My blog is now 100 posts old. Cool. Didn't realize time had gone so quickly. Speaking of old...

My computer is dying a slow painful death. The Windows side now occasionally loses track of the power connection, decides there's no battery, and promptly shuts down. It's really annoying when you're trying to kill a guy in WoW, or chat with Vinny, and then your computer dies, and it takes 15 minutes to start back up again, because Windows sucks. However, my Ubu partition is fine, and it never experiences this problem. I think something changed with the new bios I installed that affects control of the fan and heat dissipation, because the fan is also really loud whenever I've got Windows booted up.

I want to take this computer all the way through college, because I can't really afford to get a computer every two years. If something fails seriously, I may try to take advantage of my extended coverage plan at Best Buy that expires at the end of this coming summer, but I really hope ::knock on wood:: that nothing bad happens. I'm going to have to start backing up stuff, just in case.

Something I've been looking at is the possibility of getting a netbook and trying out using the cloud for everything. I'm still not sure how I feel about it, and my fingers are fairly large, but it would definitely be a change. And I don't play video games on my computer a whole lot anymore either, so that wouldn't be a serious issue. And if I did want to play games, good desktops are pretty cheap now that laptops are the standard.

I dunno, I'd really like to not have to replace my computer. That would be great with me.


Sorry I missed the update yesterday, it was a busy day. I also didn't have much to talk about, so I guess I'll talk about what I did yesterday, since it did take up a lot of time.

I woke up and went out to breakfast with my folks, which was nice. Apparently, my dad's worried that he's going to be laid off. I became aware of this situation one week ago, despite the fact that it's been going on for several months. ::facepalm:: So that's fun. It puts a brand new spin on being a Senior next year, and trying to make money this summer. Breakfast was good though. :) Eggs, hashbrowns and biscuits with gravy. Yum.

After that I sat around for a while and then went to Baker's Square to have pie with some friends who came back to town on Spring Break. I didn't get pie, but we sat around talking for a while anyways, and then went to the liquor store and then called it a day.

I ended up going out for coffee later with one of that group of people, which was a great time. We sat around talking for about 3 hours, and had a very good talk. I then went to a party at another friend's house that was kind of low-key, and sort of ... interesting. There weren't very many people there, and there were one or two pretty bad awkward silences. People had just run out of things to say for a little bit. :\

That was my day. Today I'm not sure what I'm going to do, but I don't think that much. I'd like to play it much more low-key. We'll see how successful I am at that.
