Wednesday 23

Wednesday 23- I did my stretches and ran two miles; it was a very cold and windy run!
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 31 and 51 degrees, NW winds of 12to16 MPH, humidity around 36 percent, mostly clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Thursday: Sunny, with a high near 53. North northwest wind between 10 and 13 mph. Thursday Night: Clear, with a low around 33. North northwest wind around 7 mph.”
The dang bird feeder fell out of the tree and spilled all the seeds on the ground that the squirrels quickly devoured. I refilled it and stuck it back up while the birds watched from afar. As soon as I left they pounced on it!
I decided to install Win 2000 on the old Toshiba Tecra 730XCDT. It has a whopping 2Gig hard drive, a Pentium MMX 150, and 48Megs of RAM! It took hours to install the OS and I let it finish while I went for my evening walk and then over to Stoney’s for dinner. We watched “Man Vs Food” on the Travel Channel; I just can’t believe how much food that guy can put away!
Win2000 had finally finished by the time I got back and then I installed the updates I have on CD for it; that took a few hours! I watched “My Name is Earl” and I think it was the last episode! It was one of the best sitcoms I’ve seen in a longtime, and it had a meaning to it too! I practice my guitar as the updates finally finished. I took the old Tecra online with the PCMCI 3 COM 56k modem and it surprised me. I used the K-Mellon web browser and it performed just fine for such an old machine that was built for Win95. I think I’ll ask J (Name withheld) if she would like it back now that it’s working better.
I watched the Jay Leno Show; did my stretches; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
