Things are looking up, though. A new computer has arrived, and I’m looking forward to setting it up and using it. I’ve also got a work-around to keep my old notebook computer running a bit longer, and it is almost at the point where I can spend more time using it for productive work than just setting it up. Actually, setting up a computer is not exactly unproductive. It is like sharpening an axe. In all of the Bible translation software development work I do, I use a computer set up with many different software packages: about 60 different installations. Unfortunately, most of those have to be done one at a time, at least under Microsoft Windows. Some have online updates and activations that have to be done. All this take time, and lots of it. Sure, I could do a disk image back up and restore… if restoring to an identical hardware configuration, and if I had an image that worked properly in all respects. 🙂 On the bright side, I’m getting pretty good at reinstalling everything. 🙂
The last few months have been challenging to me, in terms of fighting frustration. My computer work has been like trying to run with lead weights on my feet. In a swamp.
