But not until after the Grandkids got here after noon. And then it was mostly the youngest (Kylie) who just HAS to yell to be heard.
Anywho, our Christmas: I was up early but waited until SWMBO got up before opening my new computer. Itâ€™s an Acer Aspire M3970; has an Intel Core i3-2100 CPU @ 3.1 GHz and 6 Gig of RAM. Came with Windows 7 Home 64-bit. Been setting it up off and on all day.
So far, Iâ€™ve installed X-Plane 9 and Lock-On. Lock-on seems to look and work okay. X-Plane doesnâ€™t run worth crap! Slow, jerky video. I just donâ€™t think this Intel HD graphics built into the mb is any good. Still gonna have to buy a better video card to use my flight sims. Ah well. Not like itâ€™s news or anything.
SWMBO seemed to like getting her Nook Color but has been too busy with the Grandkids to really play with it. Sheâ€™ll get into it though.
Youngest Daughter and her kids came over for the day. Had a great time opening presents and having dinner. Lexi (11) and Rachel (9) even talked on the radio for the 2-meter rag chew at 1930. Cool! All of them seemed to enjoy the presents they got. They should! Grandma (SWMBO) went hog wild getting them iPod-Nanoâ€™s and WIIâ€™s and such!
Got to show Lexi Jupiter through the telescope also. She took a look, said â€œCoolâ€ then went back in cause it was COLD outside! Wimp!
Not much else going on. SWMBO is keeping our youngest Grand-daughter, Kylie, for the night and theyâ€™re in the kitchen finding a snack before trying to get Kylie settled down for the night.
Oh yeah, We had a sudden gust of wind come up that blew a lot of things around outside and had a momentary glitch in the electricity. Rebooted my ham radio! Really. Turned it back on and it was like I just got it from the factory. Had to reprogram everything! Guess itâ€™s time to buy a couple more ups unitsâ€¦
Maybe SWMBO will look for a book to download!
