The Merc248

Tons of stuff here about absolutely nothing. Read on for more information.

School, Computer Stuff, Etc.

O, how I love thee, sweet sweet computer wish list. Sexy: perhaps. Obtainable: fat chance? But eh, hopefully it will be possible sometime soon.

ASUS A8N-SLI NForce 4 Socket 939 Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Venice CPU (high overclocking potential. Highly recommended for those who love breaking warranties.)
eVGA Geforce 7800 GT (or GTX if I get enough monies.)

I have nearly enough money actually for those parts, but alas, I have around $200+ college books that I need to buy first. Stupid college. :p

The jetlag I'm experiencing is almost a godsend. I think I'm finally getting into a more sane sleeping schedule. Before, I'd sleep at around 5 AM on weekends and 3 AM on school nights. Now... well, I'm finally sleeping at around 11:00 PM or 12:00 AM, and then waking up at... 5 AM. Yeah, it's still a bit fucked up, but I think I'll ease pretty easily in the next few days.

I'm a little peeved about my CS textbook of choice being changed at the last minute to some other $100 monster... so that means that this other $100 book I bought last spring (which was supposed to be used for my next CS class) is now officially a door stop. Awesome. ;p

I'm also awestruck by the amount of one star ratings for the next differential equations book that I have to buy, with reviews along the lines of, "incomplete examples," "obscure steps are skipped often," etc. Doh. A fun class this will be with such an excellent textbook.

Oh well. Least I'm back here in Seattle. Still working on convincing my brother to let me transfer the photos over to my computer so I can work on uploading these 3 megapixel monsters to the internets.
