stupid computers. @ 02:16 am

I succumbed to the urge I've been having for the last couple of months and dropped $400 at fry's for a spanky new athlon xp 1700 with extra froozenblatzers and frimpytrons. I got home at 9:30, and five hours later... I think the thing is finally close to working properly. Gah!

I won't go into the details, but it involved moving around little blue bits of plastic from one place to another in non-obvious ways, rearranging how things fit, and rebooting at least thirty times. I can't believe that it STILL takes five hours to install a windoze machine from scratch - and I generally know what the hell I'm doing!

Of course, when I booted up the machine with NetBSD just to make sure the box worked at all, it mostly worked on the first try... feh.
