Cable, Internet, Macintosh, OH MY!!!

Ok, so we did it.  Gina and I finally gave into the whole being somewhat "technologically advanced" thing.  Hold your breath and sit down cause I am about to knock your socks off!  Today, this nice man came to the door and introduced himself as the "comcast man."  I let him in and he spent some time doing who knows what while I folded some laundry.  When he was done, he told me we had some thing called cable and that I could now access the. . . i-n-t-e-r-n-e-t?  It took me a while to figure it out, but this is what it boils down to.  1) Our TV now as a bunch of channels vs yesterday when only channel 13 would work. 2) The TV now has a really clear picture instead of being all fuzzy with diagonal lines going through the screen.  3) I can now write this blog from a computer in my own house instead of having to say, drive all the way to my parents house, take the lap top to a nearby parking lot where a wireless signal was available, or go up to the U where the "internet" is everywhere.  That "comcast man" was something special to have done all those things in such a short time.  Anyway,  this being the first post of the "technological Quigley era"  I just thought I would share my thoughts.  Oh and also, now that we have the internet, we went out and bought this fancy new computer.  I have never owned a Mac before and to be honest, I am quite confused with the whole thing.  I was able to figure out how to use the camera that is built into this thing to take some pictures for ya'll

This was my face when I turned on the TV and 
saw that there were multiple channels with such 
a nice and neat picture!  First thing I watched 
Channel 76!  76!!  Wow!




This was my face when I turned on the computer 
and saw that the "internet" was now available
from inside our own house!  This is frickin' amazing!

 


This was what happened when I tried to figure out the 
camera thing on our new mac.  Still don't know what is
going on and how to do things with this computer, but
I'll learn!  How did it take four pictures? It's pretty cool though, eh?

I am so happy for you. Maybe now Gina will actually check her email. Channel 71 is the best!! 76 is good too. Think about people that have like 300 channels (CRAZY), who has that much time to watch so much tv??

Hurray!!!! Channel 76 is the best especially when Samantha Brown visits a place you really want to go. And now you'll stay up until midnight on Wednesday nights watching man vs. wild, something else for us to chat about and go try.

You are so funny! We also got a MAC last year and it was a hard switchover initially but now all I have to say is I will only own a MAC.
