Not much to report. Just got back to 'normal' again after Christmas season festivities, house guests etc.
I want to experiment with my computer a bit more - I am a pretty 'reserved' comp user and certainly to do not use it anywhere near its full potential. So one resolution is to increase my knowledge of just how much and just WHAT it can do. That will be solely by trial and error and a venting of my anger with bad language and a stamping of keys. So hope there will something left of this laptop once I have mastered some of the ingenious 'whateveryouwanttocallthem' of this space age device!
