What is that?
It's a duck pond.
Why aren't there any ducks?
I don't know. There's never any ducks.
Then how do you know it's a duck pond?

Shana

I've had parts sitting around to upgrade Nagi, my Windows 7 box, for about a year now.  The problem is that I haven't had any time when I could shut it down and do the upgrades.

So what I did instead was buy a few more parts so I can build a whole new computer.  The config is a bit of a mish-mash, a mixture of 2010 and 2011 components: A Phenom X4 945, which is not exactly new, but with a Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 motherboard and 16GB of DDR3-1600 memory.

8 x 1TB Seagate 7200.11 drives (which is what I already had sitting around; drives are too damn expensive at the moment).  And a pair of Radeon 6770 video cards; combined they'll give me the speed of a 6970 for about 40% less expense, and drive 8 monitors at once into the bargain.*

Parts have shipped to the office, where I'll pick them up on Monday, so I can build the system, hopefully, some time after Christmas.

Nagi is three years old now and hasn't ever been reinstalled - I upgraded from the original Vista install to Windows 7 early this year - and is slowly succumbing to bit rot, so it's time for a change.  Once Shana is up and running I'll probably reinstall Nagi with the latest Windows Server.

* I don't actually have 8 monitors, but it's the thought that counts.

Someone Forgot To Tell The Weather Fairies

It's December now.  That's summer in the Southern Hemisphere.  The weather right now would be considered only moderately chilly...  Were itfor the middle of winter.

I prefer cool weather to hot, but seriously baby, it's cold outside.
