ZOOOOOOOOOOM!

Oh holy Speedy Gonzales...

NERD ALERT.

Just installed a GIG OF MEMORY in my 'puter, to match the half-a-gig in there already. Oh holy fast as greased lightening... My computer booted from a cold boot - with all of the things I have in the start menu, which I really shouldn't, but... - in 32 SECONDS. 32 seconds for ready to go computer screen from dead screen.

I am going to celebrate this speedy new computer situation with opening a million browser windows, streaming music on WinAmp radio, running BitTorrent, play in PSP8, have Solitare rocking, open up every chat program I have and maybe something else, I don't even know yet.

...I was almost willing to go back to WORK so I could have a fast computer again. Which is crazy talk. CRAZY. (But I was on the Southern US internet hop and had 200 computers, each with four TERABYTES of data space, not to mention a TERABYTE of memory in each server. Rows and rows of lovely, geeky, heart-pounding speed and space and access and it was all mine, ALL MINE!)

And now I won't need to sully my soul with a job because I have SPEED OF MY OWN. *salivates with a nerd's pleasure* If I get the sound card upgraded, and a DVD burner like I NEED, omg, I will be UNSTOPPABLE. *rubs hands together with glee*

[ETA!!!!]: Why are there no screepcaps online of the homo-erotic volleyball scene in TOP GUN??!?! I have a serious need for those pics if anyone has a clue... NEED. Like O2.

Dude, I NEED a DVD burner. Need. Like how some people need water and shelter? *laughs to cover my shame*

CD burner I got. I have to borrow Mr. S's laptop to screen cap DVDs and that is WRONG. Like Bush in the White House house.

Gratuitous Geek Jokes:

There are 10 kinds of people in this world: those who read binary and those who don't.

Heisenberg gets pulled over for speeding. The cop asks him: "Do you know how fast you were going?" and Heisenberg replies: "No. But I know exactly where I am."

Chemistry joke: What do you do with dead people? Answer: Ba.

The clock is ticking down to it. *WOEZ*

Aw. I saw where you're talking about. On the upside, I don't think people click on the comments before clicking on the actual story link.

Ir's nice to see that I'm not the only one who posts exuberantly about computer upgrades. Oh, and thanks, now I feel wholly inadequate because yours is bigger than mine. I only have 1 gig of ram :-(

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
