My project for Saturday was to clean out the desk and get rid of some old tech items. This was long overdue. The computer the kids use was painfully slow. I had a machine that I was playing with ubuntu on, but since that project is over (i.e. I'm giving up trying to learn linux... again) I loaded windows back on it and got it all set up for home use. Chrome browser with application shortcut to Webkins. Pandora One for Veronica. And I have our data share automatically copying to a mybook for backup purposes.
Our inkjet printer died a while back, so I installed a new one. In the mix, I somehow fried the Dell Laser. I will take it to work to see if it can be fixed.
I then took all our old tech items and threw out what was out of date. Included was an old router, usb hub, and a joystick that had an actual game port connector. I gave the girls some old cell phones, and we are officially cleaned out of any old technology. This is hard for me, since I typically hold onto everything, but its a new day.
