And The Rain Came Down!

And kept coming. Then came some more. Downpours. Overflowed my gutters (all of them at once) a couple of times. I’d never seen it rain that hard here. Only heard thunder once and looking at Windy.com I only saw lightning east and west of me. Ah, well. We got some rain though.

Used SWMBO’s laptop the other day and almost smashed the thing from it being so slow. Really slow. Like click on Firefox and wait 5 minutes slow. Asked her if it’s always this slow and she said “yep.”

So I’m setting up one of my laptops with Linux Mint xcfe for her to “play” with. The only thing she needs from her windows computer to work is a program called Roots Magic. And that all her data gets copied to the “new” computer (duh).

So I copied all of what looks like her data to a thumb drive and got it copied. Installed Wine and the Roots Magic program seems to be working perfectly. Put a couple of solitaire games on and I think that’ll be good. Audacious to play music. Smplayer to play video’s (with VLC on there as a backup in case she doesn’t like smplayer.) Got her Firefox all set up and all her links/passwords in and working. Set up Google Drive (she’ll have to visit onedrive and dropbox online if she needs to). I’ll do Thunderbird tomorrow.

Another heavy rain passing through.

Otherwise, not a whole lot going on around here. Me and the Dog drive to the mailbox everyday (except Sunday of course). We don’t really get out a lot. Need to rent a digger for a day but think I’ll wait until the end of the week. Hopefully it won’t be raining.

Replaced two of the “boob” lights in the big room with 11″ round led lights. I’ll do two more tomorrow then will need to buy 4 more at Home Depot this week. Seems like there’s always something to do around here!

Oh, finally learned to make decent “fries” in the air fryer.

And I hope SWMBO gets to come home by then too. We really miss her around here.
