Finally! After 7 years, I have a new computer. The timing was a bit difficult with the holiday coming up. It's been a bit of a distraction given how much I have had to also prepare for work and the holidays.
But first off, to answer one of the The Engineer's son's questions: Yes, J. my computer case has lights. It's glowy!
Going from a Dell, Pentium III 733MHz, 512 RAM, nVidia 32MB, Windows 98SE, and generic Dell stuff.
Going to a Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz w/4MB L2 Cache 1333MHz FSB, 2 GB DDR2 RAM, nVidia 8800GT 512MB, Gigabyte motherboard, Altec 900 PC case, and other stuff.
Thanks to a friend
Now that I have just about all my holiday work prep ready now maybe I can get in a bit of recreation before the Marathon from 4th Sunday of Advent through Epiphany.
I may try some open source stuff like Open Office instead of Microsoft Office and Gimp instead of Photoshop.
