|I finally broke down and got myself a new computer. The main reason was that my old computer was struggling to run the stuff I needed it to run. Since I'm working with VMs more and more, I needed a computer that could run VMs seamlessly.
Hence this computer: 4 GB of RAM, 350 GB hard drive, dual 2.6 GHz processors. Earlier I was installing a Linux distro, playing Freecell, watching a DVD and downloading files -- all at the same time and all on the same computer.
Now there are a number of things I don't like about Windows 7 (Freecell for example has been changed dramatically; much to my annoyance). I can compensate for this using VMs.
Tomorrow I'll be installing more VMs and perhaps a Windows VM. I do have a copy of 98se and WinXP around -- I saw Windows 7's beta versions, figured I wouldn't like it and planned ahead.
In addition to buying the computer, we stopped and visited the buffet. Things were going well until my teeth collided wrong, making a loud CRUNCH that disturbed people. Nothing seems broken, but it was a scare.
Lastly, buying computers, like life, is a game of Chance
