Things have been hectic here all day in fact two days and this is just the beginning, for a short while at least. Yesterday we went shopping and got the greatest deal on a new computer, monitor the works! It was a two day sale and we saved 30% on everything. ~ Couldn’t pass that up.
Imagine if you will, 3 computers & two of them are loaded to the gills with files and stuff! Not to mention all the pictures etc, and believe me there are hundreds. ~ So all day long we have been doing the shuffle between the two existing computers. We have to get everything off the old Presario with Win98, which Elizabeth is using, sent it over to mine. I tell you I am overloaded with all the evacuation. The problem is, there are no USB ports on the oldie or floppy on the new ones, so everything had to be done through emails! ~ Of course I reckon networking could have been another option, oh well!
Once we have everything cleared, then we can hook the two new ones up, (for mine is only 1 yr old.) Then we have to sort the stuff out and move all my stuff over to the new one which has Vista, the other one which the wife will have, uses XP which isn’t such a bad arrangement. It will take most of the week but we will get it done eventually.
We also bought this USB gadget it’s a remote/portable memory thing made by Verbatim, that plugs into the USB port and it will hold 1GB of files etc, so I can load up at mine and unload at the new one. Hopefully it wont take too many trips. Hell it sounds more like moving house! There has to be better ways.
Gee! Isn’t it exciting!! ~ Have a good weekend.
