...but my computer at home is.

However, like the good monster she is, she will be rebuilt.

On Monday the keyboard perished.

On Tuesday I bought a new keyboard, plugged it in, and got BEEP BEEP BEEP and nothing but a line from the motherboard telling me that I have a processor installed.... (and then silence)

I think the motherboard finally fried, or the RAM, or both. (it was 5 years old after all, I'm suprised it lasted this long. Next on the list is a new monitor - I'm sure my monitor isn't long for this world)

Anyway, I am rebuilding the system with a Microstar motherboard, an AMD Sempron 2800+ processor, 512M of RAM (to start with), a new power supply and a new video card.

My bank account said "ouch! why did you have to bite me so hard?"

Rich is coming to visit this weekend, we'll probably be hunkered down in my hobbit haus all weekend because its supposed to rain. We're trying to save money - he's moving up here and we're hoping to get an apt. together in the next handful of months. (certainly before I have to leave my apt. next spring when my landlady puts the house on the market)

Everything is otherwise okay, I'm okay, hope you're all okay too.
