Can you believe how FAST your new computer is? I was always in awe of you for refusing to have the latest and greatest. Now, I'm glad you're one of us!
SE is the same as always, so wear your protective equipment when you enter. And yes, you were missed!

Sorry I haven't been posting *anything* for quite a while, but have been super busy - just had time now and then to pop in and see how the asylum is holding up - yeah, I just escaped temporarily, hope someone noticed?
Some of the "ole timers" here may remember wayyy back (like in 1999?) me threatening to upgrade my trusty AmdPR75/Win3.1/Netscape3.08/ which got a screaming upgrade to a Pentium166/Win3.1/etc rig about a year or so later.
Well, I finally bowed down to electronic evolution (uh-oh he used *two* E words!) and built a new rig. Nothing really fancy, but of course in comparison it's so cool I can't look at it without smiling.
And to think I used to preach how over-horsepowered most computers are for most people! That's still my line and I'm sticking to it... but I have seen the light, sorta. And I'm thankful noone here came right out and said "bollocks!". Thank you all again.
Now I just need to save up for the eventual release of Doom3 (or whatever) and see how lame *this* rig will become, shortly! :^)

How has the forum been? Everyone good and cranky? I must say one reason I went on semi-sabbatical from SE was that the political "heat" seemed rather high, but I suppose it's to be expected with the world "situation" that WE are ALL in Together.(hint hint)
I saw a sig the other day that struck me - "Plan to fail, do not fail to plan" which umm, seemed appropos of um, you know.Insert appropriate emoticon here - rueful grin, maybe?
