Took forever to give it what updates it recommended, but now I can't set up the email. Couldn't get the mac email and couldn't get the google email (gmail sent me a warning that an 'insecure device' tried to use it.) I'm going to TRY the 'migration assistant' from this puter (if I can find the right cable to connect the two puters) and see if I can get it to do at least ONE email.

Otherwise... eh. May run out of time. I have to finish picking up the yard, can't be forever fighting this beast.

My back hurts from all the bending over...

On the bright side! I remembered I have a portable DVD player. I was just watching on the desktop (bigger screen better viewing angle) but I located the player, and its battery and its power cord and plugged it in. With LUCK maybe it'll have enough power to show one movie?

Ok, I give up on the craptop-the only two ended firewire cables I have are the ones I use on my portable hard drives & when I tried putting on into the craptop it warned that it would overload the hub (and it wasn't even plugged into anything else) Also the system can't be upgraded enough for me to use Google Chrome, but at least MacSafari works. At this point spending more time on it is a waste.

It looks like I MIGHT be able to use it to comment on the internet, but that's about it. Will test that later, gotta go do more yard picking up.

If I was nearer I would install Linux on it for you.

I'd be surprised if Lubuntu wouldn't work on that actually, but a nice new computer is a good Surviving a hurricane present.

I got a call from our lovely Marian and she's doing fine. She's without power, but she's got a roof over her head. So, yay!!
