New computer, a work in progress...

Recently, as in just this weekend, I was the recipient of a wonderful hand-me-down...  an 18 month old Dell laptop with almost all the bells and whistles that a girl could want or need...  Thanks, Dad!  

I'm really enjoying my new laptop, the hubby and I now each have our own, so EXCITING, right?!  The only problem is that all of my files, pictures and other goodies are on "the hubby's" computer...  I stayed up the other night after the big birthday party and tried to transfer them over with a cable we bought years ago, but I may be running into the problem that the new computer uses Windows 7 and "the hubby's" uses Vista, and BTW I say "may" because I wasn't in the mood to install the software onto either computer to see if that would make it work, so I don't know forsure that it doesn't work.  And boy do I need those files, everytime I go to do something Etsy, Facebook or blog related I'm having to remind myself that I don't have the files I need on the new laptop...  kinda irritating and one would think that I would take the few minutes necessary to get the files copied, but nope, I haven't talked myself into that one yet.

I'm so excited to continue my adventures with the new laptop, maybe I'll find some time tomorrow to finally transfer everything... 

I'll keep you posted on this whole silly ordeal.

Pin It!


  1. Love the new blog Steph! Hey I was wondering...have you thought about getting an external hardrive? Transfer all your goodies from "Barrets" computer to the external...that way there everything is safely backed up (just incase of a computer CRASH) and you can access all those files from BOTH computers wirelessly. *Disclaimer* Please don't ask me how this is done...I only know that it CAN be done! If you are interested in this method, I would consult Bogie and he will be able to tell you everything you need to know!! :) Good luck!

  2. We acutally have one, but lost the powercord when we moved back in October and we haven't made it a priority to buy a new one yet. But I will definitely have to figure out how I can back up to it wirelessly.
