Need To Know

I couldn't access my blogger account anymore. I could, however, get to my Gmail, and since they're set up within the same account this was supremely frustrating! I sent off a frantic e-mail to my daughter-in-law for assistance and she telephoned me right away; suspecting it was my browser she put my son on the phone to walk me through the diagnosis and cure. When he learned I was still using Mozilla Firefox he immediately got me started installing Google Chrome, he explained that what I was using had been good... back in 2006! Now, Google accounts are happier using the Google browser; that made sense to me. I asked him why he hadn't advised me to make this change sooner, his response: "you didn't need to know until now". That's the very best way to describe my computer skills (or lack thereof), I'm on the "need to know" plan; and that's absolutely good enough for me.

Life is Good!

There are a lot of things in life that I don't really need to know, or I'm happier not knowing. But it is nice to know that there are people out there who DO know and will help me when I need them.

I've noticed that Firefox has been a bit flaky for me ever since the last update. Maybe it is time to switch.

I like the "need to know" plan! That's a great M.O. I think :) Glad your son was able to help out when you "needed to know".

I moved to Chrome a few months ago and have never looked back. Chrome is good!

A "need to know" basis...thats funmy. Thats probably the same classification a lot of our husbands might be in about fabric purchases!

What a wonderful chuckle and I am going on that need to know plan. Son is in insurance - so why should I know about it - he can handle it. Judy C

I saw on a blogging blog that Blogger apparently had some problems this week anyway. Glad you got it worked out!

I tried Chrome at work and shortly thereafter went back to IE7 (had to do with two particular sites I use for my boss on a multi-times-a-day basis NOT playing nicely with Chrome).

Honestly, it is ALWAYS something!

I moved to Chrome a few months ago. I guess I needed to know before you did!! LOL (Isn't it great to have kids that are so smart!)

Totally cute post. I can so relate. Luckily I got a new computer and it had google chrome already so I avoided that by sheer accident.

You are awesome! I've been having the same trouble so I followed your lead and installed Google Chrome. Now I can get back on my blog too. Yay!

This sounds just like conversations that I have with my children. Glad you got it sorted!

All my firefox problems have been fixed by switching to google Chrome too!

I just want things to work the way they always did. Why change it?!?

Hmmm, well I'm glad you finally 'need to know' cuz I'm in the same place you are---or were----and I'm still using Firefox. Didn't know a thing about Google Chrome til this post of yours'. Guess I need to change our computers around here. Thanks, Mrs. G. :)
