i would LIKE to post you what i got from the advent calendar today, but apparently there's a bug and we all get NUTTIN'.

neopoints delimma: i created accounts as warehouses, if you will, for donations for my guild. i know the password and not the birthdate i entered it (considering i created the things like four or more years ago and didn't use my own birthday), so it's not letting me in. i'm afraid of sending the help team an email and them freaking out because i have several accounts (though it's used for the guild.) every guild i've been in has done the same thing, would they be willing to help or would they freak out and freeze my accounts?

inquiring minds want to know.

and i'm now on jess's old computer/my new computer, which is incredibly faster than my old. i just realized, though, that all my livejournal posts and emails for the last several MONTHS are on outlook on my old computer, so i must figure a way to get it onto this computer, as well as try to find my office disc so that i can HAVE word and outlook on this computer. i also need to figure out a way to hook up my 120 gig internal with his other two that are hooked in here... is that possible? if nothing else, i can rebuild my old computer and transfer information over somehow...

but ug.

in other news: snapple makes good mango green tea and apple black tea. i know. i'm just as surprised as you are. (and i HATE fruity teas.)

i dreamed that i went back to Monticello (yes, again) and went into a family's house across the street from where i lived when i was four, just so i could pet their dog and gaze out the window at what used to be my house. it looked absolutely nothing like the green house i lived in - someone had added to it to make it a really nice gimonstrous blue/grey house. i kept telling the family that there is just nothing sacred about childhood homes, that no one cares if what they do to it completely consecrates all your old memories and destroys them forever. i was completely expecting to get sick from hugging and petting the dogs (as i'm allergic IRL), but didn't care and hugged one of them for all it was worth.

the house i had gone into was a family creating a commune of sorts. they removed all doors from all of the rooms, saying that there was no secrets in their house. they had several teenage daughters, and as i used to hang out there or something, i knew some secret hideaways where they could get some privacy, as all teenage girls should get privacy.

i then left the house and walked across the street (which had become a thick woods area) and into a log cabin. during my walk, i had magically transformed into a little house on the prairie-ish outfit, all dark, hardy wools. i went into the cabin and started making bread, and Daniel Jackson came in and gave me a giant hug from behind and thanked me for being such a remarkable woman.

hard drive possibles.
you can turn the old internal into an external with the purchase of a magical little box, or if there is enough slots/cables and power, you can use it internally (and thats faster, but possibly not needed?).

Re: hard drive possibles.
or i could just hunt down a six pack of pumpkin ale and bribe dispossessed into coming over and helping ;)

just to FIND the pumpkin ale. for being created in these parts, it's mighty difficult to locate.

I have the ENTIRE Microsoft Squite (I think 2000??); I can burn it for you and mail it, if you like; just let me know!

Also: I HIGHLY recommend you download Thunderbird from Mozilla (same peeps who do Firefox). Seriously. I used to use it (now I just use Gmail) and it's wonderful.

does thunderbird let you export your emails and contacts and preferences like outlook? its inability to do so was the reason i stopped using it to merge a few email accounts i used to use to have before i went 100% gmail as well.

i *thought* so, but now i'm not so sure. i just can't remember. i'd look at mozilla.org and see what they have to say. maybe recent updates have more features?

i prefer gmail over all though. web-based e-mail just makes more sense for me.

synapsecollapse: Yes you can export your contacts and mail, can outlook read that? Possibly there is an olderformat whcih everyone seems to understand, can't remember think its pegasus.

Hello, resident computer guy here Aubbs! Outlook and Outlook express, no big problem at all, I can even tell you how to do it by hand, however I suspect you'd like to use a program like OEBackup but... the guy took it offline. Don't worry backing up your files and moving is like soooo simple mmk? I'll send you a PDF on it and when you do it contact me for any questions. Just as long as you don't delete your old files then you'll be fine.

Second thing, depending on how many Optical drives you may be able to fit that other drive in your system, in normal systems you are allowed 4 IDE devices, however yeah you chould be an external inclosure and have it that way.

Hey howcome teenaged girls get privacy and teenaged guys don't?

Windows XP right?

Just run the File and Settings Transfer Wizard under Accessories and it should move all your Outlook stuff into a file you can import on the new computer.

Thunderbird makes it a lot harder to move the data, but it can be done. But you can't post to LJ from Thunderbird.

Why can't you post to LJ from Thunderbird? It reads HTML too? Also, I don't trust wizzards and the method works for all versions of windows. If your new profile on the new system is the same name as the old profile in the old sysem it isn't that hard either.

Well, it can render the page just fine but if you go to reply to the message you'll get an error from LJ. I'm about to find out if they've fixed that or give the specific error, as I'm typing this in thunderbird 2.0 alpha 1.

The error is: Comment not posted: POST required, or missing parameter.

It's easy to copy the files over if you're familiar with poking around in your user profile, but I've found it a lot easier to just tell family/coworkers to just use the file & settings wizard. I use it periodically to create a backup of my user profile and most of my software settings in case something happens with my laptop.

If I remember where my old email files are, I'll probably just do that - I remember there being some sort of a wizard. I'm two computers from where they were now, and the harddrives have been moved around a lot. YAY FOR SEARCHING!

Thanks muchly! I now have to remember where they all are, as I'm two computers later and the harddrives have been moved around a lot!
