Meet the new puter

We updated our computers from Windows Me to Windows XP (at last) the other day, which is why you haven't seen me here in a while. For the most part, it works well, but there have been some bugs along the way. For example, it took us a while to get my hard drive partitioned, and I'm having issues with my sound card. (12/3 UPDATE: Reinstalling XP over what I had did the trick; the proper files are now installed and I have sound again.)

But worst of all, both of us lost all of our e-mail and addresses. :-( Eudora was simple; just drag the whole dang folder over. So we did that with Thunderbird, but . . . the text files were squirreled way far away.

Moral of the story: do some more research next time, or send the e-mails back to the server somehow.
