22nd February 2020 Weekend Challenge ‘Surface’.
“The surface of things gives enjoyment, their interiority gives life.” – Piet Mondrian.
This weekend over on Weekly Prompts, the weekend challenge from my partner Gerry Charb (GC) and myself is Surface.
Following the purchase of a replacement wireless keyboard for my All-in-One computer I was thrilled to discover that it came with a thin see-through cover with grooves that matched the keys perfectly.
The Keyboard Cover
Computer keyboards are notorious for retaining and breeding bacteria, and because I am slightly obsessive about cleanliness , I was delighted that the surface of my keyboard would remain spotless, typing was unaffected and the cover could be washed easily.

Staying on the subject of computers – a few weeks ago I installed a new router, and despite my efforts to reconnect, my wireless printer failed to function wirelessly. Then a second problem surfaced; my PC connected wirelessly to the new router without problems, but when wired to the network, it refused to connect and instead searched for the old one. I had other issues too, my TVs and Skybox were not connecting to broadband.
Eventually, following a series of unsuccessful re-boots of everything I could think of, I sent a request to the cavalry.
My tech guy arrived and very soon had the system crash on the Skybox repaired, next, he reconnected a loose connection in the tech cupboard and fixed the TV broadband problem. The computer and printer problems took a little longer, especially the printer, but he got there in the end.
A loose connection – where does one begin in this busy tech cupboard?
And, who knew that Windows 10 had a quirk that prevented a network being renamed!
Ah well, all’s well that ends well, especially when technical normality has been resumed.
