I'm on the computer, violating my fast. I'm allowed to use the computer and listen to music from 8-10PM, and also at school.
But I just listed something on ebay, so there. And I always enjoyed a bit of freedom. Even when they're self-imposed rules.
my new computer can't play DVDs. It's too slow. I spent like 3-4 hours trying to find the fastest decoder. Turns out, it's free. It's Dscaler 5. Still, there's choppiness in the audio. I was going to get the 1.1ghz celery, but I got the wrong chip. It was a tualatin, I need a coppermine. ugh. So, I'm getting a PIII 900E. And then a heatsink. then a fan. My new QUIET hard drive is coming in tomorrow, so we'll have a non-listen to that. I'm going to cut a hole in the case.
In a completely unrelated event, I finished "East of Eden". It's disgusting how well Steinbeck can pin the human psyche. He makes you hate characters, love them, and then hate them again. Everything in that book is so rich. I feel like he understands me. Strange. It goes on my recommended list. Thanks, Michelle for giving me the book for christmas.
I want someone to read it, so that I can discuss it with someone. It took me a good 2 months to read it, but that's with leaving it for a while out of disgust for one of the characters. I will not divulge my secrets. Leaving now. going to bed.
