Storm Warning Still Prevalent at Beach House

Tired. Banging my head against the wall and need more Advil Gelcaps. Apparently the motherboard decided to take the Antec power supply down when it died. Ashy has a Gigawatt Pro Series power supply that I will pick up tomorrow. You can read the specifications here. Nice unit. As expected this whole rebuild project has been one fiasco after another. I'll still win. Gotta have it up and running! Besides, I miss my 32" monitor. It's going to be fun to use it again. Even though this build is older technology it should still rock due to the quality of parts used. 4 gigs of HyperX memory and an Opteron 180 with two SATA drives striped, one gigawatt of power and one gig of discrete graphics adapter will suffice. Will install Vista Ultimate 32bit, which is actually a pretty darn good operating system since Service Pack 2 hit the updates. Will make the next one XP Pro since it still dominates the business market holding a steady 74% share. It will have digital temperature displays on the front of the case.

Calling it a night. Even took a few hours and played Guild Wars. It was relaxing to scour the countryside of Elona in search of treasure. Hopefully, tomorrow will better a more productive day. Later.
