new comp

well i have a new comp. with 2 GB ram and 1 TB of HD space. its windows 7 and at times really irritating--esp when the keyboard misses letters i know i hit. the default browser is Google chrome. Which underlines in red every single word it doesn't like!

IE ether won't work or won't remember any passwords or keep me logged in. So i guess i put up with the red lines.

only other thing i don't like it the icons in the task bar. I liked my named windows. Not one generic icon for word, or the IM and piled on top of each other if i have multiple windows open.

there must be a fix for that but i'm blowed if i can find it. Still looking for the single click and snap to options. And the delete browsing history button on Google chrome.

on the plus side...the comp set itself up. Ok i had to plug it in and switch it on :P, but it did the rest itself. I just had to give it a name and tell it what language i wanted to use.

one spooky thing... the desktop changes itself every 6 hours. …

Today I have author Tracy Krauss on my blog, talking a little about her new novel My Mother the Man Eater and a lot about herself, due to my infamous interview :)

CR. How did you come up with your premise? Is there a story behind your book? How did the story evolve?

TK. This is almost embarrassing to admit, but the inspiration for this book actually came from playing the Sims. Yeah, I know ... all your serious readers have now logged off! I had created this household of women and corresponding ‘interesting’ males and was busy playing away when a story began forming in my head. It wasn’t long before I abandoned the game and started the ‘real’ interaction on paper!

CR. For those who are not familiar with this story, would you please give us the blurb?

TK. It’s the story of a forty-something ‘cougar’ whose search for meaning in life finds an unexpected outlet - God. Joleen Allen, the main character, has a penchant for attractive younger men, and is on the hunt. Unfortunately, every time sh…
