What started out as an innocent project has taken all weekend, and is still continuing as we speak – – or as I type.
Very long story short….I purchased a new computer last week. When we purchase new computer systems in this house – we don’t run out and buy a Dell system, or anything like that. We purchase each component seperately and then piece it together on the floor of my office. So, yea – I picked up a new motherboard, CPU, cooling system, RAM, Video card, Hard drives, monitor, new case – the whole thing. First came the assembly – then came the OS installation…then came the gazillion Windows Updates and Office Updates. Then came the various and sundry software installations and configurations…ya get the picture.
I did all my necessary backups on my old computer Friday night in preparation for the Saturday computer project. It’s now Sunday night and the computer is *almost* ready for me to use. I haven’t accessed my email or been able to work all weekend – – I had anticipated being back to my normal computing routines this morning…but, alas – it was not meant to be. For the most part, it has gone pretty smoothly – – but other various life stuff got in the way of getting it all completed in one day.
I’m sure I will be back to normal by morning – – if you’ve attempted to get ahold of me this weekend..this would be why you haven’t been able to. Withdrawl? Nah…..
Ok – so it’s 2AM and I’m finally done. I’ve popped my email and have gotten things back to a (relatively) normal state. Time to sleep and tomorrow I shall pick up where I left off on Friday.
