Herself: Bike, drag and drop, then school. Salad out for dinner.
Reading: Nothing….an absolutely mind boggling thing. I need to go to the library.
Balance: Getting the backup computer freed from the repair shop and starting the process of transferring the files to the new backup computer.
Now to drag and drop all the many years of saved images to the new backup with its 1000 TB hard drive. To make matters complicatedly simple, since the network only recognizes a certain number of computers, this morning between biking sessions I’m dragging and dropping JPG’s over to the new Vista IBM. Later G will reinsert the new-to-me XP backup, and I will drag and drop all those JPG’s and all that writing over there.
Yes, a duplication of actions, drag it here, drag it there, delete here or there too. The limitations of our network are nothing in comparison to living without a network.
This is a very old, tired, beyond dinosaur that I am downloading from also. Will the overheating chips keep chipping. Will the extra fans keep on fanning. It’s a computer that’s recently been known to buck off the rider into the mud with a certain frequency. The JPG’s from 2007 are taking 40 minutes to drag and drop over to the new computer. That’s a lot of JPG’s. Imagine what will happen when I get to 2008, or even the writing. I just have hopes that my wonderful old dinosaur holds up to these last few actions.
Sixteen minutes now for 2007. Now thirteen….
