    my old man and i are installing a kitchen for a computer tech, and dad said to the guy 'look, instead of paying us, just give my son a new computer'. that took me by suprise :D Anyway he agreed, so on December 7th i will have my own computer, my own hard drive, my own internet connection, my own music, my own porn, my own everything.
    I will mostly use it to record people, so i asked my music teacher what i need, and he gave me this list:

    Intel PIV 2.6+
    Asus Mother board
    7200RPM HardDrive 120+
    512 Meg ram DDR
    Dedicated Video Card
    Dedicated Sound Card
    and Windows XP

    The computer tech is more than happy to give me this stuff, along with a monitor, keyboard, mouse and all the other brew-ha-ha. I just felt like sharing my joy. Today has been a good day :)

    That's awesome kirby! It's awesome having your own computer. I've been loving the privacy that I've had since I got my own laptop.

    yeh having your own pc is great, you dont have to watch what your doing and dont need to worry about it getting broken by other people in the house, make sure you password it etc if you want to be properly safe.

  7. for some people, the computer IS life ;)

    That's me, baby! The power supply of my PC blew few hours ago, but I didn't have time to check it out until around 7 PM. When I noticed it was dead, I was thinking "Oh no! All the PC stores have already closed! Where can I get a new one at this hour, I'm gonna have to wait 'til tomorrow morning!" :eek:

    This story has a happy ending though: I had a spare one in my drawer, which now is just sitting on the floor plugged in, and here we are :bassist:
