I have been working hard getting my computer switched over from Windows 2000 Server Edition (don’t ask – DO NOT ASK) over to a more reasonable version of one of the many, fun, easy to use, perfectly operating and easy to understand, perfectly logical always working right microcrap (oops, did I say that?) products. Okay, so it is just Windows XP Home Edition.
It was shaky there for a while. For some reason XP didn’t want to play nice with my ethernet connection. But even though posting this is proof that all is somewhat well, I have a photo to show you all that I have been working hard all day
I am far from finished. Still running the two different operating systems and still have a lot of software to load.
E-mail works, I have my browser working, my bookmarks working, my address book and the groups came over just fine.
But I realize that I would be having a nervous breakdown if I didn’t have that background in computers. I wonder what regular non-geeky people do?
Knitting content: I managed to start my Charlotte’s web shawl but my back is too spazzy to go downstairs and take a pic and then slog back upstairs to load it. Get this – when I was going up the stairs today, all happy that I had figured out my internet issues, I coughed and put my back out. Coughing can be dangerous.
I will get an adjustment with my chiro but so far it isn’t too bad. Just need to ice it down in a few minutes and spend the rest of the evening kicking back. Tomorrow I will be back at the computer schtuff, and hopefully I will have a pic ready too.
