Finally I think I have fixed most of the plans for my vacation. Flight tickets ordered, cruise tickets arranged, dates fixed... Now to find an apartment in Scotland and this'll be a decent year. Maybe.

I made straight 5s on all three AP exams I took this year, which is nice. Granted, only two of them actually count for course credit where I'm going, but hey.

I'm honestly not even sure why I took the third, since I wasted eighty dollars and about four hours writing essays. Ah well.

Well, you got a neat result for that too, so you can use that to retrospectively justify your choice.

I just got my new computer today!

Of course, that means I'm going to have to spend my entire evening building it and installing the OS, and I'll have to see how much I can get swapped over tonight.

It took me a second to figure out why you posted that. :p



Gaa!  Sadface.

I've never worked with solid state drives before, so I didn't know they need a 2.5 inch form factor bay and not the standard 3.5 inch bay that a normal hard drive uses.  Translation: I can't properly mount one of my two drives!

Well, I can, but I don't feel like fucking around with zip ties and half-assing it.  It's the single most expensive component of the PC, so I might as well spend an extra $7 and get an adapter.  The only real sucky thing is that it will take a few days to get that last part and the PC is otherwise assembled.  I have another drive in there for mass storage, but I want the OS on the SSD.  Oh well.  I can wait three more days, I guess.  Honestly, I wasn't expecting the thing to arrive today anyway.

I'm seriously just considering leaving it out as Phaedrus suggested for a day or two so I can install the OS and other software, but I've already ordered the adapter.  Although, I can only do this a few hours at night.  I have two cats and an almost-two-year-old daughter, so leaving the case open long term isn't really an option.

But yeah, I was looking on-line for tips, and there's no shortage of people who either leave it sit on the bottom of their case or duct tape it to a side panel.

It's hopefully a moot point.  I checked my order confirmation, and supposedly, it's due to arrive today, which is really pretty cool.  Less than 18 hours order to delivery is pretty good for a 3-7 day ground shipment.

Anyway, if it does show up today, then I can mount it all before I put power to the thing for the first time.

I took a break from being freaking awesome at Blazblue to attend a friend's birthday party. And then proceeding to hook up with this awesome girl at the very same.

I feel like a zillion bucks right now. And it's sitting on a pile of awesome.  :D
