It had to happen just before the TGIF party but my trusty old Compaq gave it up and I needed a quick replacement.
Fortunately I had been planning on upgrading soon and had my eye on a new Gateway.
Now powered with 8 gigs of ram and 1TB hard drive I am racing through SL and browsing wonderfully fast. I am so pleased this machine is lean and Windows 7 seems like a treat after the nightmares of XP and Vista.
I had most everything of importance backed up on an external drive already so I lost very little in the demise of the Compaq.
This did leave me in a dilemma. Which viewer to use? I had planned on switching over to Emerald, but with Emerald in disgrace now ultimate demise of the Emerald viewer, I wasn't exactly sure where to go.
Imprudence worked quite nice, but I heard a rumor about the Emergence viewer. It appears to be a temporary viewer cleaned up a bit, by a former Emerald developer. It isn't on the approved 3rd party viewers yer but at least it isn't blacklisted either.
Ill be watching to see if the Phoenix viewer ever gets LL approval as a third party viewer. I can't say the team is worthy of a great deal of trust as it is made up, mostly of the former Emerald Team.
I may give it a try with a close eye on the news. I still have Imprudence to fall back on.
I am still around just been busy.
