Computer Overhaul

My laptop is officially 2 years old and I am just as enamored with it as the day I bought it. However, it's not as awesome as it used to be. It's not as fast. It's bogged down with heaven knows what and I am finally going to do something about it.

I talked to a guy yesterday who said that a complete reload of your operating system is highly recommended for all computer once per year. Once a year? I had no idea! Especially because it's a huge PITA.

But I'm going to do it. I'm doing it. I'm nervous!

Taking the guy's advice, I installed all of my programs onto my external harddrive so that once Vista is re-installed on my laptop, I can just go through and reinstall all my important programs. Hopefully it won't take too long. I've only done this once before and it was a complete fiasco. It took like 4x longer than it was supposed to take and it was a lot of freakin' work. Plus, I had no children clamoring around me screaming at the top of their lungs for me to pick them up. Honestly, it's stressful enough without a child climbing your leg. But, it needs done.

So if I'm absent for a few days, you'll know why.

Here goes nothing...

I found your blog quite by accident; I was messing around with a Entrecard Credit Generator and your blog came up! You have a lovely, lovely blog, and I have enjoyed reading your posts! :)

I signed up to be a Facebook fan, but it is my daughter's page...I don't have my own Facebook page yet! :)
