Computer hassles

Well, I'm almost finished transferring my bookmarks to my new laptop. I need to wait for that_guy_zach to come over and optimize the thing. Right now, my MS security system is badgering me about everything, so I obviously need to modify or dump that and get something I can live with.

Meanwhile, my old standard box went through a modemic death spasm last night. I've had to jury-rig (with Scotch tape) my network cable plug-in for over a year now, and it finally decided Lo, it shall wash no more. Which wouldn't be the end of the world, except there are things on this old box that I can't get to, or get off, without a functioning network cable.

So, I went upstairs and cannibalized collinsmom's old computer for a modem and got this thing running right again. If she wants the modem back, I'll strip this thing clean and reinstall the hardware on her machine; for now, though, all is right with my virtual world.
