I have been missing in action the last couple of weeks. I have been occupied – I am the care giver for my 88 year old mother and she had some medical issues. About the time she was improving my computer died (hard drive), fortunately I had not done much of anything since I backed up last time so I didn’t lose much but I did have to find the $ for a new one. I did but the new machine is Windows 7 and god knows I hate change. I still miss DOS. There was a Windows 7 driver for my printer but not for my scanner. Problem 2 – no PS2 connection for my beloved trackball. There are PS2 to USB adapters available so that can be resolved but to use my scanner I had to drag out an old Windows 98 machine. I will scan on it and save the results on a thumb drive and transfer them to my computer for processing. The one thing I really don’t understand is the new wide monitor. Why would I want this? I have a 20″ widescreen but most things are actually smaller than they were on my old 17″ monitor.
OK, I’m old. Get off my lawn!!!!Click here for reuse options!
