    My (not really) new computer

    The factories may not have been affected, but maybe it became harder for them to ship their items internationally/get them out of the country? I mean, I guess if it was all a hoax in the end anyway, so be it. I wasn't really affected since I don't need a hard drive upgrade so I can't really complain. XD;

    Not bad!! Though once you start using dual monitors.. you'll never want to go back haha!

    Apparently the whole "flooding" thing was a sort of scam to raise prices for demand. None of the factories actually got affected. Dunno how true that actually is but I heard it pretty recently and it's irksome!

    Don: Behind that monitor I've got a 1.5TB external, and behind the games rack I have a 250gig backup external. Is that close enough? XD
    Yea, I didn't think there's much I could do. When I got this thing it was more or less top of the line for that model at the time (I think I could get a little larger HDD or something), and I still love laptops to move around, trips, etc. So keeping one in good working order is a good thing.

    Erica: I think they might be close to what they were before the flooding... then again I didn't really look at HDD prices back then. I know my 2TB has went down $10 since March. And my SSD has dropped $30 since January.

    Why would he want an external drive though? XD; I mean, I guess for transfering stuff between his laptop and desktop but honestly I don't even see why he'd ever need to use the laptop anyway. :P

    Besides, it's still too expensive to buy HDDs, internal or otherwise, isn't it? :( Or did the prices finally settle down after that flood in Thailand?

    You need an external drive to match that!

    So yours is not much older than mine. Not much you can do about the boot times except upgrade to Windows 7, but you could improve performance slightly by disabling Aero, which is what I did on my laptop over 2 years ago.

    Erica: Yea that'd be funny. Spending $1000 on a computer just to play Minecraft. XD

    Nick/Jon: I don't blame you, seeing how my last post was the end of 2010. In fact I didn't think anyone would notice this post. XD

    Don: But I have a 2TB internal drive... XD
    And I've had this one since around April-May of 2009 (yes it is Vista). It still runs really good if it's surfing the web, and even photoshop. I sort of want to install Windows 7 on it because I want a "fresh" computer. It's starting to get bogged down a little (takes a few minutes to boot up, etc).

    Get yourself a 2 TB external storage drive.

    And how old is that Vaio laptop of yours? It seems to be running Vista, so I'm curious, as my Vaio is turning 3 within the month and I want to know if I can expect it to last a couple more years.

    I read through that and then stopped and was about to hop on a plane and smack you for building that whole thing just to play Minecraft. Good thing I finished the post. XD;

    My new nail polish colors

    Wait.. ._. Since when did you become metrosexual? I used to rant on you for not even wanting to shave your teen-stache.. Now it's almost Mustache Movember and youre painting your nails? @_@

    Well anyways, the best nail colour to get is the OPI brand. Lasts the longest, vibrant colour, and no chipping ._. To help make it last like 3 weeks then I suggest you get a top coat to seal in the vibrant colour and so it wont get dull.

    I think this just single-handedly made my day.. XD

    I like the Platinum, it goes good with your skin tone. n n

    Also, the SA red is pretty badass.

    Maybe I should get some orange nail polish one of these days.

    Siggy: Why thank you Siggy.

    KanadeTenshi: It's my fav of the four, like I said... red is my fav color so... yea. XD

    Nica: Well if you would have given some good advice that night then maybe I would have gotten some better colors. But so far I think I did a good job. XD

    Abnegation
    : No thanks, I think I'll keep my feet to myself. XD

    Syd: Sorry Alabama, I can't help you there.

    Pachy: Thanks. I do believe I like the lighter colors (not counting the red), I just think they look better on me. I could give the darker colors a try someday, but for now I'll stick with what works. XD

    Tommy: That's kind of freaky coming form you. And more so that you saved the pics... but, thanks... I think. XD
