New computer! YAYYYYY

I've got my new computer up and running, along with most of my programs installed. YAYYYYY!

I decided, after the lappy crash and using the desktop for a couple of months, that I really like the extra desk space. The lappy takes up about half of it. /refuses to acknowledge that she could possibly rig something so the laptop is underneath and out of the way/ And I discovered that the desktop ran faster, even though it had half the resources, which I don't understand but really liked. But then the video card started going out and to replace it would be over $100, and I only had a 40 gig HDD, so I really needed to upgrade that, and I definitely needed more RAM . . . So I found a smokin deal and got it. :D I probably shouldn't have, since I'm not working atm, but isn't that precisely when you need a good computer? Isn't it? *g* Besides, I've been dodging recruiters for several weeks, so I'll be able to go back to work when I feel like it. /is so spoiled/ And my birthday just passed, so I deserved a treat. To top it all off, it cost less than than amount I had set aside to fix the self-healing jeep. /can justify anything/ *g*

So despite the hassle of finding all my registration codes, I'm a happy camper. :)

Current Mood: sillysilly

Well done you ::beams::

And your justification looks even better in print than when you just say it LOL

*g* It does, doesn't it? It doesn't come across nearly as whiny. :) Now, if I could just get a better net connection . . . :(

YAY that's great hon. I'm still freaked out by the self healing jeep though. You got ANY ideas how it got fixed?

I think it's because we actually had a sunny, warm day, and the bumper heated up a bit and popped back out. Although, I kinda like the idea of bumper faeries. *g*


Go you! Hope it screams for ya.


Oh yeah, this thing is lightening fast! And I can put my SD cards right in the front so putting movies and fic on HAL will be a breeze, the DVD player works well with my region free program, and best of all, there are 3 USB hubs in front, so I won't have to struggle to hook up extra things, like my flashdrive. *beams*


*cough* electronics bracket *cough*

S'all I'm sayin.


Electronics bracket? What's that? Is it something I didn't know about but desperately need? *fishes in purse for debit card* Where can I find it? What does it do?


No, seriously, what is it? *g*


Remember I was saying how you could mount all the electronics on a long, pull down metal rack. Space saving, yadda yadda? Ring a bell? This convo happened the night of the poison shrimp. I remember you mentioning something about difficulty with the wiring.....? Anyway - that's what I'm saying - electronics bracket.


I'm happy for you!

This smokin' deal? Was it online? If so, can you share the link? I'm about half looking myself. I want a new one but I haven't reached the justification level I need yet.


Hey MsB!

My advice - let Feather 1) find your deal; 2) configure your system; and 3) do your justification for you. She can do all three better than anybody else in the universe. Trust. Me. On. This.


Well, we all need to go with our strengths. . . *g*

Thanks for the tips!

Yep, on Tigerdirect.com. I got a refurb and it's very very nice! :) I like the AMD Athlon 64 processors. They're cheaper and seem to work even better than a Pentium does. In fact, my old desktop was a 1.2 Ghz Athlon, and it ran circles around my Pentium 4 2.4.

Since your business is online of course you need a good system! It's your living! And yeah, maybe the DVD burner is extra, because a CD burner would do, but if you don't treat yourself every now and then you start to wonder why you work in the first place. *nods* /g/

You are good at the justification!

Thanks for the link. If I get serious about buying, I might be asking for your advice.
