And so... the drive (sporting xp for the last 7 years)
started freezing up like it was trying to get demoted
to a door stop. The wife and I have spoken of replacing
that system for at least a year, but I did not want to
venture into 2 : an extensive mental view
(as over a stretch of time or a series of events)
Or, was that "hasta la vista" ? How did they
come to the number seven as a name for
their new OS? The web knows...
I have the old drive re-formatting beside
my desk and can get programs/drivers on
the new drive if needed - convenient, right!?
only the old tower seems to not be liking
information of any sort. The key factor in
my mind is that it is only 24 inches from keeping
the laundry door from pounding my aquarium.
Then, there is no need for it to be carried out to
the recently emptied computer "bone" pile on
the now-empty shelves..........wait!........
what's that?.......It's acting like it....
almost....remembers the last.....couple
of.....days......eureka!! It works!
AND - because this operating system has
been installed by at least 3 (yes, three)
different system discs, took about 16 tries
to get it working, and has succeeded in 7
out of 8 restarts so far, I feel as if this
quilted OS should be named :
(or, 47 and 7/8)
....um....nevermind. it just forgot how to
boot again (6 more times failed - making it a 47.5 )
and the system disc went back in the
drive and I'll just have to wait and see
how it turns out................
