Progress to an extent

I found a little doohickey that will allow me take pictures on my camera and load them to WebShots without having the Kodak Easy Share Software installed AND without losing my picture files! This means that I can still take pictures and upload them and post them without my laptop so I can continue with my Giveaway month, the most important thing going on right now in the whole wide world! ;)

This was an $8 find at WalMart this morning. It's an external memory card reader with an extra USB to USB cable. Heck, I will even be able to take my memory card into the office and load my pictures to WebShots from there. Woo hoo!

Last night, I was able to use my antiquated desktop (seriously, this thing is like 9 or 10 years old! And SLOW!!!) to catch up on some emails and blog reading. After that, I watched Couples Retreat while trimming up scraps. That movie was hysterical!!

Today, my plan is continue on my To Do list for the weekend and hopefully get a few more things crossed off. I'd like to start cutting into the fabric that I pulled out for the giveaways so that I can show something busted tomorrow. OH, and pictures! Must take pictures! :)

Isn't technology wonderful?! Glad you found that nifty gadget and glad the old computer lets you post. We miss you when you are computerless. Have a great weekend, get lots done and take lots of pictures!!

Handy little gadget isn't it - I was never so happy as when I discovered that I could take the card from my camera, plug it directly into my laptop, and load the pics straight into my files - no cords, no Kodak (or Nikon as of just a month ago). I have a card reader too, but could never figure out how to use it LOL. Enjoy the ease and the fun - looking forward to more pics!

Great find! 9-10 computers years is like 70-80 in human years...you wouldn't be going too fast either. LOL
