I finally bought a new machine (powerspec, 1Ghz Althon, 256M RAM, 10G/30G hard drives). I need to watch TV. See, I don’t have one of your primative Earth television sets. By using a TV tuner card (ATI All-in-Wonder), I can have “Love Boat” playing in a little box while I do my bills with Quicken. I have a VCR and cable box attachted to it. Of course, WinMe (harder) is barfing on the new hardware because WinMe is a little bitch.

Soon, my long national nightmare of winders will be over…I hope.
