Been a little while

It seems that I have been too busy with life to drop a post or two. Well, I will update on a few things that I have done in the time of this lack of posting. One thing that I have done is get a smaller computer case instead of the server case I was using for years. It is a mini-tower with 3x 5 1/4″ drive bays, 1x visible 3 1/2″ bay and 5 3 1/2″ bays for hard drives and the lot. The thing actually holds my three internal hard drives, one DVD/CD burner and a CD burner without too much problems. Another thing is that it has a clear plastic cutout on the side of it and so I have a Green LED exhaust fan to light it up. Yes, I know I am a bit late to the party on this one but I found it fun. I did not want red or blue because those LED colors hurt my eyes. Green is a nice calm color for the future of my vision. I almost have my dedicated Multimedia PC ready to go so when I rip music/movies/etc., capture video and otherwise edit graphics I will have a dedicated workstation for such a feat. The thing has a bit more power than my current system. My processor is an Athlon XP 2100+ and the one in the aforementioned system is an Athlon XP 2500+ so it is a bit faster. The RAM is the same at 512Megs but it is faster than what is in my main system. The thing I need to get soon for my main system is a really good video card because mine is and has been showing it’s age for a while. What sucks is that since I am almost always broke I doubt I will be able to afford one for a long time to come. I know you are thinking, “hey, where the hell did he get all that hardware if he is broke?”, and I have an answer for you. I tend to accept any computer hardware someone is willing to give me. I am not too proud when it comes to that. 🙂 Anyway, I am going to get out of here for a short and will attempt to most more often for the 2 or 3 people that sometimes visit a month. 😛
