Day 881: Zayde’s new PC

Zayde decided he needed a new PC.  We ordered it through Office Depot for pick up, but when we picked it up it turned out to be a demo unit, so the first step was to restore to factory fresh:


While we waited for this to complete, the kids did homeschool and Trish did some crocheting:


B finished coloring her page:


I finished up with the new computer around 9pm.  We would have stayed at my parents’ house tonight, but the permit expired at 3AM, so we topped off our water, reluctantly said our goodbyes, and hit the road.  The plan was to overnight on BLM land, but the drizzle we encountered as we pulled away turned into hard rain as we continued east.  Concerned about getting stuck in the mud, we decided to shorten tonight’s drive and overnight at the Railroad Pass Casino.  See the trip map for today’s drive and our current location.

  1. Ah, the joy of installing Windows 10! I’m shocked they didn’t wipe the demo model, couldn’t they get in huge trouble if there was personal info on there?

    • Actually, it was Windows 8.1, and all I did was restore from the restore partition to get the machine back to factory fresh Windows 8.1. I think the unit was the one out on the shelf for people to play with, so I don’t think there should be any kind of personal information on it. I did the restore in case passers by installed or uninstalled something, or messed with the configuration in some way.
