All Steamed Up

Lisa and I spent the day at the Oregon Steam-Up in Brooks (north of Salem), but while we took photos, we haven't downloaded any of them, on account of spending much of the evening after we got back to Mehama trying to troubleshoot problems with Lisa's gaming computer. We got a bit sidetracked when, while trying to salvage video files off the machine onto CD-R, we thought a particular problem was the computer when it really seems to have been a faulty CD-R.

It's sufficiently late now that I don't have time to go into details, as I'm hastily using the internet access at my father-in-law's house and Lisa wants us to go get dinner. And to be honest, after spending the last 3-4 hours fussing with balky computers, I'm not sure I want to spend much more time in front of one.
