To Celebrate My Birthday

... we've been replacing my work PC, which accelerated its previously-slow decline yesterday, and decided to end it all quickly.

So instead of a 2005 XP system with 1.2GB of RAM, now I have a 2013 Windows 7 with 4GB. Much better.

So we got all the data & programs transferred, and everything's working ... except the driver for my all-in-one printer/fax/scanner/copier was for XP/Vista. Working on getting the up-to-date driver now, and then it will all be better.

sigh.................

Just as long as nobody tries to make you change to Windows 8. At that point the concept of justifiable homicide will go into effect.

And Happy Birthday!

That's pretty much what I told the IT folks yesterday, word for word.

Thank you!

Yeah Winblows 8 is proof that there is no hell and the living dead design user interfaces for Microsoft.

This is Windows 7 -- just plug in your printer and let Windows find the driver.

Heh Happy birfday RP sorry was out all day.

Rev. Paul said...

Keads, I agree. W8 is pretty much teh suck, and sales are plummeting.

Gordon R. Durand, it couldn't. But HP has a driver for that model specifically for W7, so all is well. Now.

Preppy, no worries - and thanx!
