No Computer Yet

daisy_knotwise dropped me off at Frys today as she and Katie went determinedly somewhere else while I contemplated building a computer. Ultimately, it turned out that Frys no longer carries the motherboard that seemed most suitable to me for the job at hand, so I ended up buying -- much to my old fogie amazement -- a couple of terabyte SATA drives for $199 each to add to the parts collection for the computer that will get build eventually.

That's only 200,000 times as much hard disk storage as my first IBM PC had. Although I'm going to mirror the drives, so I guess it's really only half that amount.
