Spellcheck? ha,and ha. was typing that in the STORE while hubby was a few yards over buying this little reduced netbook that he's going to return because it has a password assigned and he can't get into anything.

So, anyway, I have this Asus (shall I name it Jasus?) and it has Windows 7, with 4 GB mem, 320 GB hard drive (and I only know this because the label is there next to the mousie pad).
First I discover Saturday night that I can't do ANYTHING until I make my backup copies of the system for recovery. Ok. So I guy some DVD's for that after church. That takes several hours. Then I realize that there is No Where to plug in a TELEPHONE (no modem) since it is from the latter part of this decade. Oh.
But I don't have wi fi out here (it will be great in the libraries & coffee shops though). So I talk DH into going to Fry's with me where we end up spending $40 for a USB modem, and more dvd's, and a lot of groceries at Big lots, et cetera. And a Mixed ethnic asian american buffet.

So by 10:20 tonight I managed to get on line with a lot of time on my cell phone with this guy in another country doing tech support.

I need to get to bed. I promised I'd work labor day. That will pay for, oh, 1/10 of the computer. But as I said to DH, that is what the student loan money was for. And I have it allocated in ING and haven't used it up yet.
And so it goes.
