A hellish day

February 16th, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

I hate it when my family gets new computers.

First, they always expect me to set it up. No problem–I love setting up new technology. The killer is getting my dad’s Quicken files all backed up. What’s worse–we were going from Quicken 2005 XP to Quicken 2008 for Vista. Holy hell. It turned out to be simpler than I was making it, but my dad was saving all his quicken files to the backup folder, and to top it off, the computer was reading them from some other location. So, even though I backed up the “Backup” folder, none of those files were current. So we had to go and sort through three different versions of Quicken before we could find the most current files… it sucked.

On the bright side, the new computer my family got is a workhorse. 3.2 GHz quad-core with 3GB of RAM and a 512 NVidia Geforce 8600 GT. Nice.

Now I’m off to a friend’s concert. Later…

Jon
