Backup Computer

My notebook is on its way to Houston to have the screen fixed under warranty. So I'm using the backup computer again. It's slow. Seriously, it takes about forty-five seconds for Firefox or Outlook Express to start after I click on the icons. It's aggravating to click and see nothing happen. And then you wait and nothing happens. And then you wait some more and still nothing happens. So you think maybe you clicked wrong, or the computer missed the command somehow. So you click again. And nothing happens. And then the program's splash screen appears. And then it appears again, because you've opened it twice. I'm learning some patience with more use, but it would be nice if my programs would open at some point during the Bush Adminstration.
