More technology, more learning-

Well, part of the learning here is that I just can't seem to cut and paste as I would like into this editor. The lesson? Perhaps I should do a lot of my blog writing here.

That, however, is the issue. I am learning to use my Samsung netbook. Small, portable, somewhat limited but great for staying on the Internet and grabbing wifi sites. I want to be able to write in any location, however, not just net linked locations. Blogger is on the net, and so is not a first choice for my editor.

Also, I want to be able to write my novels, short stories, blogs and such anywhere using this nice little machine. So, I must master my software and do a bit of writing.

To initiate my Microsoft Office Suite trial package I had to connect this machine by cable. It went well, but I was not made confident by the necessity. Can I trust it out in the field? Time shall tell.

I tried the Notepad program for plain text editing, copying the text and pasting to Facebook and MySpace. It would not paste here. I had to do a lot of editing in the other editors to finish, and even so the MySpace copy was not well formatted.

I have a lot to learn. I don't mind. Learning is fun. I suspect I will find this little Samsung my constant companion, and the platform for some interesting work.
