Low Tech Grandma

Fish Don't Climb Trees

Oh, Happy Day!  Queue the Edwin Hawkins Singers! I am thrilled to pieces that I was finally able to install my old FrameMaker version 6 software on my new mini PC! If you’ve read my recent blog post, you’d know that I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time searching for a new journaling software [...]

Jackery

About a year ago, I purchased a 240-watt Jackery power station. I bought it to keep me powered up during my van travels. With having a laptop, tablet, and iPhone, I wanted something that would adequately charge the devices. Whether I went camping, picnicking in the park, or just hanging out in the yard, the [...]

Bluetooth

I must be the last person on earth to realize I could transfer files between computers by using the Bluetooth option. This is a true smack my forehead moment. You wouldn’t believe all the machinations I went through to transfer files from my old computer to the new mini PC. I’d upload them to Google [...]

Amazon Fire TV Storage

I finally did it! I finally moved apps from my almost maxed out Amazon Fire TV to a USB flash drive. This is something I had been wanting to do for so long but thought the process was way too involved and complicated. All I needed was the right teacher and viola, Bob’s my uncle! [...]

Journaling Software Search

Recently I’ve been spending time searching for a program to replace FrameMaker as my journaling software. In my last post, I explain why. My old FrameMaker version 6 won’t work together with my new Windows 10 Pro mini PC (I give more details in an earlier post). My attempt to install the old program generates [...]

iClever Package

My fingertips are dancing across yet another keyboard. Yes, I’m still testing portable keyboards and I think this one, made by iClever, is a keeper. I returned the last one because it just didn’t work for me. This one, however, seems to have everything the other keyboard was missing (with 2 small exceptions). What You [...]

Samsers Box

I’ve been testing all sorts of things lately. This Low-Tech Grandma is having a ball. This time around, I decided to try using a portable keyboard. After all, I purchased a min PC and portable monitor, why not a portable keyboard to complete the trio. The keyboard I’m testing now is the Samsers wireless mini [...]

Old Software – New PC

What to Do?

After purchasing a new mini PC, I needed to install all of the software I had on my old PC on the new one. Everything went smoothly except for two programs, NaturallySpeaking and FrameMaker. The NaturallySpeaking issue was self-inflicted, but the FrameMaker problem is called, out-with-the-old-and-in-with-the-new. Here’s My Story I thought I was done with [...]

Zissu's Portable Monitor

Now that I have a mini PC, I decided to test things a bit by purchasing a portable monitor to go along with the mini PC. I wanted to see how easy or difficult it would be to take my computer on the road. After researching online and reading reviews, I purchased the Zissu’s portable [...]

The Beelink Mini PC has helped me in my attempt to minimize things around the house, I’ve been looking for items that serve more than one purpose and don’t take up a lot of space. During my recent projector search, I stumbled across a thing called a mini pc. For years I had tried to [...]
