Consumerism.

So in the past week I've got myself a few new shinies.

The big one? A new computer. Quad core (Q9450), 4 gigs of ram (it even has cooling pipes on it. hey, it was only 5 dollars more!), and a 8800 gts graphics card. Neat mobo, neat case, and a cooling fan the size of god. I got windows vista 64bits - I figured I might as well test out the devil (and once we learned to install directx drivers, I must say some of the aero affects are pretty snazy).

Things got more leds on it than I knew about when I got it - hell, even the southbridge on the mobo has a logo that lights up on it. The side of the video card even lights up...the computer is its very own nightlight. This was not intentional, but it is amusing.

I did not buy a new monitor, but I want to...maybe I'll find a good deal on a 24" widescreen monitor in the near future (Hrm, newegg has the 22" WS monitor I currently have on sale for 220, which is ~40 less than what I paid for it)? I dunno...I also need to buy a new apc/power supply strip thingmajig. And I want to buy a HD camcorder. And a HD TV.

I'm mostly happy that I put it together in one pass and that it posted first time I powered it up. =) Also that currently the cpu runs at a 'toasty' 95 degrees under what I consider 'full' load. *snickers* I obviously need to abuse my system more.

The other shiny? A new digicam! Let us pray it won't get stolen, and that it can take nice pictures well into its old life with me. :P

Also, pondering a trip to Cedar Point...likely won't happen, but I'd like to do -something- fun this summer away from here, celebrate the warm weather and the summer. I suppose I did get firefest..maybe I shouildn't be greedy (whatever did happen to Renfest? I need to buy me a lot of ... stuff. Stuff that contains metal and leather and pretty.)

And oh god another server blew up. /cry

P.S. Like my new icon? :) Sinfest is taking over...

P.S.S. I also got a new haircut. :P
