daily stuff

DSC04450 The other day, I wanted to print up some postcards.

Since we just got a new laptop, there are new programs you need to deal with.

Like WORD, I think they make the newer versions purposely more and more complicated to use.

It doesn't help that everything on our laptop is in Japanese...

So, anyway, I tried to print...

it would only print in the center of an A4 size sheet of paper. (A4 is Japan's version of the US' 8.5"x11")

Since I needed to get these postcards printed, I drew borders onto my A4 size sheet and placed the postcards on one by one to print.

It was tedious and so primitive...

I was upset, I mean how can we have a new laptop and only be restricted to printing on A4 size sheets of paper?!

It didn't help that Satoshi can't help me with the "computer stuff"...

So I surfed around the internet for an answer and realized that I needed to upgrade the printer's software to match the new laptop.

Et voila!

After doing so, I could control the size of the paper and even print in black and white if I wanted to...

Life was good again...

Do you ever have days like this?
