Well, June first has come and gone. I ordered all the parts for my new desktop computer for work, and then ordered The Monitor. All the parts were supposed to be 2-3 day shipping, and the nice man at Dell said they’d ship my monitor on June 16th. I was very sad. But soft! What light from yonder cardboard blox glows? Yea verily, the monitor came FIRST. Callooh! Callay!
So now I have a Celeron D (until Conroe comes out) 2.8Ghz, 2G ram, 256M video card, 150G, 10,000 rpm hard drive, and a 30" LCD screen running 2650×1600 resolution. Screenshot here.
I put windows on it first. My old machine had no root windows partition, and I wished I had one at various times, so I made a 25G windows partition. I then put Fedora on the rest, and fought with it for quite a while. I finally put Ubuntu on it, and it’s been great. I’ll do a whole blog post about changing major distros after all these years, and the stuff I liked and didn’t like.
Oh, and my phone came. It rocks.

STOP IT!! you’re making me drool….and you’re making Frank feel insignificant!
Ok, I may have to stop by just to see that. Heck, you should probably start a tour, and charge admission.
don’t forget to check the mobile.cele… version of the website on your new phone!
and don’t get swallowed up by that screen. If your face is as close to it as the keyboard would indicate….
