Israel: T - 2 Days!



6:30AM - Why two days in Miami?
Reader Steve wrote asking, "Why are you staying two days in Miami and not flying thru to Israel?"

That's a great question! An extra day is needed to transfer everything from Ms. GQ, our old laptop to our new Sony VAIO laptop computer. Ms. GQ was purchased in October, 2005, and is literally falling apart. Several screws from inside Ms. GQ have dropped out during the past couple of months. A very bad thing. Ms. GQ's keyboard has worn away, and several keys have no description. And finally, the four directional arrow keys don't work anymore.

Also, Ms. GQ does not operate fast enough in today's demanding computer environment.

Sony VAIO.
Yes! We bought a new laptop computer from Amazon.com
Sony VAIO VGN-NR330E/S 15.4" Laptop 1.73 GHz Intel Pentium Dual Core T2370 Processor, 2 GB RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive, DVD Drive, Vista Premium

This Sony VAIO was shipped to reader/friends Jim & Chris Guld, known as "Geeks on Tour" [link]. Jim & Chris are here in the Miami area visiting with their family.

9:30AM to 2:30PM - Transferring files.
Jim Guld has hooked up a cable between our old laptop and the new Sony laptop. However, there are problems. The connection is sort of flakey. We decide to go with a purchased software names "PC Mover." This software seems to work.
