No more snow, but lots of wind...

So, the snow all melted. we have had above freezing temperatures, wind, and rain. Actually, I have to say it feels a lot more like Seattle than Linden outside. So, I have found a more permanent home for my webcam to sit until Wednesday. I have a lot to get done in the next couple of days. I was hoping to get Sally's computer fixed, but she has not brought it over for me to look at it... I assume her computer is in just as bad shape as mom's was. I have only seen the essential friends, which is nice, but I would like to see some of the regulars that I always visit when I come back. I think today I'm going to go over to my sister's house and try to get her TV working correctly. She just got a digital conversion box, but she doesn't pick up any channels.

Other than that, Jaani has been happy, I've been happy.

I am currently copying all the files from mom's old computer to her new external hard drive. With my webcam running that seems to have slowed down to 950KB/sec. Then I will copy her sewing stuff onto her old computer, where she can use her 3.5" floppys with her super-duper sewing machine. At least until I convince her that she just needs to get the USB conversion kit.

Anyway, that is neither here nor there. I should get going, and get something to eat while I'm at it.
