I have a new computer!


Back at the zoo....

I have a brand ndw IBM computer. This was purely by chance -- the place Russ works accidentally got an extra one and couldn't return it, so they agreed to sell it to Russ. A really good deal.

My pictures look different! And the Daz stuff works the way it's supposed to!

It will, of course, take me days to get the computer set up properly and get back to normal. But it has a lovely flat screen that's wonderful to use. I've been working with 24bit color for so long that I am having trouble adjusting to the 32bit.

I can't find my FrontPage disk at the moment, so my journal is taking a vacation until I can. It shouldn't be more than a day or so.

Is this going to screw up my 'nearly caught up on work' stuff? Of course. But I think it's kind of worth it.

Cool, Zette.

BTW--I love the waterfall pic. Can I put it on my computer as wallpaper? I'd love to look at it more often than when I open your blog. :)

Thanks Melly and Holly. It is wonderful. I hadn't realized how badly my poor old HP had started behaving until I had a computer that works properly. This is really wonderful.

Linda -- I'm glad you like it, and yes, go ahead and use it. That's from the Lied Jungle at the Henry Doorly Zoo.

That is absolutely fabulous, Zette! My clunker at work is dying, and I'm hoping to get something way way way better. I need to get a few more months out of it though (she says coaxingly...)
