29.04.2000 – Saturday 29 April
- • Mariette woke me up at a quarter to six. I bought two chocolate bars (Aero and Milky bar) at the Ampol, and a bottle of soft drink. I then walked to Silas’ and got a lift out to Rossville with him and Elise. I arrived here at about 7:30 AM. I came in copied my floppy disks onto the computer, and then Sarah and I went down to the markets. I stayed at the markets until after midday. I installed a NaturalWord update for Dragon NaturallySpeaking, which allowed Dragon NaturallySpeaking and Microsoft Word 2000 to run at the same time, but the Dragon NaturallySpeaking button at the top of word still did not work. I deleted all instances of normal.dot (Microsoft Word normal document templates) and then ran Microsoft Word. Amazing, it worked! I didn’t really think that it would work, and I was quite surprised when it did.
Sarah and I took Malarchy for a walk around the power poles. I walked out to home rule (just the mailbox, I didn’t see Joneses). Joneses were maybe going to stay over, but they were not allowed. It is quite cold. It didn’t rain today either.
