I started this week with two of my three desktop computers sorely needing attention. One needs to have the dust removed, I am sure. It keeps overheating and shutting down. I have used it for some time as a server and is the oldest of the systems. The other system stopped functioning shortly after I installed Windows 8 on it. It's non-functioning may just be coincidence, but i am not really sure at this moment. I have dragged my feet on fixing these systems because I had a fully functioning Laptop, which I use along with my ipad (yes, I have an Apple device!)
Long story short, I now have a NEW laptop with core i7 processor, 8 G of RAM and 2G of graphics memory. The only downside to it is that it came with Windows 8. Microsoft is now testing Windows 8.1 and it is supposed to correct some of the problems and be available in a few months. It is available as a testing system now, but there are sure to be changes before the final release. I am really not up for Beta testing right now. I just need to get my software on my new system and get back to business.
What am I using now? I am doing this on my old, old laptop at the Church Office.
Peace, prosperity and working technology,
