    Cool

    I went to the store this morning. I should be set for another week. It's sunny, but cold. This will be here for a week, then it will start warming up.

    The computer is working just like it did before the "incident". He was slow fixing it, but I assume he had to order the parts it needed.

    I have online banking. I check on how much $$ I have, and what bills have been paid. It's very convenient for me. I have most bills on auto-pay, so I can look online, and see who's been paid.

    Well, everyone have a great day!

    Cool

    Yeah, no Ethernet now. It got old fast. I had to sit in the living room floor. Now I am sitting on the bed, and Sam curled up on my lap. This is the way it's supposed to be!

    Some of those cords are just too short. I believe you can invest in a longer cable if you know what you're doing but it does have to be the right type.

    You had to sit on the living room floor? That shows real determination there. I would have a problem getting up from the living room floor but I'd probably have done the same thing if that was my only way to have Internet access.

    Cool

    They had 50-100 foot Ethernet cables on Amazon, but decided to just call my Nephew to fix it so it worked the way it always did. It's good to be back on my spot on the bed.

    I have a board that was made just to hold the laptop securely on the bed.

    Cool

    I had everything I needed in the "junk room". I had to saw a little, and cut some foam I had for Pinky, a little measuring, and done. The main thing was to make the area under the computers fan, open to the air. It will outlast the computer, and probably me.
