March - part 2

Part 2 of the Pentax pictures

March 19th - Daffodils and Hyacinths

March 24th - I got in a 50mm fixed lens for my Pentax. I tried it out on Kathie Oliva's latest custom mask then on Peter.

March 26th - project time! Working on the future room for the girls. First step - painting it. The colors they chose were a light green for the walls and a darker green for the ceiling. I used a Black & Decker Deluxe sprayer. I would recommend instead getting an airless sprayer. It gave good coverage when it worked, but occasionally just splurged a glob onto the walls. And sprayers really mist the room up and use a lot more paint. But the finish is really nice.

April 1st - I got my replacement motherboard and SAME PROBLEM! So I spent hours on Google (called Topeka on April Fools Day!). It took a lot of work, but I finally got the new system rocking and rolling. Now I'm considering backing up the hard drive and settings and reformatting and starting with a fresh hard drive/setup. Changing the hardware wiped out my registration for Windows and Microsoft Office, so instead of registering Vista, I'm thinking of just starting over with Windows 7. But that's a lot of work and I work all Easter weekend :(
