Now and then the rain falls, and sometimes the wind blows, and always the clouds are there, concealing the stars. It has been a blustery night, and cold, and I have spent it making CDs of things on the hard drive which I will want to transfer to the new computer. There remains much to be done, and I think that I'm going to have to find a place to set Sluggo back up so I can continue the project after the new computer arrives. Switching from one machine to another is a massive asspain. When Sluggo was upgraded a few years ago, all that had to be done was to temporarily install his old hard drive (less than a gigabyte) into the new case and move the files onto the new hard drive in one big dump. I didn't have to do it myself. I didn't learn how it was done. I don't know if it could be done with the new computer. Besides, I'm wary of moving the entire contents of a computer that is known to be evil (yes, Sluggo, you) into a computer that may yet be entirely innocent. The likelihood of contamination seems great. So, I do it the hard way.
