Slowly, Baby Step by Baby Step

The DamnMachine is being resurrected. I put in the new 500 Gig hard drive today and did the initial Windows XP installation. Unfortunately I haven't yet found the CD's with the drivers for my modem and network cards - or any other of my loverly accessories. Which means I can't access the Internet, which means I can't download the missing drivers directly.

True, Baby Dell has rudimentary Internet prowess, but in order to download the drivers on BD, put them on a flash drive and transfer them to the DamnMachine, I would first have to know exactly what devices I have...

If I don't find my CD's pretty soon, I guess I'll have to bite the bullet and call Dell tech support.

And I really don't like talking to that guy with the heavy Indian accent who claims his name is Nathan...

My dearest Wunx, I feel your computer knowledge (i.e. geekiness?) is getting the better of you! Allow me to drag you back into the real world. It's a pc. You know what that stands for, right? Piece of Crap.

Bite the bullet. Buy a new one! Make it a Mac.
