New Computer

Well I guess we reached the point that we had to shell out the $$ for a new one. Phil's work finally got around to downloading one last delayed bonus to his AMX. Just enough for us to get a new computer. I mean I was on the verge of tossing my old one across the room or out a window. Now if only we could get the tax stimulus check. But that's another story. I'll do that one up and post it later.
Anyway I have layouts to do. Then to top it off my MIL sent me a huge box of slides that I have to run through the slide and negative scanner. It took like 20 minutes to run the scanner and like 4 hours just to do a few minor adjustments per slide! So like 2 slides and 2 days into the project I canned it till we got a new computer. Then I go to work on some pictures to scrap and I'm up to like 3am! I haven't even got a chance to scrap them yet! So when Phil got the download it was off to get the computer. Happy Mother's Day he says. I'm happy with that Mother's day gift. LOL!
Now I'm doing a file transfer from the old computer to the new one. I started last night around 11pm, and it's still going! Well wait I did have to update my Bit Defender first since that wasn't compatible with Vista. I just hope I don't have too many Vista problems. Wish me luck!

Another Day Another Computer Problem

Good grief I have spent the last 30 hours trying to get my desktop working again. Phil said it wouldn't take long for him to install a new hard drive and get it going as my new main drive. HAH! Fat chance we are talking about my computer so of course anything that can go wrong has gone wrong.
First I was up till 4am trying to get my sound card driver. What a pain that was. Then I got up this morning and proceeded to waste pretty much my whole day trying to get my wireless to work. No it still isn't working I just found my extra, extra, extra long ethernet cord and am working on a direct connection. Wait I'm posting this from my laptop since I'm still trying to get my Photoshop and ACDSee to work on the desktop. Come tomorrow I better have that Stimulus check! Because Phil said no matter what Sunday I can get a new Computer. I know then I have to start all over. Don't laugh!!!
So far I do have a new Video card out of all this. Phil said it might get the desktop moving faster, and when I get the new computer I'll use it in that too. I sure hope it works since tomorrow morning I have 2 co-op classes to teach. Tongue Out 12
