Another Update

Just a short-ish update;

I've been dealing with this new laptop for a bit and work has been kicking my hiney real hard. So far, it's been a 'relatively' smooth transition to Window$ 7, now that I've done some 'tweaking to the (L)user interface.

I have had a few programs not work or fail to install, but I think that was to be expected. Most depressing was the failure of my Visioneer 9420 scanner to install. It works with everything up to Vista but 7 is enough of a different animal to not accept my scanner.

On the up side, it found my networked HP ink jet with no problems. Go figure. Windows XP fought me tooth and nail to configure it. My old laptop still doesn't like that printer, taking as long as ten minutes to send a print job to the printer.

Anyway, "Redemption" Chapter 24 might be ready by this weekend but don't hold your breath. I have family coming in this week so any writing will be put on hold once they arrive. I'm sure you will all understand this stance.

So, we might buy an Epson workforce 7510 ink jet for the house. It scans 11" X 17" and prints 13" X 19". What a beast. It all hinges on finding a place for it to live other than the closet, since it will do wireless networking.

Take care all!
