New computer AND internet access, yay!!

So, yup, I broke down and gots me a new computer. I could hardly resist, as I don't give a hooey as to whether or not I get Windows Vista for a LONG time, and all the non Vista computers at work went on clearance PLUS an additional hundred and fifty off.

- 1 gig RAM
- 200 gig hard drive
- lightscribe/dual layer dvd burner

I would also tell you the processor and the graphics card, but I can't think of them right now - just woke up from a nap, you see, where I dreamed I kept popping into nothinganything and sonatamoonlite's to wash my face, which was totally covered in sticky caramel, but I kept getting sidetracked by a playing Paul. Eventually, they had to leave and Heather looked annoyed that I wouldn't use my own bathroom to clean my messy face.

But, anywell, I got the tower/keyboard/mouse for $369. Yes, that's right. Three hundred seventy bucks. This blows my old computer out of the water. I went to hook up my old 120 gig internal harddrive when I took it out of the box, but the inside looks a lot more daunting than I anticipated, so I refrained. Maybe I can give dispossessed ten bucks to do it? huhhuhhuh?!?

I also managed to mostly rehook the internet up the way it had been before my brother had attempted to rearrange everything (Hercules apparently put twisted the cable wire onto the splitter upstairs, so I managed all but that) so I seem to be back. The internet is still slow as fucking SIN (which is quite slow, I'll have you know.) so I'm wondering if a call to Comcast is into the works. Our internet has been uber slow (well, for the boys upstairs, who actually HAD internet), and especially with my computer being brand spankin new and hardwired instead of wireless, there is zero reason why it should take eight years to load a page. This is also the second stop since I went online (the first was to download firefox) so I haven't had a chance to infect it with anything yet ;)

What all did I miss? Methinks I shall screen the comments so that you can all fill me in on all the gory details of what occured in your lives over the last week.

I misseded you.
