Hi everone.
Sorry I didn't have time to... say hi to everyone again. (Holly. Paul. Jorden. HI.)

i.. am ... too ... busy.... banging myself over the head with a cast iron squirrel...

because (laugh) i thought (crazy cackle) i could install a board with a VIA chipset! (twitch)

... I think this was the.. worst $1000 I ever lost... =o_O=

This thing is about the equivalent of having said Athlon 900 chip installed onto ... a piece of toast.

No. No. Toast is more compatible than this thing. Hell, if you throw jelly on some lightly browned sourdough bread it'll even run faster! (maniacal giggle and involuntary toe-twitch)

Banging your head with a cast iron squirrel. Running naked through the rain, speaking in tongues. Sourdough bread and jelly.

You're in San Francisco, aren't you?!? No wonder you're up so late. Usually, it's just me and Dimitri around this time of night.

Put on a jacket. You'll catch a cold.

Be calm girl. Time for a little vacation, I think. And you're welcome to spend it around here. Look out from the balcony on the spare room. Go for a walk around the neighborhood, while half clothed (it's hot here!!), sit by the canal for some time looking at the boats.

it was a... a.. K7V... it still IS a K7V.

Long, long ago I swore that Asus, much like Utah, was "the right place". (?) And nothing was to be built higher than the top of a P2B's retention bracket. But not even the good Reverend Jebadiah Asus could make right what VIA made wrong. (VIA: The Taiwanese Chipset Roadhouse, a.k.a, 'Lets Get Drunk, High and Build a SouthBridge)...

Pictures, there won't be any pictures because, because it's ... not like my RR-G is WORKING or anything kaharaaayzy like that.

I like my Athlon. It's got a lot of potential, and the chip feels so powerful in my hands. I can't -DO- anything with it but it looks real nice on my desk.

I curled up and slept next to that chip last night. And swore that I'd give it a good home someday. But I might end up letting the little guy down http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif

Jorden, if I come over to that far away land where you live and they talk funny, is it okay if I sit on a rocking chair, clutching my Athlon tightly and rocking back and forth and yelling angry senile things at children who pass by?

And, actually I'm not in San Francisco. Still Wisconsin...

Oh, and Gurm, Thanks for being my Mr. T. I hope you'll always be large and menacing for us here at the MURC, and continue to pity fools (like me).
