Welp, today, after getting what I could be saved from the old HD (which despite best efforts was zero) I have to begin the task of re-installing and formatting and laying out everything I can. This may, at first glance seem simple and easy, but the old machine was a windows 8.1 and the new one is windows 10 – which I have to admit I am starting to like.
In addition to my previous posts about my plans for the future, I now have to deal with this. This is not an “oh woes is me..” type of thing, more of a heads up to let you all know whats going on. Old programs have to be installed, tested for Windows 10, updated and so on. Then, the stage I am at now is restoring, as best I can, the old data, fonts and everything else.
Once all that is done, THEN I can start trying to recreate the latest pdf and so from my notes. It’ll take time. Probably won’t be until after Xmas, or, if I am brutally honest, the new year, before things are back to “normal” – But , to keep my sanity if nothing else, I am seeing this as an opportunity to get things behind the scenes in order, sort out files, archive ones I was not using as much but still want to keep and so on.
So, in the meantime, things on the blog will be sporadic at best. So don’t panic – Although things have gone south for a bit, it’s not as bad as it seems, just, well, time-consuming.
