Yeah, yeah, I know! They're coming I promise, I promise, I promise! It just might be a week or two.

It's pretty cool with a dual-core proc, because in Windows Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del) under the Performance tab, it shows two separate CPU graphs! I got a kick out of that!

Well... you could always try baking her a cake. :sick:

See, I gave my baby my notebook after I built the desktop, so she didn't even care about what I spent, since she got a free computer out of the deal. Now you know my secret! :lol:

Errrrmm, that 'secret' is no good to me as I already offload my old system to her when I upgrade.

And seeing she's partially computer savvy, and ultimatum was handed down that the next upgrade goes to her..... ::deep dramatic sigh::

Going to have to invest in some Lotto tickets :lol:

Cheers :P

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Errrk! Didn't even think of the currency conversion. Damnit, that'd cost me $4100AUD.... Oh well, so much for that idea.

Now, where did I put that Lotto ticket?..... :lol:

Cheers :sick:
