Change of Plans

This morning, I gave up on my effort to upgrade and repair the old studio computer. It's a bit over three years old, which means that it's time to give up and get a new box that does what I want. So I ended up at Fry's this morning, where I bought a new motherboard, processor, case, RAM, video card, and DVD-RW drive (cleverly forgetting to grab a floppy drive, but it turned out I had a spare at home). I've spent the afternoon assembling the beast, but I won't be trying to boot it up until tomorrow, because it's time to head off to Dave and Helen's New Year's Eve party.

I really hope this thing boots.

And I hope you all have a happy new year!
