i can feel it dying
My PC at home is going kaput again. Despite the 256 ram I recently bought and installed, I can still feel it drawing every breath possible just to boot up. It takes ten million years before it actually brings me to the desktop. It's a kind of frustration that is absolutely undescribable. Oh and especially when I want to update Eliot? Opening iTunes is such a chore! When I had it reformatted last year, the smart-ass tech person placed Windows in my 10G HD instead of my 20G one. Such a fist-clencher.

Now here comes the hard part. I know I need to reformat it and have Windows in its rightful place. I know I need to back-up every last bit of what I currently have on my hard drive. That's a gazillion songs, photos and fonts. Moreover, I think I've lost some hardware drivers.

    Windows is fine provided you keep malwares out, like updated anti-virus and anti-adwares. Use bittorrent instead ok Kazaa and the likes. You can optimize the boot-up of Windows by removing those programs that load on start-up. As for RAM, the more the better. For me, 512 MB is the standard for home use. For I.T. guys like me, I prefer 1 GB of RAM (RAM is cheap today). Better yet, ditch Windows and install Linux, he he he.

    Btw, apester I used to go with the nick x86 on PhilMUG's forum and I was flamed for that. Guess what, Macs are using Intel processors today :)

    Maybe about time Eliot can get a new buddy? Mac Laptop maybe? In case, what would u call it?

    Avoid visiting blogs with audio/video or you'll be stucked in the aerie for life.

    apester: hahaha. sorry dude, i'm a PC girl. it's so frustrating for me to even try to use a mac.

    qroon: and for me to do all that, i think i need to reformat first... which is the primary barrier of this very, very tamad girl.

Sometimes bored. Most of the time oddly alive. Phobic of butterflies. Creatively suppressed. Hungry for coffee and shoes. This is my subconscious talking... at times interrupted by my reality.

soundtrack of the moment
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
