My net has been _really_ crappy today. I've gotten failed connections at least a dozen times over the period of two or three hours =P

I ought to look into the idea of getting DSL. Of course before i do that i need to figure out what i'm going for my living situation. I ought to be moving sometime within the next two or three months, but i'm not sure where. Somewhere closer to work obviously, but that doesn't really narrow it down much.

I also ought to get a new computer sometime within the next month, but i'm not sure if i should get it prebuilt, and if so from what company, or make my own. I'll _probably_ go with prebuilt, since i don't have huge gobs of freetime and because i tend to have bad luck with assembling hardware.

Unfortunatly that means it will probably cost quite a bit more. Not only will i be paying extra for the assembly and such, the prebuilt places never seem to offer the combination of components i really want. I'd like to get a reasonably high end graphics card but a somewhat low end processor. The high end processors are kind of a money suck i feel. However the computers that have the cheaper low end processors don't give you the option of a high end video card and vice versa. I'd like to get a decent computer for somewhere between $500 and $1000 but i'm not sure if that's possible if i want to get a good video card. I should do some research on exactly what i need for the games i'd like to play.

PC Club (there's one in Upland) assembled our computer, and you pick the parts and they'll assemble it for you, and we got a pretty decent warranty. We also didn't have to go and deal with Best Buy or another big retail outlet of DOOM. I have no idea about prices, but you should check it out...I get out of training at 1 and maybe I'll give you a call then and we could hang out a bit :)
