So, I'm getting new hardware. Shiny shiny hardware!
A list, in no particular order:
- A 19inch LCD monitor - That's going to be fun to look at. I get that tingly feeling when I feel like I may just have to move my head that bit more to see everything on the screen. 3d games should be fun!
- A 250MB SATA-300 disk, and controller and cables - this I'm really looking forward to. Finally the downloads from broadband can stay on my drive that bit longer!
- A dual-layer DVD burner with LabelFlash support - To the unitiated, it's a DVD burner. Not only that, but it can burn up to 8GB on the appropriate disc. Moreover, if I get the right kind of disc, I can have it write the labels on it. No more scrawling with markers for me!
Oh, as an aside, I got word that the people on a 3meg connection on ntl (I think that's still me), are going to be upped to an 8meg connection! I.e. More cause to dance! It looks like we're finally catching up on what ferrousoxide reckons are speeds that one would consider decent in the US! I think I'd be within my rights to say a tentative: "w00t"!
As I said to Kiara by text, the Hardware Dance is a bit like my Mating Dance, except it's fancier and more technical.
Dammit, why doesn't LJ have an "Orgasmic" mood? (I'll just go with Crazy and put orgasmic in the text box - I think that works)
