Today, Friday, was much more like normal. We breakfasted in Prahran and then did the weekly shopping, which was easy as we did not need much. Have we been out a bit lately?
R went off to wash his car in the afternoon, while I did computer stuff. Well, I tried. Things since the reload were missing. Spell check, for instance. I wrote tomorrow's blog post and not a single wavy red line under anything. Ah, spell check. There is one for IE that R uses, and one for Firefox that I use. Fixed.
We looked at a restaurant website and clicked on the menu link. Ah, no pdf reader. Fixed.
I started working on photos for Sunday's post. Ah, on dvd. Transferred them. Fixed, photos I need are back.
Went to download photos from the camera, but the software was missing. This caused much botheration. I installed the software on the note book last year before we went on holidays so I could back up photos. By comparing the system on the note book to the new one downloaded today, I got the settings right. Fixed.
But I need to save them in Drop Box too. Installed Drop Box, not as easy as the first time I did it, but fixed.
Oh, but where is the right click image resizer? Fixed.
The battle with Windows Live Mail has been long and bitter. Bring back the simplicity of Outlook Express. R went to send an email and realised he did not have his own identity. Fixed, but we seem to be getting emails in duplicate. Pain!
Of course there was the virus checker to install.
March is a busy month for birthdays, with R's tomorrow, Mother's Monday, Step Mother's on Thursday and now Great Niece on 18th. "Print the envelope for your step mother's card will you", was asked. Ah, no printer software. Fixed.
Note to self, you need three days of time, or 12 hours of straight sitting to reload Windows and get things back to normal.
