New Computer

Blogging has been light for several reasons; not the least of which is that I have just installed a new Home-Office computer for Emmott on Technology. It is awesome…quad core dual monitors…total geek out.

However even for a big geek like me setting up a new computer is a tedious and frustrating task. However this time I used a slick product that made it much faster and easier. PC Mover from Laplink. I was able to connect the new and old machine with a USB cable and transfer all of my installed applications, all of my data and files and even all of my settings. It worked very well. Not perfect but well.

I still had several irritating issues, like Windows would not recognize my very standard HP printer and the new version of Outlook wouldn’t send out e-mail. But I have it all working now…so far :-).
