Installing or reinstalling an entire operating system is a slow process. It's what C. spent all weekend doing. It's what I will hopefully be spending no longer than today on. It's a fidgety activity too. Every now and again, my computer needs me to hit enter or choose something from a menu, so I can't get too involved in working on anything.
I've read one article. I planted some morning glory seeds. I backed up data. And that's all I've done today so far.
