An early start this morning, as it was over to Mags’ to sort out her PC, helping her to switch email providers from Virgin to Microsoft. She was also waving goodbye to the ageing Windows Live Mail and moving to the sparkly new Windows 10 Mail.
Luckily, Mags had been able to do quite a bit of the preparation beforehand by pruning her existing data, so it was more of a case of me ensuring all the right files were in all the right places! A great start in that all the account data behaved itself and it synced first time with its cloud equivalent.
It was all going pretty smoothly until I tried to import Mags’ ‘old’ address book – the exported file, when imported into the People App refused to ‘see’ any of her email addresses, even though all the other people details were clearly visible. A bit of head-scratching and a bit experimenting resulted in me renaming the offending Excel csv header and we were sorted!
In just inside three hours, everything was up and running! I think that’s a personal best!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
