Not that anyone is all that interested. But lets see what have I accomplished so far today? I built a computer this morning only to find out it would be best to spend about $150 to upgrade some older parts and put in more RAM. This system is basically going to end up and be an updated version of The Dell Hell PC I worked on the other weekend. That turned into a little bit of a nightmare. You'd think I would know by now that nothing can go smoothly for me. This machine will end up running Vista Home when the new parts arrive. I've cleared out my newspaper backlog. That took me two days to accomplish. Now if I could only do the same with the DVR unit. I'm thinking that would take two or three eight hour days to get that cleared off. With some of the leftover parts I might still be able to keep our original Dell up and running. This is is the unit that I did the permanent overclock to. It's been a part of both of Cheryl's sisters homes. I think that PC may be going on 6 or 7 years old now. It still runs smoothly. I'm just not a big XP fan anymore. Which is all that machine will run. No Vista Home on it. Do to the amount of RAM and the slower processor.
I could have tried to finagle Vista onto that machine. But I'm not sure I would have been able to achieve that goal. I like to prove people wrong when they say older machines can't run newer operating systems. This time around I gave in when the installer said no go. In the end that machine along with a lot of other parts lying around the house. May end up going to a local charity. While the list above isn't all I have done today. It does show that I haven't just been lounging around the house all day. The weather has been horrible but not as bad as other parts of the country though. It rained very heavily earlier and the wind hasn't calmed down at all. It's been extremely windy today.
