Update on computer issue. @ 10:48 am

It's been just over a month since I traded in the Ralink wireless card for a Linksys USB dongle. 

No freezes yet!

I want to give it a full three months before I say the problem is licked for good, but things are looking up so far!

Congrats! I think the USB dongle should be faster than the wireless, unless you were running one of these AC wireless or something like that. But since everything bottlenecks at the point your cable modem/whatever connects to your ISP, doesn't matter much except for internal transfers.

We had to go to El Paso last week to replace my wife's laptop's HD. Fortunately Mac gives you a pretty good 'head's up' when something like that fails, and you couldn't ask for an easier full system restore if you've maintained good backups.

Hooray for the test going well so far.
