It’s Monday – what’s new? Windows 10!
A smooth, uneventful transition to Windows 10! Yippee skippee. The installation went well – just over 2 1/2 hours. More time than that was spent pre-installation clearing space off our external hard drive to back up files, just in case (a case that did not come into play, thankfully).
This is a non-event for most people, but we procrastinating technophobes need to take our little victory laps when we can. (Tempting fate as we do so.) I switched out our 10+ year old Dell printer which didn’t really work with Windows 8.1 and would not work at all with 10. We have swapped it for the HP printer that we bought for college girl, who doesn’t need it at college and left it behind.
Hubby is thrilled that he can now print wirelessly from downstairs. Smaller than the Dell, good for elbow room, but not as tall as the Dell which stood in for a bookend. A little desk rearranging was necessary – a little cleaning did not hurt either.
The printer installation experienced a little hiccup which meant that I was nearly late for Bible study. When there I realized I still had my house shoes on. Nobody noticed. It was our first time back in the New Year and everyone was very very chatty. I chose a new seat too this new year – perhaps it will come with new perspective. I do know it is not situated in the draft created by the room heater near my old seat. I am still contemplating a journaling Bible, but that may be too much radical change for this conservative Lutheran!
But back to things that plug into the wall. Both our paper shredder and postal scale have died since Christmas. I guess 15 years is a pretty good life span for both, I remember getting them both when I became a SAHM and started selling Longaberger baskets on eBay. I was quite pleased at how much nicer replacements I was able to get for much less money than I spent last time. Thank you, Amazon.com.
Also, I have managed to set up my Shotbox, which arrived the prior week (yes, another instance of technology procrastination, I told you). The hope is no more blurry dreary day photos of layouts. I plan a proper review once I have perfected using it. Here’s my first shot taken with my point and shoot and I can see I need to think about reflections and such – but I am already loving the seamless backdrop. The set-up was so simple, that the Shotbox came with only a single sheet of instructions, and no guidance on using it. What do you want to bet I can find something online in that regard?
That’s the memo, this Monday. Do give Sian @Fromhighinthesky a wave and let us know what’s new with you.
