The Boring Bit of a New Computer

You know how exciting it is to get a new piece of technology (or at least, I imagine you do because you’re reading this somehow): you want to be playing with it constantly to figure out what it does! In the case of a new computer, however, that joy is killed off when you remember you need to transfer everything from the old computer to the new one and reinstall all of your programs.

Yup, that’s the stage I’ve gotten too. I’m a photographer, too, so I have TONS of large files to swap over. That means, this is going to be a weeks long process (likely) as I transfer everything over and try to get things organized on the new computer. I really hate this part. I’ve already installed most of the programs, and I’ve moved over all of my documents. However, music and photos are going to take forever.

If you need me, I’ll be sitting at my dining table watching progress bars creep by.

New Computer

YAY! I got a new desktop computer!

Both Dan’s and my laptops are making their way, ever so slowly, to the technology graveyard living in the office closet. Even though they haven’t died yet, it’s making us both rather nervous. Dan just started graduate school, I am in my final semester of school, and my only potential income streams are from the internet. Oh, and this blog. Losing computer access, or reliable computer access, just isn’t an option. I’ve also managed to almost completely fill up my laptop because of my photography. Then, tax refund money arrived!

Obviously, a new computer was first up for us!

It’s great and super fast. Right now, it’s just on the dining table, but it’s a lot of fun having a fully functional and speedy computer.

Though, I do now have to learn Windows 10 (so far so good) and start the long process of transferring files. But it’s still exciting! That is, if you couldn’t tell, what I’ve been doing all day (setting things up). I did have my GI appointment, but I’ll post about that later. For now, sleep is necessary.
