So we FINALLY got our new computer all set up and in it’s final configuration today. She’s marvelous and lovely. And incredibly sexy and new. And FAST. Wow – it speeds along so fast I had forgotten computers could even GO at these speeds!
My dad is a saint for sending this to us. He included a piece of software called PC Mover, and I don’t want to be a shill for them, but I’m just going to say that the software 1) was easy to use and 2) moved EVERYTHING from the old machine to the new machine (everything we decided to keep, that is – some stuff we left on the old machine because we just weren’t using it anymore).
Today we confirmed everything was there AND took the time to load up software we had removed from the old machine to try and speed things up before it died. So now the new machine has everything we need – including the software I needed to move forward into the finishing stretch of my freelance project.
I haven’t named the new machine yet, but may go with Silver, to go with Ivory the MP3 Player (may she RIP) and Scarlet the Blackberry. Hi ho, Silver!!!
