lol I won't be sleeping in it. It's just to keep my shtuff out of the weather and easily transportable. I was actually looking at getting one of their 6' x 12' models (with factory installed 120v electrical system, interior lighting, stabalizing jacks, and vents) to convert into a little mobile living unit, but I decided against it. It was a damn nice trailer, though.

Nothing against those who love it, but I'll bet it's nice to be out of the South.

Last bought...
I had to make an emergency run for some Frank's RedHot and some wings at the grocery store. I was busy with some important stuff for work, but the debilitating craving stopped me so I had to do it.

a pair of boots and some of those gloves that have the velcro thing so they're fingerless and not fingerless, the boots were crappy knock offs (couldn't afford $100+ for a decent pair of cats this year ) so i won't bother mentioning them in more detail.

Good for hunting and those other times when mittens are what you mostly want, but fingers are sometimes needed. I have a pair that I stole from my dad, but have no idea where they're stored - haven't seen them since my last move - probably in a taped up box somewhere. Perhaps my dad stole them back when he helped me pack.

I once bought a pair of "Big Mac" boots from Sears that would fit the same description. Insulated, steel shank/steel toe, thick monster tread sole, $35. They lasted far longer than expected and were very useful and comfortable. Sometimes generic works out to be as good/better than name brand.

yeah i agree for the most part, i doubt these things will last to the nearly three year average i get from a pair of caterpillar boots, but i don't see them disintegrating too quickly either.

It costs less than a replacement for a stolen trailer and contents. Insurance might be a good idea too. How much was the state tag for it?

Don't know yet. Wells Cargo is still building it for me. It's supposed to be done by the 25th, maybe sooner. I've got my truck insurance through Geico, so I'll just add the trailer when I get it. I can't imagine the that either the tag or insurace are too expensive, but I guess I'll find out!

Last purchased:

PNY Optima RAM (DDR2 667Mhz - 1GB)

Bought two ($18 each at Best Buy) to replace the two 512MB cards in my laptop. Hopefully this will make it a bit faster since the old RAM cards are 533Mhz.

What is your FSB on the processor? I think RAM gets faster if it increases but without passing the FSB speed.

It's an AMD Mobile Sempron. It runs at an effective 1600Mhz bus speed (I think the Mobile Semprons have the memory controller on-die like the desktop Athlons and whatnot). I bought this laptop in 2006, so it's a little old now. The processor is 1.6Ghz Socket S1. I want to upgrade the processor as well, but I can't find the model I want available as OEM or retail. They seem to be putting all of them into new laptops instead of packaging them for individual resale. I guess I'll just have to end up buying a new laptop sooner rather than later. $36 for doubling my RAM's capacity and increasing its speed at the same time isn't a bad deal, though. I'm hoping that'll keep my laptop running for at least another 6-8 months before I just can't stand it anymore.

It looks like (on your processor) there is no "Front-Side Bus" but instead "HyperTransport" rated at 800 MHz, so if the idea holds true, there will be a benefit to increasing your RAM's speed up to 800 MHz, meaning your increase from 533 to 667 will be measurable/beneficial. The way it was explained to me, increasing the RAM's speed beyond 800 MHz wouldn't help the computer any more than RAM at 800 for your processor, unless it were overclocked.

The motherboard in my laptop won't handle RAM speeds above 667Mhz, and I'm still running XP (32-bit), so that's why I got 2 x 1GB DDR2-667Mhz. But you're right; the HyperTransport is 800Mhz (dual channel makes it effectively 1600Mhz, iirc). I've got the RAM installed, but I haven't seen a huge improvement in performance yet. I guess I have to stress it pretty good to see the real benefits.

I don't see much of a point in getting a new laptop at the moment as I don't do much of anything on it(probably because I can't do much on it).

Last purchase was a dozen donuts.

way too much money to have someone rip a wisdom tooth from my mouth.

Ya know, in a futile attempt to start setting the internet records straight...

Pain scale of everything done:

The tooth cracking >>> tearing the ligaments in my knee >>> post operative jaw/cheek pain (not at the site of tooth removal) due to the dentist trying to make her way that far back in my mouth >>> having an anestetic ring block done on a toe >>> hitting my finger with a hammer >>> breaking my wrist >>> drinking a beer >>> dental surgery performed on extracted tooth.

yeah, that might have been the pills talking.

I didn't have all that stuff done today ... only the dental parts. Everything else was other incidents.

One of these days I'll figure out what planet I was on that made me think all that was done/happened today.

I had to have my wisdom teeth extracted without anesthetic. At the time I had no health insurance, and the guy that did it did it for free because of my bad financial situation.

He refused to give anesthetic because it greatly increased risk of complications, and without insurance, I'd be screwed if that happened. He basically said, take the 1 hour pain of the operation (plus a few days recovery), or take the long term, constant pain of 4 impacted wisdom teeth (which was some of the most unbearable pain I have ever experienced). The operation was hell, the recovery not much better, but it was very much worth it. I had some pretty fat cheeks for a week or so.



Last bought - nothing. I won't be able to buy anything that isn't a necessity for a while now. See another thread. I'll make it soon.

new keyboard, got it yesterday, starting to adjust to it, the wrist rest doesn't come off so it'll take slightly longer than normal, most people go "huh?" when i tell them i'm adjusting, then i explain i realise when i need to correct and backspace nearly without thinking about it and they'll only be able to tell cause i type slower.

anyway, keyboard was replacement for logitech G15 which lasted nearly a year, i'm done with logitech, they're input devices break too soon for me, microsoft only from now on again as soon as the replacement logitech mouse shits out.

Microsoft Sidewinder X6

i like it a lot, no LCD on this one is the only real downside, but it seems like support for that isn't so great anymore, one program wrote it out, not nearly all the new games that come out have it anymore, getting to be less and less usefull anyway, but i'm still sad to see it go.

Another thing about pens - I have trouble finding (even expensive) pens that won't skip or fade while writing in very cold temperatures. The ink just gets thick and doesn't transfer well through the ball point. I'm curious to see if those pen refills are good for that.

My payday was much more than expected... So, Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday to me:

Two books for a friend, but I'll be reading them first:



The Heroic Fantasy book is a collection of 14 short stories, one of which is called Demonsong, by F. Paul Wilson. It's a short story that takes place in the First Age of man (pre-history) in the Repairman Jack universe. That short story is the reason for me getting the book.

Two books for me:



Less than $20 each:



$27 each:


$32.40 each:


$27:

The Fisher Space Pen will write in conditions that any other pen manufacturer would have nightmares about. The only time I've had skipping issues with any of the Fishers I've owned isn't because of the refill, but rather because of the poor quality paper I was writing on. The fibers in the paper would separate from the sheet and form small blobs on the end of the ballpoint. The pen would never stop writing, though. And of course, when my Parker got jammed into the asphalt, left in the ice and snow for several days, and run over a half dozen times with the ballpoint extended... the Fisher Space Pen refill inside took fatal damage that sealed its fate. That's no fault of the refill, though. If you find yourself writing in less-than-ideal conditions on a regular basis, I highly recommend a Space Pen.
