Today is the last day of our holidays, it has been a truly fabulous week, we have enjoyed every second of it

It is a very foggy morning, reminds me of England in Winter and quite chilly brrr

Today we are heading out for our morning walk and then we have more of the game to get on with

Waiting for 23 Windows updates to install. The cursor eventually unfroze. I can't find the user's guide on line. I did find and watch a Windows 8 tutorial on the Toshiba site.

It said it was connected to our home WiFi, but it couldn't see the other computers on the network. I might try plugging it into the network cable.

I need to download a driver for my laser printer. Then I will need to figure out how to make it the default printer.

I'm not having fun yet.

Chilling out... well trying to for a change. Heat waves on in the wild west almost 100 here today. So it's not a good idea to be keeping up with all the prep work for the house. I can't wait until everything is finally done. Keeping things organized, sorted, sifted through has been a hassle. Were painting inside. Replacing appliances and having all the heavy duty landscaping finished up that I can't do myself. So if ya don't see me. Don't count me out.
Yet.

It's never fun setting up a new computer, Taxy, that's for sure. Let alone learning a new OS.

Okay, printer is installed. I didn't have to connect the network cable and I can now see the other computers on the network. The user's guide is printed, so now I can read it.

Last night I downloaded the latest version of the firm ware for my Samsung Galaxy and I really like the new predictive typing. It does a pretty good job of guessing the next word I want.

I just remembered that I have PortableApps, PortableApps.com - Portable software for USB, portable and cloud drives on a USB key. I don't have to learn to use the new version of Internet Exploder to download Firefox, so I can download other stuff. Laptops come preloaded with so much junk that it is worth getting a crapware remover: Five apps for crapware cleanup | TechRepublic. Staples would have done it for me, for a $100! I'll let you know how it goes.
