New Look…

… to my little space!  I should be Marie Kondo-ing my room right now (I actually started and got distracted…I wonder by what??) by touching items trying to figure out what exactly is giving me joy and what isn’t, then saying “thank you” to the items that sparked “HELL NO” for serving me.

The Nola Kitty IT Department

  • Changed out and installed new 1 TB hard drive and installed new Windows 10 software on an HP Slimline that I found in my attic: CHECK

This one was under insulation in my attic along with an EFF-TON of Mardi Gras beads (a couple of cases) and throws.  It looks like the previous residents were in a Mardi Gras Krewe. There appears to be some black looking stuff (I think tar. CRAP!) that is on the bottom of this thing that is getting on my floors. I am happy about the computer working but not pleased about the tar. It previously had Windows 7 on it and 650 GB Hard Drive.  This will be one of my writing computers, so I’m okay with just 1 TB and Windows 10. Please excuse the dust bunnies …  and that black stuff is from the bottom of the computer. This one is a WIN!

***Edited to add: Just checked, this computer is so old there is only Ethernet and Dial-up available to connect to the Internet. Wow. There is no wireless card, no HDMI and in 2010 it was over 500.00. I thought I did something or forgot a connection, nope it is just that old :). Pretty glossy and pretty blue lights though.  ***

  • Lenovo Laptop upgraded with 2 TB HD.  That one is my son’s gaming computer.  All I know is I am happy that his beloved laptop is now working again. It has a G4 card or something like that, I call myself an IT department but still don’t know what the hell he is talking about half the time.

Second WIN! YAY for saving beaucoup money!

  • Third and last … a FAIL with the Gateway laptop I was trying resurrect for my Daddy. I cannot find a power cord for the darn thing. I rarely used it, and it was just updated to Windows 10.

That was from a dark time in my life, so maybe it is good that it is dead. 🙂 Was going to wipe it and give it to Daddy, but that was a bust. Back to the drawing board and to Best Buy to return the Universal cord. 🙁
