A new step into the wired world of computing! I am now successfully networked to my old computer - the 550 Mhz HP laptop. My new laptop does not have a printer port, so I have to turn both computers on to share the printer that is on the desk.

The neat thing, though, is that I can also access anything in the "My Documents" folder on the other computer as well. It doesn't seem to work in reverse, though.

In fact, it appears that my new Windows XP does not have a built in "Microsoft Works" compatible program. The worksheets from the other computer won't work on this new computer, apparently. I will continue to work on that, though. It seems that MS stuff ought to be backwards compatible.

Well, anyway, I have to bring this blog to an end. I will work out the bugs of this networking stuff later.

You may want to look at this FREE suite of Office-type programs:

Critec Accounting 98

"Critec Accounting 98 is a simple all-purpose accounting program for small businesses. Some features include Invoicing, Purchasing, Cash book, Account Viewer, Fixed Asset Manager, and Reports. It handles Debtors, Creditors, General Ledger, Tax and Inventory."

I am not affiliated in any way; but I dug this info up recently for a friend, so it was easy to retrieve.

If that doesn't solve your situation, go to the base URL:

and search.

Thank you for the links. I will check them out.

By the way, how did you come upon my site? By search, by accident, or by "bestest blog"?

"Bestest blog". That thing can be addictive!

Yes, indeed. The guy has a good idea. Anyway, visit often. I try to post every day. So far, so good. But things happen.

I visited your sites. Your personal blog seemed more interesting, though the blogs about literature were of some interest. You will notice that I do list reading among my interests.
