Post 3617 - The Weekend IS Here

Finally. At long last, the weekend is here.

The tall ships are in town. We are avoiding that part of town this weekend. I volunteered for the tall ships festival in 2007. The experience was so negative that it turned me off even wanting to watch the damn things. I mean, if that is what floats your boat, go; but I won't be there with you.

We haven't quite decided what we will do this weekend, yet. Patricia wants to go to a farmer's market on Saturday, so we likely will. Maybe a day trip to Hubbards or Mahone Bay or something. We will have to see.

Patricia has a thing on Sunday, so I will be batching it that day, if only for a few hours. Have many things to do.

There is an episode of The Big Bang Theory in which Sheldon announces that rather than go out with the boys that night, he is going to stay home and refresh the operating system on his laptop. The laugh track comes on. Very funny. Ha ha. The only thing is, that is an actual thing.

Thursday night, when I should have been going to bed, I was instead installing Linux Mint on a solid state drive and then making that drive the primary drive for this computer. I tried to format the former primary drive, but I couldn't for some technical reason/bug in linux. I had to install gparted this evening and use that to partition the original drive, which got rid of the contents on the drive (sort of, if you catch my drift). That has worked well. I am now installing dropbox on the SSD and synchronizing that content. I also backed up a lot of the content from the original drive Thursday night, and will shortly start copying some of that stuff back to that newly-repartitioned drive.

I don't hear a laugh track. Maybe I should turn off the radio.

I did all this work because this is a really old computer that moans and groans when I ask it to do much of anything. I figure installing a SSD will speed it up. Next week, I will buy more ram for it as well to make it that much more useful, for I hope another couple of years.

Still not hearing that laugh track. If I had Sheldon Cooper's delivery, people would be rolling in the aisles.

I think I will turn in. I'm a little hurt.

See you tomorrow.
