    Technology for girls

    I hesitated to google “technology for girls”. I didn’t want to admit that anything would be/should be different for girls. But I see it every day…a typical example is colorful phones; some with tea-cozy like costumes. I should have just typed in technologyforgirls.com—it the idea came to me, then it’s already on the web. Anyway, the site is pink, clean and uncluttered, and friendly. It starts with, “My name is Hilary. I love technology but I know that some girls are not too confident. Most technology information seems to be directed primarily at men. The object of this website is to redress the balance; let us girls have our say!”

    I added RAM today

    You know that memory that allows you to open lots of applications at one time on a computer…the RAM? I swapped my second 256 chip for a 512 chip (not necessarily a smart purchase)…all by myself! I began to panic when I couldn’t get the chip in; took me 15 minutes of gently pushing to realize I had it in backwards. I didn’t break anything and it’s definately  helped run the Adobe suite.

    In addition to adding more RAM, I removed all the music from my hard drive…a bit scary. Now Adobe apps have more hard drive to pull from when doing hard work.
