Greetings from new computer-land!

Yeah, finally got my new computer all set up. Actually, it's been up and running since late-Monday. But what with babysitting the next day and realizing how close it's getting to nano and how much work I still have left to do, I haven't had a chance to post any earlier. I am -still- up in the air about my alien guy's name, though I may just go with Polaris, despite the fact that's also the name of an X-man. Well, X-woman. But that's her hero-name and not her name-name, so I think I'm in enough of a gray area to be okay.

Anyway, yeah. New computer. It's a lot to get used to. Windows 7 is -vastly- different from XP, for a start. But I'm slowly getting the hang of it. I also ended up getting Word 2010 (and a few other Office programs bundled in) for a bargain as well. Haven't really used it yet, but on first check-out Nano is definitely gonna be an interesting writing experience. The new keyboard doesn't help, everything's so much closer together and my really good typing skills are going a little off-the-rails. But again, practice and all that, and before I know it I'll be back up to my usual blazing speeds.

I do love the widescreen monitor we got. Haven't watched any videos on full-screen yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it looks. Though again, compared to the last screen,both in size and clarity, it's a whole new ballgame.

Nothing else really to report. Haven't re-installed AIM yet, too busy with researching and planning for Nano and babysitting the new kidlet and so on. Speaking of which, I am definitely going to have to start lifting weights or something. My poor aching everything, carrying around a baby was not nearly this difficult five years ago. I ache in places I forgot could ache.

So yeah. Lots of new and interesting things to learn and re-learn. Let's just hope I get into the swing of things by November.
