progress of the progressing

Computer switchover achieved. I dealt with all the data before Christmas, but now I’ve got the physical setup in place. It’s not quite ideal; I need to replace my keyboard (the old one being non-USB, the USB loaner being non-ergonomic), and I decided to just stick my laptop on the monitor stand rather than mess with making it recognize my dinosaur of a CRT, but it’s working.

And the office itself is approaching something like clean! Which is not the victory it looks like, since, well, that cleanliness was achieved by creating a mighty stack of Papers To Be Sorted, but the psychological effect is not to be discounted. Now I’m going to go downstairs and Sort What Needs Sorting while watching Prince Caspian on our shiny new Blu-Ray player. (This was the big “Santa present” for kniedzw; mine was a new digital camera, replacing the one that went belly-up in Athens.)

I’m feeling like I might be able to get real work done tonight.

    In an amusing bit of synchronicity, I’m in the midst of Epic Cleaning myself.

    It’s like a Plot Coupon sequence:

    Clean Closet so you can > Clean out desk so you can > Switch desks so you can > Clean out under bed so you can > Get new bed that is made of win instead of FAIL.

    Good luck!

      Heh. Yeah, it’s jumping through one hoop after another. For me it was cleaning the desk so I could both switch the computers and sort papers, and all the rest follows from there.
