Skywatch Friday - Yellow Balloon

Skywatch Friday - Yellow Balloon

This balloon is actually tethered to the ground and you pay to float up over the San Diego Wild Animal Park. At first I thought of going up but it was a little pricey and I just wanted to keep my feet on the ground that day.

We upgraded are business computer to a new Imac yesterday so there was a lot of networking to do with the other machines. We got a Maxtor Central Axis one TB (1,000 gigabyte) Network Storage Server also. It isn’t really a time to be upgrading but some of our computers were still on System 8 if you can believe that (released 1998). Things just keep getting more and more incompatible so it was time. The Maxtor can back up the Macbook Pro from my office so it has a dual role. It is a little difficult getting Karen up to speed on the Mac and setting everything up. I got a little headache and had to stop for a while but everything will run a lot smoother in the long run.

Here is another San Diego sunset picture. * sigh *
