Kevin and Lisa

Lisa's Turn to be Sick

Lisa awoke this morning with a slight fever, which is troubling. The thermometer read 37.5 C. 37 is "normal," but Lisa says her personal normal is a little cooler -- 36.5 C. I read her the Riot Act about taking it nice and easy today, staying in bed, resting, drinking lots of fluids, etc. It's not easy because whenever she lies down, the noise in her ear gets worse, which makes sleeping a trial in the best of times, which this is not.

Meanwhile, this morning I've been watching Windows XP slowly install itself in the Toughbook. I do hope it does not prove as difficult to activate this license as the last time we did so on a non-Internet-connected computer.

And speaking of software, my experience with the trial copy of the newer version of DriveClone was such that I've bought the version 6 upgrade multi-user license and it's downloading as I type this.

In a little while, I will go back to the trailer to check in on how Lisa is doing.
