Law of Mechanical Repair

This little number arrived late Saturday while I was off scrapping at Haley’s House:

IMGP2610

That would be the same Saturday of the progressive dinner and the bazillion things that were going on.  I didn’t get to even open up the box till after church yesterday…ta dah:

IMGP2612

So of course after getting it turned on and initialized, I discovered that it requires DVDs or an 8 gig flash drive in order to first back up the operating system.  DO THAT FIRST.  No, I can’t put the info onto my external hard drive.  I tried that route.  It is either the flash drive (I have one but don’t want to use it for that) or DVDs (they will store easier and not get lost).  Since I don’t have enough of those, this means a trip to “the Walmart” this morning before I can (should) proceed.  Bugger.

Law of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch, and you'll have to pee.

Or you’ll have to go to town for another part.

Happy Monday, y’all!

Oh so true! Glad your new laptop is here. Enjoy getting to know it. I like the picture of the screen with you and your camera reflected in it!

Or if you really really don't want to go to town, you will be missing an ingredient for a recipe you are in the middle of.

I got a new one of these myself recently (though mine is purple!) and I didn't do the back-up disks right away as the DVDs that I had weren't working right and I had to buy new ones. I finally got around to making the System Recovery disks this past Saturday and I think it was okay to do them later. I've got my fingers crossed that I don't ever need to delete and then restore the whole operating system but ya just never know, right? Better safe than sorry!

Backing up the system? hmmm! That is something I still need to do. I know, I know. I am going to do it today. I promise!
