Fixing My Broken Desktop PC

So.. not much has been going on other than settling down here in New York.

I bought a cheap ol video card from Best Buy.. but guess how much it was.. $100! omg.. what POS card for $100!!! So i just wanted to see if anything else on my Desktop was broke.. and behold! it was indeed only the video card that broke. So everything else is ok.. which means the HTPC project is still on.

Behold! Internet!

So my internet came today.. woot.. cable is much faster than dsl for download speeds.. i downloaded bleach in like 8 mins (300kb/sec) woot. I have $88 in credit and $150 gift certificate from Dell.. what should i buy?? Please leave a comment if you have any ideas.

I made a short video of my apt, since the pictures don't do it justice. It's uploading right now.. so we have to wait a little bit. Bleh.. youtube keeps timing out. I guess i'll try the blogger video upload option. ok.. that's not working either. i'll try tomorrow i guess..

Having No Internet Sucks!

So.. as i write this i have no internet connection. I'm writing this on notepad so that i can copy/paste when i have an actual internet connection. I was being shady and leeching bandwith from not-protected wireless connections around my complex, but they may have caught me and closed all their modems cuz i don't see them on the wireless list. Bleh.. so now i have to wait until like Wednesday when the cable guy comes to install the cable internet.
