Networked!

Writing from the scary, cold basement. So laptop is online, not a great thing, but the file sharing will be good, also if I'm writing and need a research fact, that too will be good.

I will shortly be setting up a Wordperfect macro. "SaveToS" which is "Save to S Drive," which will be EITD in the Shared Documents file. So, one punch of a toolbar button and the document will save to laptop, desktop and baby. I'll also be able to hit a different button and mail a backup to my gmail account. And work on the porch or the patio.

WOW.

Working down here will be a real boon in the summertime, I have a table that I can set up and when I put in the new furnace a few years ago, it needed a pump and so I have a real light switch and extra outlet...

I had a geek friend who was out of work do this for me.

I'm happy.

Love to all,
Robin

We are looking at some HOT temperatures this coming weekend. I am trying to figure out how to get the bed down into my husband's office which is in the cellar. Has to be way cooler.

Do you write full time now? Your bio says you're a paralegal. When do you find time to do that and destroy peoples frigs at the same time!

Reader, actually, as happens to most geeks at one time or another, he is out of a job, so I paid him and also gave him an expensive wi-fi card that I hadn't unwrapped.

Tine, I hope the basement works for you. I have fans, but that's it. When I think of putting in an all house fan, it just makes me shudder.

Tannun, LOL, I got laid off a while back and am now living (mostly) on a second mortgage and (a little) on my writing, so I've been a full time writer...and believe me, doing a 638 pg book in 5 months is work!
