Like an explosion at PC World

I’ve just spent an evening of migrating the last few grains of data from old PC to new, unplugging everything under the desk and removing the old PC, attacking the dusty space with a Dyson, then rebuilding the new machine in its place.

The proudest moment was undoubtedly getting my (old school) serial port installed on the (new school) motherboard, and working. Top tip: plug it into the COM port on the motherboard and not the spare IEEE1394 port.

It’s all setup and working now. Still have a few printers, a scanner and webcam to install.

Unfortunately our study now looks like an explosion at PC World.

    I wouldn’t say unfortunate! I’d love that, reminds me of when I was fixing up the PC for Papa: Sitting on my floor with laptop on my lap, the Packard Bell with its side panel off in front of me and the Dell sitting behind me with its top off after I took out the CD ROM drive. Tech heaven I say! 😀
