Just saying hello to everyone
Well, here I am again, making yet another return, after yet another departure, though this time is different, seeing as how I'm here to stay this time around
My old system, the PI, running at 133Mhz, was fried about 2 months ago by a power surge, which was the result of a transformer blowing up outside of my house, on one of the many telephone poles. It ate up everything vital, and I was online at the time, which didn't help much at all, so basically everything was ruined.
I threw away everything I had, whether it was good or not, and refused to ever own anything that old and slow ever again, and it worked
I've got a new system, well, new to me anyway, running at 533Mhz, with 128 megs of DDR Ram... an ATI Radeon 9200 AGP video card, which has 128 megs of it's own DDR Ram, a cd burner, standard cdrom drive, 20gig 7200 RPM hardrive, and connections for everthing under the sun. I'm finally, halfway modern now. As you can imagine, this machine seems like a brand new P4 3.2 system to me! lol
Anyway, my dad gave it to my for my recent birthday, which occured on May 28th, and I was/still am just thrilled. Much better computers out there nowadays, and hell, this one is considered old and slow by today's standards, but it works great for me.
I've still got my job at the hospital, moving forward and up everyday that I work, still love it, doing well. I'm single again, good thing though
I hope everyone is still doing well here at VP, and look forward to hacking things up with you again. I plan on doing a major RAM upgrade here soon, then installing XP on this machine, as I think it can handle it. Can ya believe it? WinT on XP??? Who would have ever thought that would happen? Certainly not me. lol
So, much to come, and I'm so glad to be back. Again, I hope all of my old friends here from VP are doing well, and to any new users who don't remember me, I look forward to meeting/dealing with you.
