Friday Night and All's Well ...

Just a quickie from me, to let you know I am still alive ....

I still have a small amount of typing to do ... but it's not due until Tuesday or Wednesday ... so I am going to play with my computer for awhile. I am very excited, as I bought myself an external hard drive today, with 200gig of storage space ... whoo hoo !! I am in the process of transferring photos to it, that I have on disc, so I can play with them, as well as cleaning out heaps of stuff from my little 40gig drive on my laptop, in the hope that it may run faster with less crap on it !!

I have attempted to stop by many of your blogs today ... apologies if I haven't dropped by yours ... I will get there. Thank you to everyone for your wonderful comments re my photos on the last couple of posts.

I would like to wish everyone a wonderful weekend ... stay safe and happy.

I would also like to share with you a quote I found today ...

He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much.
Bessie Anderson Stanley

Take care, friends, until next time ...

Happy weekend too!

Merle said...

Hi Meow ~~ Friday night and all's well. I like this title. I hope you soon get your typing finished.
What a lovely surprise gift. It sure
has been cold this Winter ~ it was Minus 6 a couple of days ago. My bird
bath had a sheet of ice on it, and I'm
not sure if the birds can skate.
Have a great weekend and stay warm.
Take care, Merle.

Clare said...

Have a great weekend Meow :).

Kylee said...

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Amara said...

great blog

Diane said...

Hi Meow, thanks for your comment on my blog. Glad things are going well for you. It's 96F here, hot and sticky, sunny.

Good luck getting your hard drive set up and running. I have a new (to me) one that a friend is giving me soon, and I have to try to get it set up, too, when it gets here. I don't look forward to the techie stuff, but I do look forward to a newer hard drive. This one's a 98SE, and I can't even view some of the videos, music and plugins on some sites, including yours. Wish me luck in getting it set up!!

Wishing you a GREAT weekend, Meow! :-)

Meow said...

Viamarie ... thank you.

Merle ... thank you ... I'm a little bit over the typing ... I think I liked it better when there was nothing particular I HAD to do on the computer, only what I wanted to do. Oh well !!! *Giggle* re the skating birds ... that would be a picture. I have seen Tweety skating, however !! You stay warm, also.

Clare ... thank you.

Kylee ... thank you.

Amara ... thank you and welcome ...I always enjoy meeting new blog friends.

Diane ... I envy you the warmth !! The hard drive I got is not a complete new tower thingy, just a drive, so it was plug in to the USB and power and off I go ... as simple as that. Everything else is still running off the laptop as normal. Good luck in getting your new unit up and running ... it's not really that hard, you'll get there.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends, and take care ... Meow

Autumn said...

Enjoy your weekend, I have to work tomorrow but Im off Sunday Yippie

Dick said...

It is looking like Saturday night in the Pacific NW will be pretty nice weather wise so I think the Miata club trip to the drivein theater will be good. I do look forward to seeing the Cars movie but know nothing about the X-man one that is along with it. I'll have my own car so can leave if I don't like it, unless Cars is the second feature!

Missed this yesterday somehow.

Hi Meow,

Meow said...

Autumn ... hope you don't work too hard Saturday, and enjoy your Sunday off.

Dick ... the X-Men has Hugh Jackman, and is apparently quite good ... if you like that kind of movie !!! Enjoy the evening, I'm jealous !!

DaybyDay ... thank you, I will !!

Bossy Britches ... cheeky !!! Have a great trip, catch ya on the flip side !!

Granny ... Hi Granny !!

Hope your weekend is going wonderfully.
Take care, Meow

Peter said...

Hi Meow, hope you are getting all the files transferred and the laptop speed picks up for you, was it faster before you got so much on it ? Memory is one of the main slow down factors, and XP is a real memory glutton.
Good luck.

Ebun said...

Have a great weekend too Meow.

Cinthia said...

Thanks, Meow. Hope you enjoy your weekend, too. Good luck with your typing!

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

No apologies needed. I have been so busy these past few weeks I’ve really neglected my blog reading.

Meow said...

Peter ... I have all my pictures and music transferred, and now my laptop hard disk is only 1/2 full !!! I guess it was never speedy fast, it only has 256k of memory ... need to get that upgraded !!

Ebun ... thank you.

Cinthia ... thank you.

Nick ... it happens sometimes, doesn't it !!

Take care, all ... Meow

Chloe said...

hello kitty. yay for the new hard drive! i always get excited about these things.

Badoozie said...

gigs, hard drives, that is foreign language to me. i just turn the thing on and hope it works

Meow said...

Chloe ... thanks, I am pretty excited, especially thinking about all the things I can now do that I didn't have the room for ... yay !!

Susie ... that is often a very safe way to think. The less one knows about computers the better, sometimes ... less chance of fiddling and stuffing something up (which I have been known to do !!!)

Take care, friends ... Meow

Sorry I haven't been around this weekend but I have been busy! Looks like you have lots of company! Hubby and I have an external drive that I need to transfer my graphics and pictures to. I have way too much stuff on my laptop. Might add that to this weeks list!!

Have a great week and don't type your fingers off!!

Meow said...

Reverberate ... it's cool, I haven't been around much this weekend either. I'm about to figure out what to post today, then I am going visiting to everyone's blogs ... hopefully I'll get through them all. Good luck with your file transfer ... it's kind of time consuming, but worthwhile, I feel.
Take care, Meow
