"Hey, April 1st... 32 degrees..."

I woke up with the cat breathing in my face. What a way to greet April 1st. I got up and walked up to the store to pick up some yummies for when I watch anime. But I left my gloves at home. I thought being April 1st, I would be ok. I mean, yesterday it was 59 degrees. yeahs. not to be. It was a chilly 32 degrees. I froze my fingers and the palms were blistery red. The nice girl at the store made me take her gloves and all I need to do is bring them back. How sweet.
What a nice gesture. It helped to keep me warm on the long, cold walk home.

Well, I can't put it off any longer. This nice, home brew PC has reached its design life. I have four older PC's, but not too sure if they can handle today's applications. The brand new motherboard I bought, was poorly designed. The company knows it, but side steps admitting it by trying to have me jump through hoops and do things that absolutely do nothing to solve the problem. The problem, this mobo will only work with one companies memory. no other companies will work. It took me 5 months to get that out of them. But I already bought 1 gig's worth of ram and it won't work with anything else. yeahs. Now, they provided me with a Return merchandise authorization, but, get this, they also told me 1. they do not stock that board any longer and 2. they also do not have any refurbished boards. they can't fix it either. it's surfaced mounted components. oh well. So, I have to make a choice before the other one quits.

Next up, spring cleaning.
