The new PC has arrived and is online.
It's absolutely wonderful ! After using the dinosaur for so long it is really nice having a proper PC at home.
The scanner won't work with Vista even though I downloaded a new driver. I'll probably put the old dinosaur back online and network the two.
I'm having a problem publishing to the Comcast pwp........the fix suggested by the Comcast tech didn't work. I may be able to access the pwp page with the old XP when it gets back online. We'll see.
