Well it is done. I have switched. I have abandoned a old friend. The computer that I purchased in 2001 is sitting on the work table. He will get lots of his files deleted and then he will go upstairs to be used when the Grand boys come over. We have a â€œpretend you are a pilot and can fly programâ€ with controllers that they love to play.
I feel a bit guilty..it was almost a perfectly good computer it was just full to overflowing and getting slower everydayâ€¦very slow. The last time I had it repaired the idiot with the lobotomy never replaced the module that you use to down load Secure Digital memory cards from the camera. Luckily I had one on my printer. It irritated me every time I downloaded photos. I get a little cranky when things donâ€™t work like they should.
The Simple Save External Hard Drive worked as advertised and saved all my photos and goodness knows what else.
I can even find a photo in it. This is Far Guy and Chance on July 3 playing in the water. (This was well before all the people with boats and drinks arrived.)
I loaded Avira Virus Software and Windows Live Writer and Google Chrome..I suppose I should load my camera software..and I am not sure if I can print anything or not ..yet.
Far Guy will load what I call crap cleaner on it soon. It removes cookies and other â€œstuffâ€ ( highly technical).
My new computer is a Pavilion Elite( with oodles more space for me to fill up) made by Hewlett-Packard. Most everything we have is HP..my baby brother helped me pick out the new computer..actually I emailed him..and he said â€œlooks good to me.â€ He works for HP and he helped me pick out my laptop that I am very pleased with..and he picked out my computer ten years ago too.
This new computer is just a whiz..faster than a speeding bullet..and one of the rewards of working all summer!
