Yay, for the new notebook!! Sounds like you're enjoying the benefits already. AND...the goat made me laugh a lot. 😂😂😂
Congratulations on the new laptop. Soon you will be used to the speed and wonder how you ever used the old one. :-)
It is good to see you back, looks like I missed all your air conditioning excitement...
A new computer is fun once you get passed the "now how do I do this" part. I had to get a new laptop and am impressed with how fast these things happen now.
Have a good Septemeber :-)
Actually this is the second one (identical models) ... the first was defective so I returned it (what's another week?!?) for the new one that works. If you scroll up, that is the defective one. The screen you see is where it locked up -- fortunately before I inputted any of my information. ARGH!!!
The date and time are off. It wouldn't do anything, so back it went. This took time of course. I've returned the initial one so should be getting a refund shortly. I didn't want to drag out the article so didn't include that!
Seriously though, over the past 30 years I've had Toshibas almost exclusively. One had a failure probably 25 years ago. They treated me well. I had a 4gig unit that failed. My friend up in NY had 5 of the same exact model in the field (salesmen) and mine (treated well) had the problems. What impressed me was that the company mailed me a brand new computer (10 gigs!!!) and allowed me a couple weeks to pull the info off mine and put it on the new laptop. That was a Satellite model...
Anyway, I am delighted with this one.
I'm happy you liked my goat. That is so Me! Thanks. Your friend in the south, J.
I should have spent the money long ago. I'm loving the speed. The past year I have put most of my resources into infrastructure. Safety, improvements, and attempting to make this boat suitable as I age. In that regard a tuna door is on the agenda. Climbing over the transom is not something I want to be doing for much longer.
Fortunately Jesse has agreed to do the project. I've just got to get my ducks in a row for this. In that regard, at least one boat has to sell back here. Hopefully that will happen soon. :)
Thanks for your note. Please pass along to your Janet how much I LOVE that pancake maker. I use it all the time, and can't imagine how I ever managed without one. It is simply the best. So, thank you both again. J.
The AC was a challenge. I am glad the cooling part is resolved. Jesse said he could make it heat for me too. I did buy a reverse cycle/ heat pump model so that too is on my List. The List is a scary thing.
It is great to be back, with a modern computer too. Installing wasn't too bad. I had 3 old hard-drives with my stuff. Two of them didn't load up. Fortunately one worked well. It had FrontPage, plus I downloaded a new Filezilla (this computer is 64-bits) so my old FTP program did't work.
The best is WordWeb. It is an old thesaurus program circa the late 90's. My edition is 2001. I like best that it works off-line.
Anyway, it's great to be back. Thank you Sir for your comment. I appreciate that. J.
