In with the new and the old still works.
Got some spring cleaning done to boot (spiderwebs, dust, etc. removed). My daughter helped me with the techy stuff as well as the basics while we chatted. The new IT equipment works and it only took me three online chats with customer support and one phone call to the company who provides us with internet signal. By the time all was said and done, every gizmo in the house worked, including the vacuum cleaner and the vintage stereo.
Bring on the blizzard.
