He hasn't backed up the stuff on the old desktop yet... he said he was going to do that this evening. So, sometime tomorrow, I'll do the reformat of the hard drive. I'm going to just TRY using the full Vista disc first, to see if the key on the sticker on the computer case will stick, as suggested by kuzanagi_. If it doesn't, then I'll just use the recovery discs I made when I originally got the computer.
Also yesterday, I picked up the complete series set of "It's Garry Shandling's Show". Used to watch it regularly back in the 80's on Showtime... but you don't see it repeated much on TV anymore for some reason.
In other news... wondering what has become of one of my other LJ friends, indigomittens. She hasn't posted anything since early November, hasn't been on messenger, and even her other friends on Facebook are wondering why she has been so quiet. Hope she is okay.
I've been rather "lazy" today, need to wash some clothes and dishes, but may put those chores off till tomorrow. Heck, been so lazy, it's almost 1:30 in the afternoon, I haven't even gotten dressed yet!
