Old Mac is Back!

I finally got my new hard drive, installed it with the help of some very generous people on the Internet who've been down that path before, and got my software installed, all of which means that I can now edit video, record audio, and do my websites with my favorite familiar tools. That also means I can update the site more regularly.

I was able to get some pictures up using the Windows machine, but the pathway for getting pictures onto the computer, particularly from the family phones, is much less convenient, for me at least, than the system I had with the Mac. I've already got some pictures queued up, and I'm going to try to get the family, all of whom have phones with cameras now (hint, hint) to submit pictures to me on at least a weekly basis.

Spring is here, at least the New Hampshire version of it. There's still snow on the ground in patches, and we are expecting one or two small, slushy storms before the temperature really starts to rise, but we can feel it coming. And in this house, in the Spring, a young man's fancy turns lightly to thoughts of driver's ed. Much to the chagrin of the young man's parents.

William will definitely have a job this summer, and might have two, so it has become imperative that he learn to drive. He hasn't been champing at the bit. The one job last summer was cycling distance, and he has enough friends who drive that his social life has not been too restricted by the lack of a license.

On the other hand, William will be an adult come this October. Yikes. So it's about time.

Right now, though, it's about time for me to move on to other things, with the promise that there is more to report soon. But if I spend to long with this, those pictures I have in queue will not be transformed into pictures that are actually posted on the site.
