Kevin and Lisa

Clearing the Decks

This afternoon and evening, Lisa has had me dealing with a lot of miscellaneous computer-based chores while she has me here. There's been more drive cloning, for instance. (She prefers that I do them because all of her computers have USB 1.x ports, so even if she has the drive-cloning software and external drive connectors, it could take days to clone a 320 GB drive.) Also, I'm scanning for her a bunch of the photos from the 2005 trip. She took these on disposable cameras and we had them developed at a shop near the Russell Square tube station. As I recall, it wasn't until well after the trip that I realized that we'd been going and coming through the area where one of the 11/7 bombings had happened only a few weeks earlier.
