Yay, stuff.

Woke up to Banshee beeping instead of playing music this morning. Maybe I had moved the mp3 files it was set to play? Anyhow, I got up, and read LJ for about twenty minutes. Then I showered.

Got paid today. Paid back more of what I owe my dad.

Then I battled my insecurity for several minutes, won, and talked to Helena until I had to go to work. It was fun.. I should talk to people more often.

Got to work just before my boss got here. ^_^

And I received the motherboard/CPU, and my present. Money! 1000 kroner!
I could spend the money on completely erasing the rest of my debt, but.. Case for the motherboard. Definitely a case.

So, the motherboard: Aopen AX4BS Pro

Uses PC133 SDRAM, so I don't have to buy more ram. I might do that anyway, since I don't want to steal Lorelai's, and Secunda only has one 128MB chip.

But that will have to wait. I just ordered a bunch of goodies (case, mouse, hard drive), spending a bit more than I should, but with the lovely cash my boss gave me for my present, I'm set for food until next payday. I'll be fine.

Oh yes, and I also got the old video card. Judging by what's written on it, 32MB. Has a fan, but only support for one monitor. TV-out. It'll do nicely for now.

Both the mobo/CPU and the Vcard will need a serious dusting. XD

Work-wise, I've been stuck in the Auditorium for the past hour and a half, helping people with whatever problems arise. Finally get to have my lunch break and tea.

I feel like I just came back from work.. Okay, walking the whole way is partially to blame. I was running late this morning, so I took the bus to save time. Somehow I find it easier to walk in the morning than in the afternoon. Might be because of the light, but probably that I'm already tired when I head home.
Especially today. I always get tired when I do anything in the Auditorium.. I think the temperature is set a bit high, or the 15+ computers generate a lot of heat.. I always start sweating, even when doing completely non-physical work. O_o

Anyway, food shopping on the way home, cooked a simple but not too bland dinner, watched episodes 62 and 63 of One Piece, wound down. Now I feel like maybe playing Daggerfall for a couple of hours, while enjoying the pot of tea I just brewed up.
But it's already an hour and a half past my regular* bedtime. I need more free time.

I even forgot to watch the latest Naruto raw. Tempted to get up extra early tomorrow morning and do it then. -_-'

* well it used to be regular.. a few months ago.

In other news, I spent over 2000 kroner today. The vast majority of it on computer hardware, but some in the LJ store.. got myself extra userpic space at last. But I haven't really uploaded that many icons.. mostly stuff I previously deleted to upload new stuff. I wonder how long until 50 will feel cramped.
