The latest news...  
Good morning!

I finally went to be last night at 9:30. Windows XP Pro was still installing, so I let it run. I'm such a nerd! I didn't sleep well thinking about it. :-)

When I went downstairs this morning, it was sitting at a prompt to set the time and date. I answered and it started installing network. The good news is that it did not get a blue screen of death all night. In fact, it hasn't had one since I removed the memory. I left it running and came into work. It will no doubt stop at another prompt before it is done, so it will be waiting for me again. I'll probably stop on the way home and take advantage of these low memory prices and replace the 128M that I removed with a 256M, giving me 512M total.

I hope everyone has a good Wednesday! Is everyone ready for some Turkey?

Re: mmmmm
Well, ham or turkey, if grandma fixes it, it's going to be good! :-) My grandmas both passed on before I knew them. You are super blessed to still have one!

God bless you today too!

Good Morning Gary!
Hope your puter quits acting up.:-)

What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

I probably won't have time to get on here tomorrow before we leave so...


Don't forget to save room for dessert.:-)

Re: Good Morning Gary!
We're not sure yet. We are doing something with my son, his roomate(girl friend?), my mother and one of my cousin's family and my aunt. We are either going out or we are buying a prepared turkey and fixings. My mother doesn't cook much any more and my wife doesn't want to do all the work, so we are taking the easy way out! We will be staying in the area here.

A good journey to you! And there is ALWAYS room for dessert. :-)

Re: Good Morning Gary!
I must confess...

I have bought the Thanksgiving meal already prepared for several years.;-)
I understand Pam not wanting to do it all too well.

This Thanksgiving will indeed be a treat to go to my sisters and eat a home cooked Turkey Dinner.

I trust it will be a good journey. Thank you!

What can I say...Dessert could be first as far as I'm concerned...*LOL*

Re: Dessert first!
There you go! I wonder why that has never become a custom? It sounds good to me! :-)

I knew it! I had faith! I was positive that before it was over ole Gary was going to be victorious over the puter.

I'm glad that you have finally got the installation process for your operating system working on it now. I must have missed somthing somewhere though. I see that you are installing XP, I thought you were gonna install 2000?
Garygdj on November 21st, 2001 04:14 pm (UTC)
I was,and I should have, but I got sucked into XP. Actually, I wanted to install 2000 from my existing CD, but it was giving me strange files missing errors and I thought I should be more leagle anyway. I could have bought a new copy of 2000 and I hope I don't wish I had. Being in the computer field, it is always good for me to be able to say I have some experience in new software. I never know when I might have to look for a new job!

BTW, XP Pro is still installing. I don't know why it is going so slowly. I had to disable all the caching, but I wouldn't think it would make that much difference!
