DT: come reap

...the hair is from a little boy, and the cross is someone she has not met, not yet

How I feel about it all: optimisticoptimistic
Soundtrack: Black Crowes - She Talks to Angels
Wheee! Thanks to Oldest Daughter Mary's laptop (that is now mine), I have internet access again until I can afford the Mac. Dialup, but it's access nonetheless.

Cable person comes tomorrow, to bestow high-speed internet for a notsomodest fee. I must find time to go and get a mouse (and a USB2 card; this is a slightly elderly laptop, 'tho not as elderly as my former POS computer). I will be able to do cool things once again (like read willysunny's lovely new fic. I haven't forgotten you, darling. Just been electronically deprived).

My problem now is I have very little music. I hope I'll be able to eventually cover my something like 1500 mp3s from my old HD, but I'm not holding my breath until someone can help me do this. Right now I have a CD I made at Mary's house on repeat loop (good stuffs on this thing).

Soo...all you people who use yousendit. Send me things! Stuff you know I like, stuff you THINK I'll like, stuff you like, anything! When I have my cable modem (hopefully tomorrow), I shall download like it was teh end of the world (as we know it).

I want to write a Hermione fic inspired by my Current Music. Whaddya think? Like I don't have seven thousand other things to finish.

I uploaded a few in chat while I was talking for someone in a similar situation. I don't know if you'll like any of these but, it won't hurt to share. If you can tell me some of your music likes, I'll see what I can dig up.

Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve

Silence - Sarah McLachlan and Delerium

Weapon of Choice - Fatboy Slim

Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me - U2

Yay! I would have never thought of "Bittersweet Symphony". I love 90s music. :)

My taste is pretty eclectic (although I do have my favourites). Thanks so much!

When I have changed computers in the past, I have set the old and nes beside each other, and then plugged the old drive in on the long ribbon connector cord. (The ones I have had had ribbon cords with multiple connection plugs on them.) When you turn both machines on, the new machine is what runs your Windows and such, but you can access anything on the old drive. All you have to do is tell your computer to transfer files from whatever it calls the 'old' drive (probably E: or F: or something) to where you want them on the new drive, and WHOOSH, off she goes! It is very fast and easy (even though it sounds hard and complicated).

Does this work even when one machine's a laptop?

Sorry, I got out of the loop with the weekend and the Great Crash and all, and then a FIVE HOUR DRIVE yesterday to get Mike's braces serviced...argh.

Anyway...I don't know for sure, because I am not familiar with laptops. (I WISH I was....) What it depends on is if the plastic plug thingies match.

Do both machines have a USB port? I think you can also do it that way, except it takes longer.

Sorry I am not more help with this...hard to do when you can't see, y'know?

You should get one of the new Mac Minis! If you have a USB keyboard and mouse, and a monitor, it's only $499. :) A bit more if you want a bigger hard drive, more memory, the ability to burn DVDs, or wireless. :)

I'll have to look into it. Of course, I'm one of those people who shops for clothes at the Salvation Army, but has to have the 20-inch flat monitor with huge hard drive, yadda. Wireless is probably something I'm going to be using. We shall see. Right now I'm broke, so it's all a pipe dream currently.

I'll dig around and send you some songs. If you hate 'em you can trash 'em. Right now, I've just been uploading Spider-Man 2 soundtrack songs, but I'm not sure they're your cup of tea.

For me, they're just... Tooooooobey. :D

I adore you, sweetie. Coffee? Soon? Like, for real? <3!

You'd be surprised what my cup of tea is. *g* I'm very, very eclectic songwise.

And yeah, coffee!! I'm free this weekend and Monday. Call meee!
