Night.

Made mac'n'cheese.

Made a copy of our music professor's $17 CD in a fancy case that's required material for homework..... 10 tracks of him blowing notes and scales on his french horn. I hate that guy. Blythe borrowed the CD from a friend, so I'm making mp3s for us.

Watched Survivor ... good stuff.

I now have all the parts for computer upgrade... new cd-rom, floppy, motherboard, processor, memory, two new 60 GB drives (RAID-1 array), some cables, and two mounting brackets to put harddrives in my 5.25" drive bays.

But.... this leaves me with an extra motherboard, processor and memory. I really want to play with QNX or Be or something.... it'd be cool to have a computer to just mess around on and not use for anything serious. Hell, I could play with the Hurd.

I'm thinking I should save these parts and buy a new case, floppy, sound/video/network card, and use my extra monitor and have a mess around system.

I'm downloading the latest Debian ISO right now. Work on my paper tonight, or build my new computer? Hmmm.

I need to go to the store first and get some things.... most importantly, ice for Dr. Pepper.
