It seems I've finally reclaimed my desktop! After my old Norton expired in June I installed the 2nd copy of the multiple license I bought for the laptop on it. I had to install it 4 or 5 times to get it to work right, then everytime I tried to do something it decided it needed to update. I was getting out the laptop more and more because this one would just "bog down" and I'd finally have to reboot it to use it for another half hour.
Last week I read something about AVG, a freeware anti-virus, and said something about trying it while I was at John's on Easter. He said to try turning off the Norton auto-update feature, so I got around to that last night when I got home. The computer still did the same thing, but when I rebooted it I got an error code from Norton (the same one as in my initial installations) and my old Gateway is back to it's old self.
So over the weekend I'm going to try removing Norton and installing AVG to see how that plays out.
I do love having my split keyboard back, though, after feeling like I was trying to knock my elbows together on the straight one on my laptop!
For those who asked, there is a channel called "The Gameshow Network" that runs the original "What's My Line" at 2AM central and "I've Got a Secret" at 2:30am. They used to have a way you could watch online, but I'm not sure if they still do or not...I don't have a lot of time to explore their revamped website right now.
"What's My Line" is in episodes from the early 50's right now; "I've Got a Secret" is in the early 60's episodes.
I heard Carl Reiner in an interview a year or so ago talk about watching these just to see all his old friends...
Time to nuke a chicken pot pie and get ready for work!
May you each have a wonderful Friday and may the weekend be kind!
