They've been exaggerated, to say the least.
New laptop, which means proper typing, which means ....
No one and nothing is safe from my rants. We all know that. I'm working, I got my payout.
Over 6 thousand dollars and wiped out in 24 hours. Goddamn bills. I, at least, bought a cheap laptop. And by cheap, I mean ACER. A brand I have only slightly more respect for than COMPAQ- I will never again own one of those.
So, What happened to my ASUS?
Graphics card shit itself. Over heats and crashes the machine.
To help minimize this, I bought an i-5 which I am given to understand runs somewhat cooler than the the old core duo.
The decision to buy this was a budget one. An i5 with 4 gigs ram and 1 gig dedicated graphics was the minimum I was aiming for, and I acheived it for less than $700. So I guess that makes me a sucker. Next thing you know, I'll buy a great wall ute.
Regardless, Its good to be connected.
So, what do I owe you?
The last chapter in A Driving History. I will be discussing my Prelude soon.
I'll even tell you bout my new job. I see the sun these days, thats a big change.
I also get to drive the Gillies- 20km of twisty mountain road that is as fun to drive as it is paradoxically annoying. It is almost too long. But I will dedicate a full post to that drive.
And I still haven't got the damn haircut.
