Rofl@not reading the full descrip on my motherboard.
So this Christmas was quite profitable, between the gifts and a couple paychecks from another seasonal UPS gig. I'm up by one Kindle Touch, a new set of headphones, the amazing isometric PC game Bastion, and to top it all off, I'm finally running Windows 7.
Silly me, tho- I ordered a 2gb RAM stick. This would be awesome if I had realized two things- 1: I only have two slots for RAM- which means instead of adding 2gigs to the two I already have, I'd only be replacing ONE of my old 1gig sticks for a total of 3gigs- and 2: my motherboard only supports a measly maximum of 2gigs of RAM total anyway. I'm not sure if I should return the stick to NewEgg (Dad says they're pretty cool about returns; he blew up a CPU once by forgetting thermal paste, and they took it back) or save it til my next job can net me a new mainboard, and likely a CPU if I can't find the right slot for my ol' AMD.
Yeah, my 'next job'... there's a happy prospect. Back to the depressing old slog. I really do need to find work, maybe get back to school; but hunting jobs has similar prospects to hunting the dodo bird, and school has never been a high point in my life. My life is like my art drive as of late- no motivation, no energy. I think part of it has to do with these damned pills I'm on- antidepressants. Sure, they help with the ol' firey rage, but where that was there's just a pile of 'blah' leading me nowhere.
Mom's always telling me to get back into my bible. She's probably right- church is constantly giving me these little 'Aha!' moments. But that always seems to last til around bedtime, then I wake up in the same mood as before. And I've never been as enthralled by the bible itself as she is. Maybe once my small group starts back up again, things will get better. And maybe I need to find a new psych, and some new counseling.
Ugh, too many maybes...
PS: Updated my 'webcam' with my current desktop. If you notice the right screen is bigger than the left, it's cuz my second monitor is a 5x4 LCD, whereas my old main-screen tube is 4x3. Had to make a custom resolution for the second monitor, so it would line up with the first without distorting the picture. Just figured out the trick last night while messing around with the Nvidia control panel.
