Computer upgrading babble, Squeaky's vet visit (all is well, trying high fiber food).

Laurel fussing at her computer not doing exactly what she wants when she wants has been making me feel unreasonably irritable. This will be relieved soon with upgrading of her computer (whee sale finds at Fry's) but I am leaving that to Vogon since I do not have a good track record of putting new components together. (I am fine with adding something to an existing system, but the last few times he's left me to assemble an entire system it has ended in frustration and him doing it anyway.)

Right now there are five CPU cases in our main living area. Three are new (for a file server and new builds/rebuilds of Laurel's and Vogon's systems) and two are old pending recycling (my-just-replaced tower and a ten-year-old Dell case). Also four boxes that cases came in and their *cringe* Styrofoam packaging. It's like Christmas without the stockings and extra teeth-skreeking Styrofoam. And I have to continue reinstalling applications on my just-replaced system, so I am currently just puttering along until I remember "Oh hey! I don't have [x] installed yet" and get sidetracked doing that. It's not bad, just funny that I haven't realized what applications I depend on and how often until I want to access them.


We took the Squeaky to the vet on Monday morning. Everything's normal (no sign of worms!) but he's a few pounds over where the vet recommends he weigh, so we are introducing Hill's Prescription Diet w/d to up the fiber in his diet and see how that helps his digestive issues. Squeaks also rode in the carrier without messing in it, a first for him. Thanks, radixx, for suggesting we put a bit of food in with him to prevent that.
