New toy.

Dude, I have a Dell. And it has a subwoofer.
If I crank things up, I can make the "you've got mail" guy rattle my desk.

Tragedy in amongst the happy times

The new computer is nice. It's not top of the line... but it's light years beyond the old Presario 5240 I've had since 1999. We're talking Pentium 2 vs. Pentium 4... 64 megs of RAM vs. 256. An old fashioned mouse vs. one with the little scrolling deal in the middle. Certainly, I'm a happy camper. Well, I was until...

I knocked my external zip drive off of my desk. I didn't think the fall was all that great -- about two feet exactly. And certainly, hardware has taken greater punishment from me before... But now, both of my computers flip out when they try to read from the drive. This can't be a good sign. The zip drive is essential for me... And I don't really have the spare cash to go replace it.
