A few days ago, Faye and I ordered a new computer for Frances. Frances is Faye's sister and she lives with us here in pseudo-paradise. She had been using a "hand-me-down", an old Win98 machine of mine I replaced with a Vista machine some time ago. This new one has Windows 7 installed, a rather large HD, and should be quite useful to her. Even though she primarily uses it to play mindless games. Much like the rest of us.
I will also get her hooked up to the internet because I have finally figured out what I have been doing wrong. Maybe. Or not.
The machine arrived today.
Therefore, the rest of my day will be eaten up with setting up this new machine and getting some files moved over to it.
I look forward to this. Honest. Primarily because I will get a chance to see what Windows 7 is like. But also because I am a masochist who enjoys the frustration and tedium that comes with setting up a new Windows based computer. If I didn't, I would have gotten her an Apple of some kind.
Maybe tomorrow I will regale you all with my trials and tribulations or bore you with how easy it was. Or some combination thereof.
Now, where did I put those blank DVDs?
