This weather has given us a bit of time to get our new computer up and running. That project has also had delays... lost in the mail for 5 weeks followed by two months of crappy, practically non-existent internet service. So over the past couple of days we have: cloned the hard drive to a Samsung SSD; removed the original HDD and replaced it with the SSD (Hurray, it works!); downloaded some necessary software; removed the CD/DVD drive and replaced with a 7200rpm hybrid drive in a CD drive adaptor (Hurray, it works, too!).
Today it is very gray and overcast. No rain so far but I did hear thunder at 7am. If we can't work outside on the boat I plan to work on my installation of Foobar2000 and create a skin for it that will be useful and attractive. Then do one for Bob's computer, too.
Also, I might splice up a new painter for our dinghy.
So it goes...
