Little planet Friday

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 13 April 2012 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

Westoe Bridges, South Shields, the flat blue building on the left is the car wash where I made a recent series of black and white pictures.


Well, the new PC is up and running very smoothly and the "Windows" part of the task is now all complete with all of my regular software successfully installed. Now I just need to install the Linux Mint operating system on a different partition, which I will do on Sunday.

It's good to be back!
