Hardware Wars

The first of the two new computers is now installed with files transferred. This was easier there, because I started with the computer that was wiped out by the abortive Windows 10 upgrade, so there was little that needed to be transferred.

The computer that Julie and Gretchen have been using most often has an extensive array of files for Minecraft and Angry Birds that will take a good bit longer to copy...

Done (Nearly)

The two new computers are now in place for Gretchen, Katie, and Julie. I believe that all of the critical files have been transferred, although the old machines will be placed into cold storage for a bit in case I missed anything.

The most entertaining part was transferring all of the Minecraft related items.

The second most entertaining part was getting the old Angry Birds PC games running and their status transferred for Gretchen. Sadly, Rovio has discontinued support for PCs and Macs and I can't find the registration code for Seasons anywhere, so no luck for that game. Ah, well.

I still need to install WordPerfect for Gretchen, but that can wait for a bit.

Heckuva round of Spring Cleaning! :)
