sit, (desk-top), typing my wishing words, trying to offer solace, some help..POOF!!! All the words disappear, the screen is blank-white.

OH WOWEE!!! It's my Goldie!!!!

Glad you (may have) laughed (just a little??? Or did you REALLY have a chuckle?).

Goldie dear,

Here's the scoop...my sister just left to have a visit with her beloved grandchildren. This means I can VACUUM (she hates the sound), and REALLY DEEP CLEAN!!! Isn't that fabulous..isn't that grand??? EXACTLY, precisely, how I planned to spend my 'golden years'...HA!! I challenge a 20 year to keep up with me!! And, all the while, singing to my pups, offering treats, doing the laundry...oh yeahhhh...MULTI-TAXING!!! Yep...not just MULTI-TASKING. UCH!!!!!

Wish I could spend time with you right now!!! Maybe, hopefully, we'll have a chat later!! Are we in the same time-zone? Country!! All this time, and I've never asked you...I'm in the USA..EST.

Where ever you are, try to enjoy your day!!!! goldieoldie..turn on those GOLDIEOLDIE'S, roll up your jeans, kick off your shoes and DANCE!!! Dancing ALWAYS throws out any sad blues!!!

Your pal,

Sophie

hi sophie;

i'm hanging on... dealing with a lot of hardships, and sadness... but tryin to stay positive.. how've you been faring? (outside the technical pains :-| )

.

as for what you've described... the problem sounds like hardware issue(s)... i know the operating system on that device - and it's pretty rock solid - and that also has me thinking toward hardware.

as i said - i'm not familiar with their hardware - so i don't know anything about their failure rates, or service policies. but it appears to be a pad-form factor computer (unless you have the notebook) - which is likely difficult to be serviced outside the manufacturer - and they probably just do full swap-outs...

.

NUMBER 1 recommendation - before anything else - backup your stuff!!! all of their current models support USB ports where you could plug in external storage to back your stuff onto. also - there's the possibility of using cloud storage for backup - such as dropbox or google-drive.

.

after you have all your stuff safely backed up... you can check out your options. if youre out of warranty - they may offer a 'flat-rate swap-out' where they might charge 10-20% of full replacement cost to give you a refurb'ed replacement.

.

how did you like the device prior to its giving you headaches ?

did you find it easy to use, and understand?

did it live up to your expectations?

Oh, I'm so, so sorry. We could (don't like the word 'should') be talking about the sadness and many hardship..NOT the silliness of my computer ills. BORING. Will try to talk tomorrow. But going to the Vet. My poor dog.

Thank you for the kindness you've so graciously extended. I've reserved 'Computers for Dummies'...apply myself more than constantly complaining.

OH NO!

i'm sorry to hear your dog's having problems....

what's going on?

sophie4
sophie4 in reply to 13ga

It isn't at all fair. I have the ability to learn. And I have the resources although it's difficult because the library is closed and has been for almost..no..it has been a year.

I have a glossary with another book. I'll memorize everything . Will report back to you with my progress!!
