Our last "animal-sitting"day!

Goodmorning everybody!

If all is happening today as it should, we shall say goodbye to our "guest"pets. I had a phonecall from Heidi this week-end and she said she will come to pick them up this afternoon. Yesterday I went over to her house to collect the post and I put some things in her fridge. So she has now some fresh bread, some bacon, ham, cheese, a little salad for the bread, eggs, tomatoes. If she doesn't want to cook this evening or go out for dinner they have still something to eat and for breakfast tomorrow too.

I planned to go on with the kit I started, but I had a little head ache, so I left it as it was and closed the computer. After dinner I took an aspirine and it helped well. And I did go to bed not too late and had a good nights sleep. So all well today. Have to move on now with some new stuff.

I have a question for you. Perhaps somebody knows an answer to it and has a simple tutorial for it for me, dummie as I am. As I saw on the new computer all the diskspace is only on the C disk. But I like to have a D and perhaps even an E. I like to divide the 360 GB in some parts. But I have no clue how to do that. Anybody out there who has done this???? It should be great if you could help me in this. Saw on internet several items on it, but I do not understand it very much.

If you know and can help me, you leave me a message in the shoutbox or email me. Okay?

Kit for today is a bit science related. As inventions take place all the time, I thought it might be a nice idea to make a kit with it. I had to choose only a few, otherwise it would be too big. So I choose mostly some really important (as I thought) inventions of the 19th and 20th century. Perhaps you can use this kit for something, I hope. It was nice to make it, something quit different. I hope you can have fun with it.

I think that during the day I have to run the washing machine(again, pfffffff) and have to get rid of some stuff in the basket, waiting to be ironed, yak, yak, yak!! It's one of the EVER returning things I do not like specifically! But it will put my shoulders under it and when I go for it, in half an hour you can do a lot of ironing! And then the most boaring, getting it all in the closets on its place. So I am really suffering today, (wheep, wheep). LOL !!!!!!!!

Okay, here is the kit, and also thanks for all your enthousiastic reactions on the news of my computer. You all are very sweet!

Good Morning Kyra:)
Thank you soo much for correcting the link for your Arabian kit.:) I didn't make it back yesterday to get it.:) Dh said the easiest way for you to do the partitioning of your drive is to purchase a program for it."Norton Partition Magic" is a very good software for partitioning your hard drive.He just looked and it is $69.95 to buy the dwnld and another $9.95 if you want a CD sent to you. He said there are other methods to partition your drive using other methods but it is somewhat complicated and you would need to know the terminology in order to do it without messing up your files. He said in order to research it on your computer...

Go to 'Start" ..right click on "Computer" left click on "Manage" and then click "Help Topics" and then at the top says "Disk Management Welcome" click the "+" sign to expand the menu and then under "Manage Basic Volumes" the "+" and click "Shrink a Basic Volume" and you will find some some info about it and cautions too.:)Hope this helps.:)

What you probably want is disk partitioning software. It's easier for those of us who aren't computer geniuses. I think you can get good ones from the free download sites like CNet.

I will comment on the disk partition for you. Usually you have to format the partition when there is nothing on the drive at all yet. Often, when you get a computer they have already made a second partition where they put back-up Operating System (OS)files. But once the disk partition is made, be it one big one like yours or many smaller segments, you cannot change the size(s) without reformatting which erases your data, including your OS, in your case Vista. There may be a program you can purchase that will allow you to do what you want without erasing your data, make sure it is Vista compatible before you buy it. My experience with this is only XP and external hard drives, Vista may have some added features or quirks! I might just make some folders at the level of the My Documents folder for what I wanted to keep separate. Hope this helps!
