Fun for the day

My fun for the day is getting this little baby computer up and running again.

Had to put in a new SSD (solid state drive), re-install Windows. That was interesting since these little things don't have CD-ROM drives, but where there's a will there's a way and you can find ANYTHING on the Internet.....downloaded & installed drivers for the various components. Installing Service Pack 2 right now, to be followed by Service Pack 3. Then I guess I'll have let it download and install all the updates since SP3 came out. Already have an anti-virus program on it and will need to put on some sort of Office program, maybe OpenOffice since it's free.

Yesterday I got a little sewing done.........20 of the neutral string blocks for Roll Roll Cotton Boll. It goes pretty fast even though I'm using up a bunch of narrower strips. Hoping to do another set tomorrow.

The grass is pulled out of the flower bed and maybe tomorrow I can get my petunias set out. If it doesn't rain tonight it should be dry enough tomorrow to set out the tomatoes & peppers too. The poor things will probably get beat senseless by the wind, it hits so bad here, but they have to go into the garden sometime.  And, I think it's time to drag out the grill and the Adirondack chairs since it seems like winter has FINALLY given up its grip.  It's so perfect out tonight that I should probably have been doing this stuff instead of messing with the baby computer. :)


  1. It sounds like you are a computer guru! I could use you at my house for an afternoon to clean up my pc. I wanted to email you and thank you for leaving the comment on my donut ranting but I couldn't find a way to contact you from my blog so here I am. We must not live too far apart judging from you blog. We are preparing around here for the big flood, although I won't be affected but many people will and it's going to be so sad, if the predictions prevail. Thanks again for commenting..Stitches

  2. I just wanted to stop by and let you know that as far as I know the 4G is backward compatible to the 3G. The card will use which ever is available!

  3. hehe--should have told me, I have the separate CD drive for those little computers. I LOVE my little computer. My garden was tilled yesterday. Maybe its better to be putting in a garden now--nursery plants are all on sale.
