It's a good thing I got the shopping done Friday, as it has been raining almost constantly for over forty hours now, and for the last few hours there has been furious wind as well. I'm a bit surprised that the power hasn't gone out yet, but here we are with electric lights and the furnace still working. Hoping our luck holds.

The new(ish) computer is working now, too, though I still haven't gotten email set up. There is also a new (and larger) monitor, which is going to take some getting used to. I haven't used it to look at my photos yet, as those are still trapped on the other computer, but the photos I have seen on the Internets are quite impressive. I must download the latest version of Irfanview so I'll have something to look at my own with, once I've rescued them from digital oblivion.

I did go look at YouTube videos for awhile, and because I was offline for several days, sparing my bandwidth, I indulged myself with some high definition versions. Very nice. The old computer was having trouble with videos, but now they run smoothly and without interruptions.

Oh, and I must remember to download a PDF viewer. And Winamp. And probably other stuff I can't recall offhand. Stuff I won't miss until I need it.

Something I need right now is dinner, as I've been dealing with the new machine all day and totally forgot to eat anything aside from a couple of granola bars around noon. Then television. I hope the TV screen doesn't seem too small after using this enormous thing all day.
