IFO has no information or advice for you on the subject of moving an office. She is wiped out from having emptied out an old desk, unplugged countless electronic devices, then and replugged and put them all back together in her new office. Whew!
From left to right on her desk – Smart label printer, computer tower, speaker, monitor, separate hard drive for backups, speaker, telephone and office printer. Before we collapse in exhaustion, we’ll report on our indexes in the next post.
It took two hours to unplug and put in car, and a whole day to put it all back together. Part of the time was spent in getting Internet access – which is much trickier in this semi-wilderness area. Possible, but tricky. No slick Fiber-to-the-Home high speed connection. OTOH, this IS one-Meg connection. We remember when that was amazing, screaming fast.
We have tested almost all components – the hardest ones first. So far, so good. But the Internet Service Provider was a bit worried about the line-of-sight link to his nearest tower. He was afraid that a nearby tree would grow higher and wider and cut the link. We shall see. We are considering asking the neighbor with the offending tree whether he would be willing to trim it down a bit.
