Well there is just one week to go to me closing my company, ceasing self-employment and taking early retirement, and I can honestly say I can’t wait.
In preparation for the great day I have been clearing out the office and turning it back into a computer/radio room.
Part of the intention was to cut down on computer equipment and make more room. As part of this I got rid of the two desks that had cupboards each side of the seating position and replaced them with three tables, a great improvement. But not exactly cutting down on stuff.
But the big thing is that I have splashed out on some amateur radio equipment for what must be the first time in around twenty years. So for those interested I am active again on 2MTR and 70CMS FM using my callsign G4PYR. If you hear me on and are able to do so please give me a call.
One other thing I want to do is start scanning my late mothers picture collection. I looked at software to do this and decided in the end that the best software to use came with the scanner. Although this runs on a Mac it is far more flexible on a Windows Machine. So after suitable therapy I have splashed out on a bottom end Dell laptop. I don’t need high specs and the machine I have chose will do the job excellently. So much for having a Windows Free environment!
So onwards with the rest of the weeks excitement.
