No, I'm really not talking about myself here. SMILE! I just wanted to write because the other night I was talking about something that I wanted to bring up and needed to wait. Well, the reason I needed to wait was because I was going to see if anyone wanted to buy a laptop. However, I already sold it, so I don't need to do that. And, I'm writing this from my new laptop! So far this is one sweet machine! I don't have much on it yet, but I wanted to give it a test run and it's performing very well. So, if you were looking for a laptop, sorry. SMILE!

The restaurant tonight was great. But as I wrote that I remembered that I'd written about that in a protected entry, so some people reading this didn't know I was going to a restaurant. We went to Golden Corral, which I just realized must be a chain. They had the best bacon-wrapped chicken tonight! I don't think I've ever had better chicken on a buffet!

It's 16 degrees outside right now, and I am extremely glad to be in here where it's warm. I checked the temperature for Florida again today and it was at 80 degrees. Unfortunately, it's as if Florida knows that I'm coming. On sunday when I fly down it's only supposed to be in the mid 60s. Me and my luck. SMILE! Oh well, it'll still be better than 16 degrees, right?

Well, I said that this was going to be short and it is. I've got a couple of things I want to do before going to bed and I've got a road trip tomorrow, so I'm going to go for now. Later.

I totally must be! My new hard drive came yesterday while I was at a meeting, and when I got back home I decided that my main hard drive is way overdue for a cleaning. Between last night and this morning, I've been copying all my important stuff onto the new drive in preparation for completely wiping my drive clean and starting over. I don't have a full installation of Windows XP, (only the version that Dell sends with their older machines, early 2004 at least), but when I had this hard drive installed last year my computer guy Ghosted my drive and created a batch file on a floppy disk. So, all I have to do is put the floppy in, reboot, and sit back and relax. This of course depends very heavily on whether my back-up drive that has the Ghosted image is still functioning enough to allow the image to work correctly. Fortunately my computer guy prepared me for that as well though by providing me a back-up image on a DVD. So, one way or another I'm going to restore my drive today. It's always kind of freaky, because as careful as I am about backing up everything, I'm always afraid that I'm going to forget something. I've finally started getting at least a little smarter though, and I keep all disks that I could possibly need for this machine in one place! yes, believe me, this is a major accomplishment for me! SMILE! So, hopefully this all goes as expected, and in a little while I'll be back up and running. If not, I'll be posting from the PAC Mate or my laptop beast, but I'm going to hope that things never quite get that desperate. SMILE! Anyway though, here goes nothing!
