One night in Times Square – All this and an ATM too!

They make it easy to separate you from your money in Times Square no matter where you go or what you may want to purchase but I’ll wait till the banks reopen, thank you!  And this is the end of my one night in Times Square series and a break in the action for awhile – possibly – until things are up and working again.  There was light at the end of the computer tunnel yesterday and then it was snuffed out.  Went to a store, got a computer, go home and DH goes Super Geeky, do all of the setting up and then the mouse and keyboard refuse to work.  UGH!

Go back to store, get refund, go out for dinner and have a Margarita.  The hunt continues…

    Ouch! What kind of computer system are you looking for? I’ve always had great success and luck with Toshiba. I had a laptop for about 8 years (yeah, I know, it’s hard to upgrade). After the monitor (not the computer) finally went out, I now have a Surface Pro, which I run into an external monitor.

    Thank you for sharing your “One Night on Times Square” series! Your photos are wonderful!

      Glad you enjoyed the series. I’ve used desktops for the photography for years and the laptop for showing previews and things like paperwork. DH says going with a setup like yours is how I should go now and he currently has me setup like that until a final solution is arrived at.

        Awesome! I also use an external monitor with my Surface, external keyboard and mouse, too. It works out great for me! I then can take it to work, and goof off, ‘er I mean, be more productive.

        You are a hoot! I just have to be careful with DH setting up things or else my office will look like something out of the movie Minority Report! LOL

        LMAO! Yeah…. good luck with that! Let me know how THAT turns out! It’s a guy thing….

        Don’t tell him I said it was pretty cool to move things between two screens 😉

        I’m sure he’ll add 3! You’re right! I’m sure your office will soon look like the console from Star Trek, soon! Send photos when it’s complete!

    Dell ain’t too bad, especially workstations, Gateway were good back in the day, dunno if they are still going, I had a Fujitsu Seimens which was awesome, if dificult to pronounce after a few beers. I would agree that Toshiba for a laptop. Personally, I don’t like HP. Nice pink square there 😀

      Very nice pink square 🙂 Haven’t had a Dell in forever, Moo was a Gateway and it was good till the end, using Asus now. HP is the printer.

        Then you are very brave 😀

    Things will get sorted out…

      Eventually. It’s just the getting from here to there that is maddening at the moment.

    So frustrating. Sorry to hear. The photo is good though. When in doubt, have a margarita! 🍸

    So computing has gone kerplunk! And as for the photo… You always need $$$$$. Cool series.

    Wow, what type of laptop did you purchase?

  7. #22 by A. Blake on January 24, 2016 - 1:50 pm

    oh, sorry didn’t see it – Asus laptop and HP printer – hubby and son has one of each, I have a refurbished Lenovo and so far so good. good luck!

      So far this combo is working but still have some files to recover.

    That’s first time I saw an ATM machine in a magazine stall! How weird yet creative 😉

    Any luck with the laptop? I hope it gets fixed soon and you can recover all of your can be very frustrating!

    • #25 by imagesbytdashfield on January 25, 2016 - 3:00 pm

      The laptop works it was the desktop that expired 😦 Still working on trying to recover data from it. Have to reload and find product keys for some programs and THAT is frustrating!

      • #26 by Indah Susanti on January 27, 2016 - 6:23 pm

        Oooh…so sorry! Hope all your data is recovered!!

    I think all of New York was built with the idea of separating us tourists from our hard-earned travelers checks — and then they upgraded to ATM machines. Speaking of upgrades, sorry you’re still trying to recover data. Good luck with the rest. An external drive of mine died last Oct. Even after taking it to recovery specialists, all was lost. Luckily, the important stuff was backed up — I think. I hope I never know the truth.

    Wow, that’s an usual spot for an ATM…very interesting! Great photo! 🙂
