I’ve been a little paranoid about my home office PC for some time now. It was a 2003 purchase that we’ve upgraded a couple of times. But with multiple users, it’s been moving a little slowly. Still, I didn’t have the extra cash laying around that I could justify sinking into a new system. So we stuggled on.
Then, a couple of weeks ago, I got my latest Marriott Rewards catalogue. See, back in another life I pocketed a pile of Marriott points when I was planning conferences all over the country. We’ve held onto them for over 15 years. Of course 15 years ago we had enough to take a cruise. Not so much anymore. So, last week I cashed them in for a new HP comptuter 5 GB hardrive, Windows 7, 20 inch monitor.
Today it came. So tonight I’ve been setting it up and transfering files. I could get used to this.
