[Tweeters] AviSys off-topic, and dipping on SHAS

Dear Tweeters,
My computer has succumbed to some sort of malady, related to Microsoft Update. Now I have a brand-new computer, but I can't figure out how to get AviSys installed on it. Of course, the new machine has no CD drive, so I can't use the CD that came with AviSys. I do believe that I have saved the contents of that CD on the cloud, though. Any hints or tips would be welcomed. Harrumph.
Today, the fifteenth of October, Mike Nelson and I, as well as Marcus Roening and Heather Ballash, and Darchelle W., all tried in vain for the Sharp-tailed Sandpiper at Fir Island Farm Reserve, formerly known as Prince (I mean, Hayton Reserve). There were quite a few interesting birds in view, including a cooperative Lapland Longspur, and the redoubtable Black-necked Stilt. 
We saw several interesting Calidrids, including a greyish one that I thought was probably a Red Knot, and a couple of brownish ones. I think we probably did see the Sharp-tailed Sandpiper, but will leave that for any intrepid weekend birders who venture to Fir Island tomorrow, which will also be more or less the first day of waterfowl hunting season. The weather was beastly today. Viva la ninya.
Yours truly,
Gary Bletsch
