    Hey Coolme. Sorry about the sickness.

    Flu bugs have been fluttering around here as well. I was coming down with something earlier last week. Jim is "under the weather" as well... but I suspect he just wants to spend time at home.

    I like UPS too. It gives a whole new twist to those "Your personal UPS guy/gal" commercials.

    You too eh Coolme? Been suffering over here too. Not sure what it is, but you know somethings up when your shivering like crazy and sweating buckets at the same time. First day at work this week as a result. Hope I can make it through okay, I got one hell of a backlog.

    Well, good news is that my new mobo arrived yesterday MSI KT4VL. Seems like a nice board, but I haven't really tried anything much with it yet. Got to say, I love the quietness of my new Antec TruePower 430W too, much nicer than the 300W that came with my 1030 case.

    The only thing that concerns me is that I tried setting all the memory timings to where I had them on my old shuttle & I couldn't get into windows I'll have to try one at a time & see where I get to.

    Incidentally, it seems that I may not have destroyed my old mobo after all When I was putting my new mobo in, when I first tried to power up nothing happened - just like with the old one. Well, for some reason I decided to try a different power cord & then it worked !!!!! I had been using a cord from the UK with a fuse in the plug, which must have blown when I had the "incident". Now I need to test the old mobo to see if it still works. Haven't told the missus that story yet - don't have the guts

    Hmmm... let's piece this all together shall we?

    - Jim's new computer arrives yesterday from NewEgg.
    - Jim's at home 'sick'





    "*cough* Hey (insert boss' name). I'm *hack* sick."

    Translation:

    "I'm waiting for UPS to show up with my package."

    Yeah, me too - today at least. But not for much longer I think. Feeling like crap this afternoon. Need a couple of hours of shut-eye I think, then we'll see how things are.

    btw G, let us know how that new vid card goes Lucky bugger!!!!

    Hey everyone... I'll take the best ya got, I need to kick back and relax. Was in WalMart for 3 1/2 hours while mom was at her doctors appointment Oh well, at least they had The Scorpian King in the DVD player

    Went into a computer shop today, was quite surprised. Full retail copies of MS-DOS 6.22, Windows 95, and Windows ME were the only OSs on their shelf

    Jim: Glad to hear ya got your new mobo. The TP430 is quite a bit quieter then the PP303X? I'm thinking of getting a new TP430 one of these days. What do they go for these days? I'm to lazy to check

    If at first you don't succeed, redefine success.

    LOL. What's MS-DOS?

    And yeah, the TP430 is really quiet compared to the PP303. Doesn't push through as much air, but it's thermally controlled I believe. I guess antec know what they're doing

    'morning all. How's it going? I'm finally feeling more like myself & got into the office and managing to get some work done at last.

    pacmanfan. Sorry, forgot the 2nd part of your question. I picked mine up from bestbuy.com for $99, but I can use my CC to pricematch that to the lowest I can find it - something like $60 or $65 right now.
