Farewell Loki!!!

Loki, my home desktop just died (two weeks ago actually). :'( It had its case USB ports short-circuited due to bad manufacturing and now I'll have to buy a new motherboard and graphics card (and case of course). I really wanted to wait until 2009 to upgrade it. :S It looks like I'll have to go ATI this time, since nVidia is putting lead again on its parts and I'll have none of it in my bedroom.

Meanwhile, I've built a new, improved, Super Loki, but I've had problems again. One of the power supply cables is too short to reach the connector on the motherboard, so I've had to order an extension cable which will only be here by next week. :( Well, I can wait... (have to anyway :))

...I've made up my mind on which netbook to buy, almost. :) Either the Asus EEE 1000H or the MSI Wind, because smaller keyboards might get on my nerves. :P

Now I'll just wait for one of them to drop its price below 350€ or so. Probably by christmas...

My favourite bookstore...

...has simply got to be:

Free shipping worldwide, good customer support and most prices better than amazon, especially when you consider postage costs. I've bought 50+ books from them in the last year alone and don't have any complaints. :)
