    An epic story for the day....

    MY EPIC STORY FOR THE DAY, I thought this was a genius idea. Went into Boots with SDCard only to find the photo machines wouldnt read SD Card, so we thought dammit. Anyway went to pound shop to get some blank CD's to go to the library to find SD Card reader to copy from card to CD and put the CD In the machines, anyway the library PC's didnt have a reader. SO... Went to Tesco to try there machines and same result wouldnt read SD Card and also would not login to facebook to print photos direct from FB. SO we think dammit... But then my brain switched into "Teccie" Mode, went to the laptop section, found an unlocked laptop with WIndows 8, put in memory card and viola up come the photos - very quickly grabbed a blank disc (from the pack I bought from pound shop), I must say at this point Tesco had disabled all the touchpads on the laptops so had to do this via keyboard, opened explorer.exe via run, scrolled down using arrow keys ... Selected all (CTRL+A) and hit the right click button, Burn Data to CD...... Hit that - up comes Nero I hit next and burnt the disc, this was the quickest disc burn ever known to man kind... it needed to be this was a display laptop, and I was expecting someone to say "Can I help you sir" but no one luckily... anyway disc finished burning ... closed Nero and Explorer, ejected card and disc, and went over to photo machine,,,, up come the photos and hit Print....

    Saved me a trip home to burn a disc, thanks Tesco.
