So, our home computer crashed and we had to get a new one. We had been talking about this for a while anyway, but circumstances caused us to get one sooner than we wanted.
We got a new Lenovo (and new 20” LCD monitor) from Fry’s Electronics. It is a nice setup.
Last year, we got backup service from Carbonite and used it to back up all of our data files (office docs, pictures, e-mail, videos, etc). This backup came in handy over the weekend! File restores from Carbonite worked like a charm, though it isn’t the fastest service on the planet. It certainly earned its wage this weekend!
So, we are pretty much back up and running. As part of our ‘upgrade’, we went from an XP system to a Vista system. New UI, but we are getting used to it.
Of course, there are already some upgrades we want to do… new webcam, a second hard drive, new scanner (no Vista drivers for our current one).
The fun never ends…
P.S. If you are interested in Carbonite, let me know and I will send you an invite… Customers get credit for referrals. Thx!
