Life is getting better these days Clay is doing great and I am slowly getting things done that were put on hold. One of the most important things I had to do was to set up my new iMAC before Windows would no long be supported. Somehow I thought I had until the 20th of January to make the transition, but alas when I turned on my PC it was yesterday that Windows 7 support stopped! Whew! Talk about cutting it close!
So this morning I rushed to shut off the Internet on the Dell laptop and the 2 desktops before we had any problems with uninvited guests – like hackers or unwanted viruses on our network!
I started Monday with setting up the iMAC, backing up all documents for the last time, transferring them to the iMAC, switching 2 laptops, and now aI will be getting rid of the 2 each 10 year old desktops.
You ask about my quilting projects? Well, they have been on hold until tomorrow or Saturday! I had allowed 4 days this week Tomorrow will be downloading EQ8 and getting familiar with some of the software and settings. I now am totally Apple and am 95% finished with the transition. Here is my new work station!
There was one problem with the transition, I have 3 external hard drives that I use to continually back up my documents and pictures that are on the PC. One of them was accidentally hit and fell on the floor – goodbye Seagate External Drive! Thank God I had already transferred files to the iMAC, because later when we moved the PC that had all the files went belly up also (at least I think it did) ! I had another one that evidently had died also so I was left with the one that I backed up my MacBookPro laptop. In the end, it all worked out great, if I lost any data or documents they were things I can do without!
Tomorrow will be short trip to HEB and playing with Ms MAC and Friday we will be going to BAMC for a checkup and probably a full cast will be put on his hand after they remove stitches and the temporary splint.
I am ‘planning’ on selecting fabrics for OMIGOSH if all goes well. I am still leaning toward Reproductions. But as we quilters know – we have the option to change our minds.
Have a great week and week-end! Enjoy the Holiday on Monday if you are still working
