Foggy and warm this morning.
Yesterday started out real nice actually. It was cloudy but the temperature had risen considerably since the day before. We were out quite early (like always :-) ) and I got some real good photo´s on the mountine. Small clouds were stuck here and there like big cottan balls blown in there by the wind. Waterdrops were falling from the trees and birds were singing.
After having breakfast and reading the morning paper I drove to Lidköping. I was a bit early and had plenty of time. There were almost no traffic, to late for those working and to early for those driving around with caravans on their vacation. I came to the store just when they had opened it and met this young girl that really knew what she was talking about when it came to cameras. I decided to order the Nikon D3000 and then all problems started :-)
No problem ordering the camera, that took about ten seconds, but I decided to get a membership card so I can pay for the camera how fast or slow as I wish (I do need other things like a washing mashine, freezer/refridgerator and tomorrow Orvar is getting x-rayed, it might be that he needs surgery and that´s not cheap). When applying for that membership card everything went wrong :-) :-) She got a code telling that something was wrong and no matter what she tried it refused to tell us what it was. So she called the headquartes and it seemed that I already had a membership card??!!
Here are some phot´s of houses in Lidköping. They are all placed in one block and I think many of tyhem once were one family houses, but nowdays I think that they all are appartement buildings.
There were people walking all over the place, but I managed to take photo´s without getting to many of them on the photo´s :-)
I did fill that form in my computor, but thought I had aborted it since I had a feeling it would be better doing it at the store. So then all had to be deleted and made all over again. Funny enough their computor system didn´t cooperate at all so nothing happened. Finally they had to do it from the head quaters but nothing showed on the compuer at the store. I also had to sign a paper showing I wanted this and that didn´t work either. So they tried to fax it to the store. Guess what?? It never arrived :-) :-) :-) Well, the camera is ordered and I´ll sign the papers when I go there to get it. I do have a memebership card, but I just don´t have it in my wallet :-)
The water tower.
When I came home I started my computor and something happens. A message was shown saying: The computer has to be inconsistency checked. Have no idea what that means but it did so anyway :-) After that I couldn´t reach my own desktop any more! So I tried to go back to a date I know the computer worked as it should, after that nothing worked :-) :-) So I called to the company that I bought it from not long ago. I must say that every one was helpful, understanding and very polite. But not many of them knew what they were talking about :-) After several hours I finally got the telephone number to Hewlett Packard. The young man I talked to there looked at the code I´ve gotten from the computer when it broke down. That code meant: Catastrophic failure! :-):-):-) First we tried to do some smaller adjustments but that didn´t work so finally he guided me so I could reformat the hard disk. Now it works once again (cross Your fingers and hold Your thumbs) but all photo´s from yesterdays morning walk are gone (and all other photo´s I had too) and all blog adresses I had is also gone. So If You don´t hear from me in a while it´s just because I have troubles finding You again.
