I spent my day in the school library using their computer because my PC is faulty, and I really need to submit chapter 1-3 of my thesis to my supervisor. So as not to lose any of my documents and for them to be accessible easily, I have been saving to my onedrive (online storage). The computers in the library don’t have microsoft word installed, they have wordpad. Hence I had to use word online, which worked superbly. However I noticed I could highlight a text but couldn’t click on cut, copy or paste, it prompted me to use the shortcut keys. I have been using a computer since 2002 when cybercafes became popular, i even took a course in desktop publishing that same year, where we learnt about microsoft word, corel draw and others, I literally became a tech freak and fell totally in love with information technology. BUT do you know, I never knew the shortcut key for “CUT”. I remember always asking myself what it is but I never for once googled for a answer. Today I learnt something new. I learnt the keyboard shortcut key for ” cutting a selected text” is “control x”. I also learnt something else, having a basic knowledge and understanding of how the little tools we make use of everyday works wouldn’t cost a fortune and does come in handy. Example: what makes a blender work? Do you know? I don’t. It’s very okay not to have all the answers, one person cannot know everything, but we can enlighten one another. So how about you tell me something you learned today that you never knew?

Hello, i am first a Philosopher, then a New Media Freak and last but definitely not the least, a WordPress Lover. I fell in love with IT precisely the year 2002 when cybercafes became popular in Lagos, the city where i grew up. Gladly, my love for Technology has not diminished but has grown bigger and wider with the new Tech inventions that spring up everyday. When i am not sitting in front of my PC, i am either sleeping or watching a movie..haha. I have been into blogging for quite a while, i have tried different platforms in the past but none has given me the satisfaction and discovery that WordPress blogging has bestowed upon me. I love simple things, i love myself, my creator, my family. Hmm, i love great food *grins*, i love to meet new and exciting people, networking, exchanging ideas and learning new things and cultures, i love mysteries, i love my work tools and gadgets. What else? Mhh.... I love traveling, experiencing new places and i definitely love photography, i like to take pictures of people, food, myself and any sight that piques my interest. I know some people roll their eyes when they see other people taking selfies, i used to be shy to take selfies but not anymore. You know why? I do not have a single picture of my life in high school, and only few of my degree days. When i think about the memories, i ask myself...why are there no pictures of these times? That has to change..don't you agree? View all posts by Mary Job
