fixing things...

Here is another attempt at loading a video. This one of Gresham was taken a few months ago using our web cam. It's a little shaky and sort-of makes you dizzy when you watch. So, hold on. My digital camera doesn't produce any sound so I can't use it to record. It's amazing how much they learn in such a short time.

Today, I did another one of those "learn as you go" things.

Our home PC has been acting funny for days. Ildi asked me to look at it and figure out what was going on. I spent the better part of the day today looking through files, getting online to check prices out on anti-this and anti-that, and capturing pictures of the dialogue boxes that came up. I emailed my trusted DADY'S friends and told them of the problem. I even mentioned that I would be willing to do a remote assistance with someone who could help me.

As I was digging around, I noticed the System Restore button located in the accessories section. After reading about it for a moment I decided to do a restore to Jan. 4th. Why that date you might ask. Well, my computer was not having any problems in January! When it was all said and done, and the computer rebooted, no more pop up dialogue boxes, no more flashing red X on the screen, no more red X on my hard drive icon, no more problem! I went ahead and backed all the pictures and files up on disk just in case though :)
