Carpet is in, Computers are Out.

The carpet is almost done at the library.  Except for a small part of the children's seating section, (they ran out of carpet and have to order more then come back to install it), it is all installed, and looks great.  It's a little darker than I imagined it would be, but it looks very nice, and we got rid of the strip behind the librarian's desk that has been a thorn in my side for the past two years.  lol.

Unfortunately, they unhooked all the computers and moved them around, which was understandable. They needed to be able to move the furniture around so they could lay the carpet.  But now, I'm struggling to get the computers hooked back up the way they were before, and we have no internet.  None. Zilch, Nada, Zero.  I did get all the computers to at least power on, except for one that I need to rig an extension cord to, but after working on it for hours today, I finally called the Board President, and told her I needed help getting the internet back on.

I'm sure it's just a simple matter of hooking the cords up correctly, resetting the router, and making sure the settings are correct.  But I have never been good at any of that, and my blood pressure rises every time I have to hook a computer up for internet.   Then my brain refuses to function, and I'd just as well give up.

Hopefully, we can get someone up from Great Bend to get it all figured out very soon.  Tomorrow I will reopen the library, but without the computer internet.  I will have to check out books and movies on paper, scan the bar codes into the computer and print them out offline.  Then enter them into the Pathfinder program once we are back up and running online.   A pain in the royal patoot, but it is what it is.

I also have to get all those nonfiction books that are piled high on the children's craft tables back on their proper shelves.  Some of them will be weeded out and put on the Weedy Shelf for a while.  If they don't disappear from there, they will be offered on eBay.

I used to have a book store on eBay and made some pretty good money doing it.  I'm thinking about opening an eBay store again soon.

On a side note, today was combination of Valentine's Day and Ash Wednesday.  Dennis, Becky, Karsyn, Whitley, and little Maliyah brought me chocolates and flowers.  I'll take a picture of the flowers tomorrow to post.  It was a great way to finish a frustrating day at work.  Then Dennis and I went to Ash Wednesday services at church.  Our priest was fighting a bug and was pretty weak and pale.  I hope it isn't the influenza virus going around.  He has a heart condition and needs to stay in good condition.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
