I’m Back

Whether that’s a good or bad thing is not for me to say. It seems as though everything I wanted to install, including Lotus 1-2-3 (!), has installed on my first Windows 10 computer. I think I turned off all or most of the intrusive channels for Microsoft to collect and to sell my data, but I am not sure.

I copied more than 500 files to a flash drive to move to my new computer. The old computer had just enough life left to allow me that. I had also saved my most important Lotus spreadsheets in Excel format–actually, I did that months ago–in the event Lotus 1-2-3 would not install on a new machine.

I had to cannibalize the HDMI cable from the Blu-Ray player as the new computer (an Acer) does not have an old-fashioned input for a video monitor. My wonderful wife also purchased the same computer and I think she will have to buy a new monitor because I don’t think her old one even has HDMI output. I was sure I had a spare cable lying around the house, but could not find it in my 5-minute search. Patience is not a word that leaps to mind in describing my personality, one of my (many) flaws.

Of course, I have lost all of my Internet bookmarks even though I am still using Mozilla Firefox. My WordPress media stash seems to be intact, like this:



My sweet sister and (i)ncomparable niece are visiting us from the East Coast so it’s not likely I will resume “regular” posting until they leave. Of course, the definition of “regular” is fungible.
