Resurrection of Holly
Work , Tech , BLOG

Holly's been reborn as an Athlon 1Ghz, now with 640M RAM. In moving the hardware that could be moved (The old Awe32 couldn't make it, as it was ISA, so I'm using the onboard audio on the new system), I arranged things so it shouldn't get quite so hot (the new case is bigger, has a better CPU fan, and I used string to add a new fan to the system, positioned behind the giant drive, and blowing air on it), and all seems to be good. Well, kind of. The monitor on the right seems to be suffering a bit from odd visual effects, and I'm not sure if that's a KVM thing or just a monitor age thing. Maybe I'll need to replace the right monitor the next time I get some money to blow, although right now my expenses are ugly enough that I know it'll be awhile before my accounts heal from this recent series of disasters.

I'm very happy with work, with my boss, and with what I'm doing. Woot! I also had a great time at Zets tonight.

Once Verizon gets me online, I have a lot of journal merging to do -- some entries are on holly, and thus not on the internet or accessible to me most of the time. Some are on liam (at work), and are in the seperate journal I have on my webpage, and some are in my notebook and not recorded elsewhere. Some are both in my notebook and on liam. Bleh. Still, it's very nice to be able to sit at my computer desk and have both holly and forrester up, able to complement each other like they're meant to.

Anyhow, I'm so sleepy I'm dizzy. Bedtime for me. I hope this holly won't die overnight like the last one did :)

Actually, I think I might want to adjust that string fan, so I'll probably shut it down. *shrug*
