Mainly because the moment I made an actual budget and realized I had spare cash, my previously-faithful PC gave up the ghost for the second and possibly final time.
Really, considering I'd dropped it on a tile floor four times, it was about time. When I tried that with my mac, the hard drive exploded immediately.
So, the laptop is dead - RIP Killer Tomato (and most of my files) - long live the laptop!
My new one's a Gateway as well, because they're clearly incredibly tough. And his name is Boswell.
I've done all the important laptop-breaking-in things this evening:
- Erased the unwanted junk that came standard
- Set a new desktop background to replace the delicious "charity car wash" one I used to have. This one's tasteful instead, *sigh*
- Set bookmark tabs for Netflix, Google Reader, my bank, Wish Upon a Hero, Twitter, Facebook, and Blogger
- Watched an episode of Lie to Me. I'm trying to catch up before Hulu takes anything down. I'm a bit iffy on some of the plots this season, but will probably never get tired of watching Tim Roth strut around and piss people off.
