Damn computers

I’ve had to deal with my computer not working properly all day today.
I had work, and when I got there, my email programme wouldnt open up.
I reinstalled it, but it still wouldnt open for me.
Eventually, I had to use a different email programme.
I came home, and went on the computer, and eventually I fixed it.
I’ve been using outlook express, which is a very old email programme, but there is a version for windows and thats what I am using.
Anyway, its fixed now, and everything looks ok again.
Thank goodness I was able to still work today, as I had windows livemail on my machine, and so I was able to use that, and get my call list that my supervisor emailed on to me.

Frustration

I’m so frustrated, I can’t get into my email account, I was trying to set it up on my Mac and it wouldn’t set up, then I realised it wouldn’t let me login on my other Windows PC either, or on my phone.

I tried and tried and just got more and more frustrated. So I went and took a shower. I’m done now and still I can’t get into it.

The joys of computers and email. I love them but sometimes they frustrate me to no end.

Conference

We had a great time at the conference yesterday. It was a lovely day.

There were a lot of talks from disabled people who are in employment. There was a talk from a visually impaired girl who used to be a teacher, she actually taught me a few years ago. It was so nice to catch up with her.

There was a talk from a blind accountant. And a guy who worked in the civil service.

And there was a talk from a blind psychotherapist. She gave a great talk on mental health and wellbeing.

It was so interesting. We also had talks from people from our local university, from the disability support office in the university. And there were also people from the local employment service speaking, and a job coach from employability, which I was glad to hear as I am waiting to see a job coach at the moment.

Lunch was provided for us, and in the morning there was tea and coffee and scones and croissants. In the afternoon there were technology demonstrations. I got to see the newest braille display. The orbit its called. I have never owned a braille display before. I dont think I’d like one. I prefer apple products and my laptop.

Overall it was a great day. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be looking forward to giving the NCBI feedback on how the day went.

going to a Conference

I am going to a conference this morning. Its a technology and employment conference, that is organised by the national council for the blind. Its just for visually impaired people. There will be a lot of talks from other visually impaired people, people who are employed, and technology venders, and in the afternoon, there will be demos of adaptive technology aids for the visually impaired. the conference is free of charge, so I thought I’d go to it. We’ll also get lunch while we’re there. I was told there will be around 50 people going. I will probably know most of them.
I am looking forward to it. I will enjoy the tech demos. It will be interesting to see what new things are out there that will make life easier for me as a blind person.
The conference will last from 10 AM until 5 pm. So all day. I’ll write more about it later this evening.
