    A friend of mine has an old XP laptop. It's pretty clunky, but it will take my software, and I don't need Internet access. All I really need is Photosuite and MS Word 2003, maybe Familytreemaker 16.

    I'm going to ask for it if she hasn't given it to anyone else yet. It would be really cool to be able to work somewhere besides my desk and have my old functionality.

    Let there be light. Then let there be a cat, a cocktail, and a good book.

      I haven't tried to set it up yet, and probably won't for a while because I have a report to write. TTYL.

          I'll keep you posted, though I don't know how, with diaries aging out. Come to think of it, how do you keep up with a story here anyway, one's own or someone else's? Wait, I know.

            The patient gamely keeps trying to survive, rediagnosing, repairing, and re-defragging. It tidies up and restarts, but all the mess is there again. The brooms in Fantasia have nothing on this valiant Dell Inspiron. I'm going to pull the plug now.
