On a cheerier note, we now have two ECS K7SEM v3.0C mini mobo/CPU combos for well off retail by getting them used (year old) off a fellow folder. Since we drove up to Selma to pick them up, we continued on to Raleigh and picked up a few parts to turn them into headless folders for our Folding@Home contributions. (:
Two funny things happened on the way home:
- when we stopped in at the Goldsboro Wal-Mart, we came out to find a smaller SUV parked next to us with the vanity plate FARSC8PE. I got so excited at the thought of someone else in this town appreciative of it I was jumping up and down and making happy noises, which scared the crap out of someone walking by. (He probably thought I was an overgrown 6-year-old since the water here creates tremendous breasts in the locals.)
- listening to the bluegrass show on after etown, we heard a song with the chorus "there's a hole in my bucket and I can't buy no beer".
While I was typing, the musical guest on tonight's rerun of SNL was singing about her "boo". Being out of touch with mainstream society, I asked Himself what that was. He says it's short for boyfriend. If English wasn't my dual first-language I'd give up on it entirely. This "u"/"ur"/"r"/fake-l33t crap is confusing enough.
