Configuring Windows XP – Wheeeee!

So my soon-to-be parents in law bought a new computer last week. I was kind of hoping they wouldn’t get bitten by the upgrade bug untill after the wedding, my fianceé (I can never remember if that is supposed to be one “e” or two) and I were planning to buy one for them as a thank you gift.

Anyway, Jenny and I drove up to her parent’s house this weekend to work on wedding stuff – specifically invitations. I feel kind of bad, because I didn’t do any addressing myself. Instead I spent the afternoon installing and configuring their new system. I only hit 2 snags:

1) An impoperly installed printer driver — Easily fixed.
2) A severe case of allergies brought on by the dust and pet hair behind the computer desk — Not fixed, but now bareable.

This blog is being written from thier new machine. This seemed as good a place as any to verify that thier dial-up connection was properly configured. 🙂

Now it’s time to run windows update. I have a feeling that is going to take a while.
