Cool Breeze

I’ve finally got a new computer to replace the gas powered desktop I’ve been running with for the past seven years. Bought last weekend, picked up Thursday night, set up Friday night and tinkered with for much of Saturday. The speed at which it does basic tasks compared to the old one is astonishing. No more staring at the screen waiting for pages to load, no more crashes while composing posts and copying text and codes, no more banging my head against the desk and considering writing things out on paper and hand delivering them to you all… it’s something else. On the other hand copying over thousands of songs and pictures is bewildering. Sorting the music into an order that I recognise could take some time. Getting into accounts may also prove interesting. For a while yesterday I was locked out of this blog and couldn’t access my emails (cue long phonecall to my internet provider which resolved the email issue). I’m sure there are passwords for websites I won’t remember either. But it’s fast at doing stuff. This is Big Youth from 1979 with some smart roots reggae for your Sunday morning.

  1. Yup. That was me this time last weekend.

    I can’t get over how really poorly the old PC was performing until I got the new laptop. That whole banging the desk in frustration I totally recognise….mine was accompanied by screaming and shouting at the machine with loads of swearing (another plus point of having no kids!!) as well as an unhealthy rise in my blood pressure.

    As for organising the music, I’m givinh myself another six months to get it the way I want it. Slowly bust surely deleting all the multiple copies of files that were clearly a contibuting factor to the problems with the old machinery.

  2. Oh and you’ll see from the likes of ‘givinh’ instead of ‘giving’ and ‘bust’ instead of ‘but’ that I’m still getting used to my fat fingertips hitting the correct keys……
