New Hard Drive

Saturday, December 3rd, 2005

I got a new hard drive this week in the mail. Brian spent his entire day off, from Thursday night until Friday night, working on getting my new drive in and my old drive where I could copy things from it. He is such a gift to me! It would have taken me much longer… he’s better at hardware issues than I am by leaps and bounds.

I was unable to use my regular email program for a full day, where normally I’m online at least a few times a day (first thing, last thing) if nothing else. I’m behind the times, folks… and I still have programs to install, pay for, configure, you name it. If you didn’t hear from me Saturday I’ll do my best to write on Sunday. If you don’t hear then, I missed your email. Please write again, if that is the case.

I’ve been grumpy here while the hardware changeover has been happening. I have to keep reminding myself that I did not lose any data. Brian tried valiantly to use the Norton Ghost program that I have, to make ths process seamless. The equipment I have just did not want to go along with Ghost at all. So I’m reduced to manually re-installing, re-configuring, and dragging files over to the new machine one folder at a time.

I’m really grateful that so far the flaky hard drive has not crashed. In fact, if it should crash now, I’d lose only some configuration files. I am probably safe from the worst case scenarios. Unless the new and the old drives decided to stop working at the same time, that is, before I get the backup program working again.

I have wonderful knitting stories to tell, in particular the CityKidz Knit! program has been especially wonderful this week… there is much to say here and many photos on my camera to copy to the new hard drive.

But for now I need to be glad that my Sunday class somehow is not “a go” and I can spend the day at home working on the laptop, felting a few bags, and knitting. It could be much worse… especially since it is snowing. Snow is the perfect excuse for a Sunday at home!

Good Night.
