I’m in a really great mood, and so I thought I’d completely rip off Nathan’s latest dose of blogging to bring you an account of my fantastic spending spree at PC World. (No don’t worry, didn’t buy a computer there. And I wasn’t paying either!)
For PC1, bought circa 1999, we got another XP upgrade, 256MB of extra RAM, a Belkin wireless network card and a table to keep it all on. All for Natasha’s room, a proper little upgrade for the oldest networked PC.
Then, after being brought down to earth for a while to assemble the bloody table (we did it the wrong way round – twice) it was time to order PC4 from trust ol’ Dell. 3.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive and a lovely 19″ flat screen to sit on my dad’s desk. And finally, my wish to standardise a home network on XP SP2 will be complete. No more blue screen, no more crashing and burning Windows 9x, just pure XP bliss. And not a Mac in sight Pingu – we like our computers to come with monitors included. :-p
My good mood even extended to hunting down a bunch of obscure music for Tash. Including Steps. Proof that technology does not bring you taste.
