It appears that my motherboard as given up the ghost after less than 2 years. Consumer electronics sure aren’t built to last anymore. I was up last night simply watching an episode of Firefly on my computer when it rebooted itself, appearingly never to run properly again… Great.

The truly sad thing is this is far from the time to be purchasing a new motherboard. With 939 pin Athlons and PCI-Express on the horizon, one would be crazy to buy now… Crazy… or desperate, as I’ll soon be. Now I have to figure out if I should attempt to upgrade, or buy the cheapest motherboard on the market to use until the next gen stuff is around… Oi what a way to have to spend my first paycheck!

On the brighter side, I was able to trade my abhorrently slow work computer for a 350mhz junkpile (aside from a ‘much’ faster processor, it has 384 megs of ram to my old computer’s 48!), so at least my only contact with computers for awhile won’t be with the dinosaur I had before. Thank goodness for small favors.

Finally, thanks to Muk Yan, I’ve got an Orkut account. So far he’s the only guy I know there, so if you have an account, or perhaps want an invitation to get one (for those who don’t know this is required for membership, even though its free), let me know.

Hi! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I needed to
ask. Does running a well-established blog such as yours take a lot
of work? I am completely new to operating a
blog but I do write in my journal every day. I’d like to
start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or
tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

Useful information. Fortunate me I discovered your site
accidentally, and I’m stunned why this coincidence didn’t came
about earlier! I bookmarked it.
