Between computers.. waiting for an update.

I've a backlog of photos to add to my blog - but there's no point attempting to add them as my current computers are - well, out of date.

It simmers in the background now as it does "no one knows what" in the background as I type.

Hoping to acquire a new machine in a week or so and fingers crossed it will just work obediently - for a while anyway.
