Back by popular demand! (At least from the population of this room)

Since it's been such a LONG time since I've posted, and I can't think of anything else, my lame offering will be a discourse on the increasing ratio of electronics to other things in my room.



As you can see from the picture, my family is growing. I currently have four computers, three are pictured in the picture, and one is on a shelf off the right side of the picture. Starting from the left, you can see on the floor between the bed and the desk my beautiful, 5 year old, built-it-myself desktop, which is actually coming due for a much needed upgrade, as soon as I can acquire the much needed extra cash. (Yes i know, no such thing as extra cash...my point exactly)

Moving towards the right, you can see my brand new Laptop, which I just finished setting up a dual boot with Windows XP Pro and Ubuntu, a distrubution of Linux.

On the right hand side of the picture you see my new/old desktop, which I have acquired for the fun of playing around with it (for free, of course). It currently awaits a power supply that I must pilfer from one of the dead computers in Hickman Science Center.

The fourth, and final computer currently under my ownership, as I mentioned before, is not in the picture, chiefly because i didn't think of putting it in, and am too lazy to take another picture. It is my old laptop, that I am selling to help offset the hit my wallet took when I adopted my new laptop.

I don't know exactly why I am posting this, except perhaps to give my readers a small snapshot of my life here at southern, for those of you who are not.

I think ivan and Joel could definitely give you a run for you $ though on the number of computers in a dorm room.

Johonn said...

Two things: I love the word pilfer. Why, I don't know, but I do. I think it sounds funny.
And... I was surprised at myself for actually knowing what Linux is, and recognizing the word Ubuntu (I wouldn't have known what it was, but I recognized that at one point in time that word has been introduced to my brain).
Sadly, that's all I have to offer on this discussion of your computer inhabitants.

Bivan: Yes but i meant running as in currently running, and also "in use" were two key words as well...
:) plus I am not doing the same thing you guys are doing
Kristin: I'm surprised you know what linux is as well! I didn't know myself till about 3 or 4 years ago!
:D

I hope you manage to turn a profit on some of these beasts rather then letting other people smoke your bank book:-)

Bivan said...

Johonn said...
