Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

About Me

My photo
I am married and have seven children and twenty grandchildren. I retired January 1, 2010 after working 39+ years for the Forest Service...NEW CHAPTER IN MY LIFE HAS BEGUN!

Monday, March 9, 2009


We went to a town North of us a couple of hours and picked up our youngest daughter for spring break. While we were there we bought a new computer and all new programs. I hate the Vista operating system. Guess when I know where to look for the buttons and can file stuff the way I want then I'll be OK but it sucks right now. Everything operates differently than our old system.

I installed Java Script last night and got up early to finish the installation and hang up the phone but decided to do this before going back to bed. Inklings tried to get on her family chat but couldn't because we didn't have Java script. It took over three hours to download the stuff so hope it helps in the future.

When I tried to transfer all my files from the old computer to this one they were all locked as read only files so I just as well have left them alone where they were.

I think before we are through though this computer will be a lot better than the one I had made to order eleven years ago. I hope so.

I have Vista too, and I hate it too.

HATE.IT.HATE.IT.HATE.IT. Guess I'm not an agent for change.

Three words would've allowed you to download java in about two minutes:

I agree with Nativeminnow. :)

Also, I had heard bad things about Vista, so didn't order it on purpose. :) You should've told me, I can get 10% off at Dell.
