Reporter's Notebook

The art and science of the interview

Files, Programs AND Hardware

leave a comment »

And it’s not just programs and files.  It’s also hardware.  The old PC could print using a parallel port to an excellent workhorse of a printer, an HP4.  But, the new PC needed a card and drivers to run the HP4.  Otherwise, I have to get some plastic coated, printer fascimile rip off where you pay more for ink than for the printer.  No thanks.  My HP4 is a block of metal and industrial grade polymer that will print far, far into the future as long as it has connections and drivers.  So, I have to install them.  Also, to run other telephone software, as well as have a dial up back up, I need to move the modem from the old PC to the new one.  Again, need software and drivers.  So, although sure and steady, the switch over is a slow one.
