I feel so left out. My desktop and laptop are too old for macOS Sierra and I can’t join in on the downloading fun. I can’t even update Pages. How am I going to complain about Apple now?

… Oh yeah, there’s always iTunes.

Got my motherboard and power supply yesterday. My case still has not shown up, sadly. I contacted the company and they said it should appear soon. They are running behind because of “Holiday overload”.     Tonight, after work, I’m off to Best Buy to get a hard drive and a floppy drive. I probably […]

I took the plunge and ordered my motherboard last night. I’m getting the Gigabyte GA-8KNXP after all.

    I haven’t seen any computers that suit all my needs and I already have some parts that I’d like to keep, so I’m toying with the idea of building my own computer. It seems about time too. I’ve been messing around with computers for around ten years, so it seems time for me to really get my feet wet.
    Right off the bat though, I’ve hit a snag. I was instantly attracted to the cool looking full-tower acrylic cases available at C3 Clear Computer Case, but I can’t decide whether I want to get the clear or Blue Ice case.
