A Little Bit Gets Done After All

Today, the easy transfer cable was delivered so that I could transfer files between the old Dell with Windows Vista to the new Dell with Windows 7 - or Red, as I like to refer to her. I transferred 44 gigabytes of mostly images to Red. Older daughter blanched at that. I only had one small problem in that it also must have set the palm check for the touch pad - which I use instead of a mouse. I kill mice, so I prefer to use the touch pad. Installation of a few programs that Easy Transfer reminded me of was simple to do and I feel like I finally accomplished something.

Thus prepared, I opened up RootsMagic 5 and set about once again doing data entry and image linking. Tomorrow is clean up and re-arrange day. One of grandkitties is coming to visit grammy and grampy this weekend, and we are excited to see her!

  1. And thanks to Carol Bowen Stevens over at for reminding me to install Transcript! I can't live without that program either!
