Secret Plots Redux

In this post from about a month ago, I describe a plan to get decadentdave a new/old computer along with modern screen-reading software. Shortly after that, daisy_knotwise was diagnosed with endometrial cancer (since happily removed) and life got a bit busy on this end of the world.

In the meantime, I have successfully resuscitated the dual-processor Windows XP Professional system. I have ordered the 60-day trial version of Window-Eyes which appears to be a good choice, although Dave would be a better judge of that once he gets his hands on the software.

And Karen Cooper has thoughtfully volunteered to accept contributions via PayPal at karenc@visi.com. Or you could send me a check at 725 Citadel Ct., Des Plaines IL 60016 if that's simpler for you.

We'll still need to sort out the logistics of getting the working computer to Winnipeg, but I suspect it can be mongoled there through Mpls. We'll see...

So, shall we begin?
