Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well!
I have been making some good progress in getting my photos organized, although I still have a long ways to go! I’ve been working at it for at least 30 minutes to an hour each day and I have deleted quite a few extra copies of photos. I have also separated them all according to surnames and, in my case, according to the names of siblings and parents. It makes it easier! I started out with over 37,000 files and I can’t really say how many I have now but I know it is significantly lower! I also started with only 11GB free on the 50GB partition I am using. That is now up to 25.4GB free! It’s a slow process but it is coming along well.
My other project is one that I just started yesterday. I discovered that Dear Myrtle was helping folks get organized by publishing a checklist at the beginning of each month. Unfortunately, I am running a month behind but it just means I have to work hard at catching up. Perhaps when they get to the part about making a blog or something like that I will be able to catch up some, since I already have that done! Anyway, on with the update. I have taken the first step, which is signing up for and downloading Dropbox. I must say that it was very easy to set up and I am excited about the possibilities of using this. I have started the second step, setting up my computer the way I want it, but that might take a little bit! If you look at the picture in my last post you will see that I have quite a bit on my desk, including two computers! I have taken down the second computer and moved it to another place in the house. That has freed up quite a bit of room and I have already set up my scanner so that it is handy and repositioned some other things on my desk, such as moving the speakers lower and the subwoofer to the floor. I also screwed the three-connection cable adapter up on the wall to help get rid of some of the wire clutter. You can already tell a big difference! Here is a picture of how it looks currently: Realize that it is a work in progress!
I have taken the day off tomorrow so I will have a three-day weekend this week. I hope to use some of that time to finish setting up my computer the way that I want it!
I’ll try to fill you all in on my progress later.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
