No pictures, or knitting here, just the story of my day helping friends with their computers. Read on (click on "continue reading" below) if this sounds interesting; otherwise, move along.
I had an opportunity to help Pat and Big G today. One has a mature Windows XP and the other has a new Windows XP.
Pat's PC is a mature Dell with 512 megabytes of memory... not enough, but
those Dell's just keep plugging along. Pat, if you are reading this,
my computer has 1024M of memory - twice as much. Mine still slows down
and I have to wait when I have too much going on at once. I'm starting to save my pennies for a new one with
MS Vista, maybe in a year or so, when some of the major problems have
been worked out of the applicaitons that run on Vista.
Big G's PC is a new HP laptop. Wow, that screen is wide and pretty! Way prettier than mine. Don't forget, Big G, your anti-virus protection runs out in 17 more days. Always practice safe computing :-)
On the way home we saw the same herd of elk that we saw before. It's a big herd! We didn't see any bachelors with big antlers :-(
