I discovered that with the new screen reader I received for Christmas, my 5 year old laptop is NOT quite up to the job. Yesterday we started doing research on new laptops, and I ended up with one with about six times the processor speed. I didn't expect this to happen, but so far, I like the laptop. It's very light, and very fast. I discovered half of what I thought was slow internet at home is really my old laptop.
I don't have much else to say now, since I'm still learning things, but I will try to recap some of the last half of a week at some point, and also do a general year-in-review. Now, it's time to see if my philosophy grade is up!
