I want pictures! Pictures of the Hive-Mind in its natural habitat!

And I also want you to explain to Rasa why your new system is so much better than the one she's planning to build. Because, to be fair, apart from the paint job I'm stumped.

Hmm, I haven't seen the stats of Rasa's computer. I couldn't say it's better than anything one could build, though. I was actually thinking of building my own. Here are some things I like about my system that aren't related to the specific hardware:

The size: The tower is quite bigger than common systems. This gives me room for 4 large bays and two small bays. I think I have about 7 PCI slots, as well. It also allows for a lot more air circulation, which leads to the next thing,

Cooling: Five fans. 1 for the Power supply, 2 for the case, 1 for the CPU and 1 for the sound card/expansion slots. This keeps it running super cool (which will allow me to overclock it in the future ;-)


PS: Since I have the cam hooked up:





Sorry I haven't got back to you on this. I've been super busy with the kids. They leave saturday, so I'll look into shipping options here after that.

I didn't have to build it. : ;-)

That's really it, besides the spiffy paint job.

PS: I don't have the box after all. I have that for my 30.06. It doesn't say on the gun, it reads, "chambered for 2 3/4 and 5 IN. shells -12GA- 28 IN. ACCU-CHOKE- I have a cleaning kit and the extra chokes, as well.

This is a Mossberg model 500. I got it from K-Mart.

Alienware? What's that, some high-tech dildo or something?

Did the Alienware come with a free anal probe?

No, but it came with a free t-shirt and this cool, rigid mouse pad. Yippee!
