When we came to France ten years ago, I asked the vendor lots of questions. But, the important one I missed was 'does it have fast broadband?' TG it did. Zoom back nearly 30 years ago when my professor first brought in a brand new, sooper-dooper Apple Mac, and introduced the phrase desktop publishing onto my job description (even though I didn't have a clue what it meant.) Sleepless nights trying to work out how to use the infernal machine, staring myopically at the tiny screen. What an embarrassment when the professor you worked for knew more about how to work it than you did! Fast forward to yesterday, here in the wilds of SW France, far away from any English tech support. Because I had to, I overcame my apprehension and managed to: i) create new Amazon and FB Olga Swan and Gillian Green author pages and ii) cope with the fact that my publisher informed us of the unavoidable change of FB rules that required authors to re-create their own FB new event launch pages. How did I get on? Take a look at:
