Everything’s going haywire!

September 15, 2003 by Tim

So I was mentioning to my friend the other day that I’m trying to upgrade my computer. He up and tells me to wait, because Mercury is in retrograde.

What the hell?

Apparently if you buy anything electronic during this time period, you’ll have problems with it. As if computers weren’t fickle enough.

There is, of course, no proof and I’m not a naturally superstitious guy…

But while we’re on the topic, I believe I have settled on my motherboard and processor combination, with many thanks to all of you that wrote in to help me decide.

I’m going to be saving up to buy a Asus A7N8X motherboard, with an Athlon XP 3000 Barton processor. After that, I should only need to find some decent RAM and I’ll be all set.

I may be creating some original artwork to sell on eBay (something I don’t do very often… I hoard my original art), to help fund this new computer. So keep an eye out.
