well, kind of. it rained most of the day and felt and looked groomy and dark the rest. a typical November day. I love it. Spent time trying to get the other computer to fire: no go. The hard drive controller seemed to have bitten the dust. after unscrewing bolts and cutting my fingers on sharp metal panels, I discovered why I haven't been doing this for awhile. it's junk. so, that doesn't answer my question on what to do about product refreshing my pc ( a cute wording for replacing one's computer) December should be a great month. " What do you want for Christmas?"
