New Year Resolution

I've made a resolution that I think I might actually be able to keep.  That would be a first.  I figure if I'm going to keep LJ active, I should start posting.  I'm going to try ...

We are now 2 days into 2016 and it's cold here.  Really cold.  And we haven't seen the sun yet this year.  That's unusual for El Paso ... they don't call us the Sun City for nothing.  We average 297 sunny days.  This is why I live here.  Ok, not the only reason, but it's real high on my list of reasons.

My only leftover from 2015 is a computer problem that I can't seem to fix.  I have 4 computers at home, 2 desktops and 2 laptops.  I have upgraded all of them to windows 10.  The desktops went from win 7 pro to win 10 pro and the 2 laptops went from win 8.1 home to 10 home.  I like to network my computers, not because I really need to, but  because I can.  And learning to do new things with my computers is fun.  The problem is that the 2 laptops and one of the desktops all show up on the network, but the other desktop doesn't.  I've verified that all the settings are the same all around, but the one desktop just refuses to show up.  I've googled, and googled, and googled.  I've been out to several windows forums and I even broke down and talked to Microsoft.  How is it possible that I can set up 3 computers to network successfully, but I keep screwing up the 4th one?  It's positively mind boggling.  It's given me more than one headache.  But, I refuse to give up.  I don't care what it takes, I will fix this.

I'm done for tonight, I think.  I hope to come out here and talk a couple times a week, at least.
