So This Is the Year 2000, Huh? Nice.July 21, 2009
For once, no one can accuse me of being indecisive. After my computer crashed last week, I sorted through all of the options, did all of my research, and last night, just shy of a week later, bought a brand new Dell. Of course, I can’t take all the credit for my decisiveness: I found a really great deal. So now I have a computer, printer, and, unfortunately, a much skinnier wallet than yesterday. But with 4 GB of memory and a 320 GB hard drive, my new computer doubles the power of my old one, so it’s all worth it.
Now it’s time for a confession: I don’t have high-speed internet at home. We live out in the sticks, and high-speed’s hard to come by. I guess that, as far as confessions go, it’s not too bad, and I may have even mentioned it here before on my blog. But it makes me feel so 1990s. So with my new, fast computer and the super-fast internet I’m looking forward to once I move to Florida, I have a feeling that I’m going to be wasting a lot more time on the good ol’ inter-web. And no more bumming wi-fi at the library every time I need to work on an important project or download a necessary program! (Okay, okay. Or everytime I want to watch a video of a drunk squirrel on a treadmill.)
