May be some of you already saw the message from me in the shoutbox. Yes, I couldn't wait till now. Okay, I have my computer finally, after talking months about it. Rob and his son Dominique of 15, came and we went to the store(with a little luggage carrier with us, you know, such a small thing you can fold out on two wheels). I just looked to a few options that Rob already pointed out to me and I kicked myself under my bumb and took not the cheapest one. But neighter it wasn't a very expensive one. I wrote all the specifics now down on a piece of paper, because I never can remember all the mumbo-jambo. Here it comes:
It's a Packard Bell containing:
AMD 64x2 4400+ processor
3 GB DDR2
360 GB (!!) 7200 rpm Sata harddisk
nVidia Ge Force 8400 GS up to 1535 mb
DVDRW Dual + R9
8 in 1 memory card reader
LCD monitor 22 inch
and Vista Premium
For you who understand a bit more about this technical stuff, you can see I have a fast working computer with a lot of disk space. It should be working much faster on the graphic programs.
And I also bought a new printer with copier and scanner. WOW!!!
I wanted just to get this thing and store it for a few days and then Rob could come again to help me with placing all the things from my old one to the new one etc. But he already wanted to connect it so that at least I already could use internet on it and get used to the new thing. So therefore there was no freebielist yesterday. I was totally done when he left at 19.00 o'clock!!
But.... it's working and oh boy, did I notice already the difference. Wonderful. So if you could see me sitting at the little desk now you should laugh! There are standing now TWO computer screens and keyboards on it. I just have to switch now the internet cable to the one I want to use. It's only for this week, next Saturday we will install(hopefully) all on the newand then I really can try it out. It will take a while before I get the grip on the Vista and all around it, so if sometimes things aren't going as they should, it is the getting used to it process that is playing me tricks, perhaps.
You really cannot know how happy I am, because this is also the first one I bought myself> The other two were given to me by Rob, who had the spare and the other by Heidi, who also bought a new one some time ago. And I always remain very greatful to them, because it opened a whole world for me and resulted in this blog!!
Okay, enough computer stuff for now. I don;t want to boar you with it. Let us see what I have for you today. Hey, it is a Araban styled kit, with some papers with a drawing out of the 1001 nights story and some which are not completely, but still Arabian. The backing papers are made out of arabian patterns. Well, I just hope you will like the kit and can use it a bit.
I wish you all a very nice Sunday, I am packed with things to do, as making a start with a new kit, going over to Heidi's house for a last check-up(she's coming home tomorrow), have a nice dinner in mind, and must do the freebielist and then I don't think I will play on the new computer anymore. Perhaps I can do a bit of reading in the instruction books I got to familiarize myself a bit with all.
