Moving Day

Not the house, just the computer. I wanted more room to spread papers out by the computer. In the end I decided the best place for it was my sewing room/studio. So I took the plunge and moved it up here. So easy! It's an iMac G5 (I think, I have to check the box, not being very techy). All I had to do was unplug it from the printer and the wall, pick up the screen, pick up the keyboard and carry it upstairs. So light, considering it's not a laptop. What about the hard drive? Well, it's hiding somewhere. In the back of the flat screen, I think. I didn't even have to reconnect to the internet. We have all our family computers networked, and I have a wireless connection, so it just goes.
I still need to move the printer. And the desk I put it on up here is too high, and I'm rapidly getting neck strain. So I have to figure out where I can make room for the computer desk that it was on before.
One nice thing about it being dark when I come home in winter - just as I leave work, I get a great view of the sun setting over the Southern Alps.

Stunning photo! And isn't it great how technology has improved so that it's not such a big deal to move a computer from one place to another?

Thanks for the compliments everybody. I fiddled with it in Photoshop a bit. I made the sky colours more intense, and I selected the mountains and lightened them to bring out the snow. I think it looks more like what I saw this way. Strange how the camera doesn't seem to see what we do.

Lovely photo- Isn't moving the computer almost as great a challenge as moving the house? I hate to have anything done to my computer it is quite a temperamental thing :)
