My cat gave me a nice present: he jumped onto my lap so i couldn't watch TV: i had no excuse except to pet him. I did. He meowed his approveble.
My computer's present wasn't so nice. When i turned it on, i was greeted by a rumbling noise. Not a good sign! I've went through about 8 hard drives since i started building them 15 years ago, and i know that warning sign. So, my late Birthday present and early Christmas present is to start hunting around for computer motherboards and parts. I even called Leo LaPort, The Tech Guy. He thought GIgabyte had some special deals. Never leave any rock unturned!.
Ok, back to hunting and waiting for the UPS truck to deliver my new WD harddrive. sigh. I had other plans to spent money on this season. But it had other ideas for me. yuck.
SO, God Bless all of you. WIshing a snow packed holiday for all.
