25 August 2013. Cat’s Back! On a Backup Machine…

I’m back online, finally, using a backup laptop. It’s not what I’m used to, but it keeps me in the cyberworld whilst the main desktop is still in the shop.  I had a crank CPU and motherboard. In the last 6 weeks, I’ve replaced the power supply, CD-ROM, the fan, the CPU, and, now, the motherboard. That means that I’ll have a virtually-new machine when I pick it up. This laptop isn’t what I’m used to, and it’s a bear for fine work. I’m waiting for Old Faithful, but for now, this will do. My faithful Nicky connected this up… we needed to hook up the modem direct to the machine, He did figure out what was needed; he got me back up and running. I’ll not be offline again like I was… thanks to my Nicky and his “bear nose”, which can sniff trouble out twenty miles away. I’ll have some new things up presently, probably tomorrow.

Be good all, and keep the faith…
