The new computer is pretty much up and running now. I managed to flash-drive off of the old one everything that I want to keep and put them on the new, though it looks like some of them won't function with the new operating system. That's to be expected, I suppose.|
Now I just need to install my word processing program and hook up the new printer. I also need to call Time-Warner and figure out how to make the laptop work with my cable modem. Right now it's resisting, and I've been getting online by surreptitiously riding a neighbor's unguarded wi-fi signal. I suspect I just need some updated software for the cable modem.
One thing I haven't found yet is a good shareware solitaire game for Mac OS 10.5. (The only game the laptop comes with is chess, oddly.) The solitaire game available on the Mac site is crappy, and the only good one I've found so far won't let me change the options from deal-three to deal-one. If anyone knows of any good ones out there, let me know. Also, if you happen to see a version of Shanghai (the tile memory game) for Mac OS, let me know about that one too. I love me some Shanghai!
