Finally! Computers are a pain

So if you have read my other blogs you have noticed that I got a new computer...and then got another new computer a week later.

I just received the "replacement" computer this morning and I have spent all day setting it up.

I tried to talk my boss at work that my employer should by me one as I can work from home but that went over like a ton of bricks.
