Too much technology

Sometimes technology is not such a good thing. Being married to a computer geek does not help. But, if I was not married to this totally cute computer geek for 31-ish years I would not have an iPad2. Which I am totally in love with (maybe not quite as much in love with as with my hubbie of 31-ish years).

Nor would our remote cabin have internet access.

Here is where technology + remote cabin internet access which includes a lot of cabin-to-satellite beaming stuff happening + two freaking iPads + one laptop computer all vying with each other for space gets a bit dicey.

We take all this high-tech stuff from a remote place all in stride. Maybe too much so.

Today I must have tried at least 30 or more times to post my blog entry about Dick the Tree that I wrote early this morning. It just would not post. Not happening. Always an error about uploading photos.

Rick scratched his head and thought about it. We tried various things such as only uploading the post with only one photo. Didn’t work.

Finally, the light bulb went off in Rick’s head. My iPad was still photo stream enabled (I am asking Rick all these technical terms since I haven’t a clue), and iCloud was trying to keep all my photos in sync between my iPad here and the computer at home (because they are all linked together like one big happy computer family) and it was trying to keep up with and send all the photos I’ve taken so far to that big iCloud in the sky.

Eureka! The minute he turned off photo streaming, Dick the Tree was published. Success!

My husband might be a computer geek but he is also brilliant!

He took some amazing slow-mo cines (movies) of hummingbirds both yesterday and today. Hummingbirds doing things (like scratching themselves) you would never see with the naked eye. This camera rocks!

He also took a few of the dogs running towards him; one of Bella which is hilarious!

We hope to upload at least one those in the next couple of days.

But, I guess that all depends on our computer/cloud/satellite connection. Fingers crossed and photo streaming disabled.

Hmmm…I don’t really know how iClouds work, but I completely agree that technology is both a blessing and a curse!
