What A Welcome (and Yet Exhausting) Surprise

Christmas has come and gone for most of us (traditional Christmas is a little over a week away), but I did get a surprise from one of my relatives.

I received a newish computer. Not totally new, but new enough for me. It runs on Windows 98 with a 25 GB hard drive and a 1.7 GHz processor with space to expand and a 56K modem. A little prehistoric to some, but considering the fact that my last computer ran on Windows 95 with a 1 GB hard drive, a 120 MHz processor and a 28K modem, it's tantamount to me upgrading from a Model T to a '65 Mustang. The only problem I have is, well, all my old stuff is on the old gal, mostly my TXB stuff, a lot of great fonts, and a few major files. I had a problem with my floppy drive, and it corrupted every disc I had, which is why I rarely used it in the first place. So, I'm in an endless search for a way to bring to old familiar things in life to my newish funtastic machine. As a result, TXB won't be completely updated for another two or three weeks at minimum, but when it does, oh, what fun that'll be. If I don't get back online in the next couple of days, I hope you all have a safe and happy new year, and if the fates allow, we'll do it all again in '06.

Later, all.

You could always take it to Best Buy or CompUSA or something. They should be able to take everything off your harddrive and burn it onto a CD-ROM or a DVD for you.
