Ok, technically it's plugged in, but outside of setting up my Blackberry files and Firefox, I haven't gotten all my "old goodies" transferred across.
Mainly, because I can't stop writing. Which is, as Martha Stewart says, a good thing.
Every night, I transfer my files to the external drive, then turn on the new computer and transfer them on to there. Then while they are uploading I make sure all my graphic/music/website files are ready to go. Since those take an hour to upload, I have to find something to do while I'm waiting.
So, I write.
Which creates a new file, which has to be ....are you seeing where I'm going? Chicken and the egg. Dog chasing after his tail.
But, the long wait is coming to an end. First, because I ran out of hard drive space. It seems I've scanned in SO many photos I've actually filled my hard drive to the point it quit working. Eek.
The choice has been made for me. Get off thine ass and get your stuff transferred to the new computer. Or else. This weekend is set aside for loading software, updating old programs, deleting ones I don't use anymore. Sounds like fun, no? No. But it's time to move onward.
My word count might be low over the next few days, and I may temporarily disappear as I move across, but when I get finished I'll be even FASTER than ever before. Live in fear!
Up Up and AWAY!!!!
(who just realized that with this post she's made yet ANOTHER document that needs to be saved, transferred and uploaded)
