PS3 investment has arrived. 
Sunday, November 26, 2006, 12:07 PM - Technology
After many bruises to my wife, our PS3 has arrived. My wife fought at wal-mart when they announced the secret location of the PS3's, she got 5th in line when they were giving away 4 of them. She got the first raincheck for the 60Gb version. (this actually worked better, since we got a 60gb, and didn't have to pay for 2 weeks)

They called while we were out of town and said we have 24 hours to come pick it up. We came home early from vacation and picked it up.

She had 6 people ask her how she got it before she even paid for it (at the electronics counter) so they put it in a plain box to take it outside.

Ok, so after enough lawns mowing job...(heh, computer fix-it jobs) i saved up enough to get a dell 2007fp.

I got it on sale for 350$ i shall bask in it 20" goodness.
I chose it because of its s-video and composite inputs. This way i can use it as an LCD tv with my satellite TV. I currently have my gamecube hooked to it.

As its 16ms response time, i don't see any ghosting in games. It has surprised me how good it is.

Yay, free LCD

So i did some work for someone and they told me that thier LCD had caught fire, and they didn't have the receipt to take it back. I told them i would throw it away for them. Me being curiouse, i took it home and plugged it ni. i got the splash screen saying no signal detected. so i plugged it in to a video source and the screen went black, but you could tell it was still displaying trhe image. It then started to smell funny. So i called up LG, they said i could send it in without a receipt. So i did! They paid for the return and everything.

All said and done, i got a 17" LCD for free!

I gave it to my wife so should could have a PC in the living room.

Super Duper Deal.... (heh, if only i would get it...) 
Monday, August 14, 2006, 10:21 AM - Technology
Last night on digg.com, they had some 200 gig external hard drives for .58 cents. I went to the site and they were listed as .34 cents. So being as cheap as i am, i ordered one.

Reading on digg, people ordered as many as 100 of these things! i would be thrilled if i got my 1, let alone 100 of them.
