    Talking computer upgrades

    I just ordered a CD-RW and a new 120GB 7200RPM Hard Drive... the only problem is that I now have two 40GB and one 20GB drive laying around... all western digital, all 7200RPM... I'll probably keep my *nix stuff on the 20 and use a 40 for backup... maybe I'll use both 40's for backup until I get another 120...

    I feel enlightened... and somewhat closer to you. I think we should all have a hug. :: hug ::
