I HATE DEALING WITH PEOPLE WHO DON'T UNDERSTAND COMPUTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So... we have a speaker who is giving a PowerPoint presentation. She informs me today that she realized her laptop doesn't have PowerPoint software, so could we find a laptop she can use. The ... how do I say this tactfully ... person I've been dealing with for the big issues had a basic response of &^$# her... well, not with cursing, but that's the general idea. The other person I have to deal with on speaker needs knows about as much about computers as I know about collectibles... well, probably less. She can't even tell me if she has PowerPoint on her computer and has no idea how to check. *rolls eyes*

I keep getting one person telling me that 1) she'd need to load her software on the laptop (NO! If we have a laptop with PowerPoint, all she needs is her presentation on media the laptop can read.) or well we don't know if she needs a PC or Mac (NO! It doesn't matter. If she can put it on CD it can be used on any computer that has PowerPoint! Terry (my 13 year old son!) did this for a presentation at school. Used a PC to create the presentation, presented using a Mac.) or no one will know how to set any of this up it's too complicated (I could talk someone through just about any issue they are likely to run into, or the staff at the location should be able to give them a 5 minute instruction on the specifics.) I've used PowerPoint demonstrations in all sorts of setups from simple to complicated. I KNOW there has got to be SOME way to resolve this issue.... But do they listen to me????

Current Location: In front of my computer (duh!)
