Despite being sick, today is a good day——in terms of computer stuff. So I finally set up the 'old' computer outside, and everything worked perfectly. The only problem was getting it to be able to connect to the web once again. So, I spent about 30 minutes today trying to figure out what my options are, with what's available to me (which isn't a lot, believe me!) Glad to say that I lucked out on a clearance network adapter...nervously installed in into one of the free pci slots...and voila!, it's back on. Yipppeee!! I'm so proud of myself! So now, the 'old' desktop has wireless capabilities, too.
yay!! okay...now back to bed! LOL!
