A very well-muscled young man (I can't believe how much I've been
noticing hunky young men lately!) delivered our new computer this
morning. DH will have a fun weekend setting it up! I'm not sure what
we're going to do with the "old" one. It is only 2 years old, but that's
practically ancient to DH, my resident geek. I want it in the kitchen,
loaded with my recipe program, but we don't really have the space for
it. DD#1 wants it in her room, but I don't want to set a precedent with
the kids getting computers in their rooms. We could donate it somewhere,
but the CD drive is busted. Oh, well the solution will present itself in
due time.

I ordered EQ4 (hey, look, I got on topic!) and it arrived yesterday. I
got it at the sale price from patchwork planet (planet patchwork?). I
can't wait to try it out! I think it will really help me decide how to
do my MQ.

Speaking of well-muscled, hunky men.........Has anyone seen Mark McGwire in
the 'milk mustache'  ads on billboards and in the latest "Sports
Illustrated for Kids" magazine?  I told my almost8yo that *I* wanted that
page for my sewing room! LOL

To reply take out the 'spam'

Kia Ora,

Thanks to Miz Sairey I have that very same "Milk" ad with Mister McGwire
right here by the 'puter, half a world away, and in a land where the
only thing most people know about baseball is how to spell the word.

He's not quite in the hunt this year as he was last year (- right?) but
he's OK!

Vivien in Auckland, New Zealand (and more knowledgeable than most Kiwis
about Baseball, thanks to RCTQ)

Hi Wendy,
You could keep the computer and network them, or it is always nice to have a
spare.  CD drives aren't that expensive and according to my DH, not
extremely hard to replace.  We have three computers, with two of them
networked so my DH and DS can play game against each other.  All of them
have been put together by my DH.

Or, if you really want to get rid of it, contact your local Junior high or
High school.  The ones around here are always looking for computers for
their technology classes so they can take them apart and put them together.
I don't think it would matter if the CD drive worked in that case or not.

Two years old?  That's new!  I'm still using my 75MHz whiz bang. Four years
old in July and it's amazing how out-of-date stuff gets. I've been checking
prices on a new Dell and the price goes down from one day to the next.  Gee,
by August when I'm ready to order, maybe it will be practically free.   ;-)
