New Computer
I've had nearly all necessary parts for my new computer since last Friday. My beloved girlfriend is going to get my the final piece, a 256MB DDR module...or so she says. I had a theory that she might feel better about buying me what seems to her like a silly little piece of plastic if I made it an essential piece of plastic. After all, this computer is worthless without that RAM, so in buying me that RAM, it's like getting me a whole computer.

Anyhow, that was the idea. Sweet, huh? Turns out it was massively stupid. I don't think that she properly appreciates how maddening it is to have this computer that is lacking only a $99 part, and that she just has to buy it and bring it to me. Now, of course, I can't go out and buy that RAM myself; that would be a grave sin. And nagging will surely only slow things down. So I must return home every evening to look at my beautiful new system that is a mere assembly of useless circuits and silicon lacking that RAM.
