XP Hell

I finished upgrading my laptop to XP. What a pain that turned out to be. The bulk of the upgrade went without a hitch, but there were tons or drivers and software that had to be uninstalled or upgraded. Luckily, XP actually made a list before it upgraded. Unfortunately, my DVD player and Codecs disappeared. I had to reinstall from my Win98 versions and then upgrade. I hope this is all worth it. I think most of my issues involved laptop hardware. I am going to upgrade my studio computer, which is far less complex, and see how that goes.

Oh, weird thing. The LiveHournal stand alone app lost its dictionary. Go figure.
