Cold, partly cloudy, and windy. It was 28 degrees this morning. High today in the mid 40’s with wind chills in the low 30’s.

The inspector with the earthquake office came by yesterday afternoon to look at the house and assess the damages they will pay for. In addition to what George already saw and quoted me a price on the inspector also suggested repairing the cracks in the chimney wall that runs up through the garage.

I am staying home today to wait on George to come by and give me a quote on that job so I can drop it off at the earthquake office. Just after the inspector left yesterday we had another 2.1 jolt. Getting tired of those.

    Now that you have a backup computer, be sure to turn it on at least once a week and let it run for a few hours. It needs to automatically look for and download updates. Doesn’t matter if it runs Linux or Windows (I can’t remember which you run.) Depending on settings, it will either install updates automatically or wait for you to request that. This will keep it from getting out of date.

    Also, if you run Thunderbird (ISTR that was Bob’s choice,) it will download email and update its database. My experience is that this can take maybe an hour if only done once a week, depending on your email volume.

    Anyway, run it until everything settles down. Use the system monitor or Windows Task Manager to watch activity. Or, as I mentioned, just let it run for a few hours. Notebook computers don’t use much energy.

    You probably already know all this, but it never hurts to repeat basics, and your backup system will always be ready with minimum delays. Good luck.

    Thank you. I will do that. Tim said both laptops were set up identically with Linux.
