I bought my hubby a new computer with the stipulation that I'd get his old PC to use as my "Tinker toy". He had Windows XP Home Edition but the version was kind of messed up where he'd "adjusted" some files. I must explain that while my husband is fully capable of working on cars....computers...not so much. At any rate I was able to successfully do a dual boot install with XP and Ubuntu 9.04. Still the system was slow and after 4 weeks of having both decided to do away entirely with the XP and just reinstall Ubuntu 9.04. Worked like a charm. I set the computer up in the office(across the parking lot--hubby ) since they didn't have anything other than an empty desk there. I was also able to use the WiFi from our apartment to connect to the internet via a wireless card I installed. We have a network printer which I might also try and set up on the box.

Spring Semester winding down

I've worked ahead and finished the homework and final for my Server Administration class. Dr. appts have kept me from attending all the classes but with it being a hybrid I was able to keep up with the work and tests but missed out on some of the hands on learning. My Hardware Support class started up this past week. It's a MiniTerm so there will be lots packed into a short time. Fortunately I was able to go head and do all the 10 Ch. of Homework so I have that out of the way. I need my concentration for the other 3 classes(C++, Adv. Visual Basic and System Analysis & Design)

Spring Semester is 1/2 over

I'm about half way through the Spring Semester. Things are going pretty well. I am having some trouble thinking through the Adv. Visual Basic class but I think the majority of that is from being preoccupied with medical issues and this text book isn't the greatest(yeah I know...blame the book I need to dedicate this week to catching up on my System Analysis & Design projects. My mini term II class(Hardware Support) will begin the first week in March.
