    Found him Shivers! Let's get him! Don't worry, we'll do it all before his Mrs. gets home. That way, when she asks, "What happened to you?", he'll simply look and say, "Shivers and Sif"!

    LOL

    I still have to add all my software and put all the goodies on it I currently have on my laptop. Shouldn't take more than a couple hours tonight I hope. But... I'm incredibly excited.

    The picture is super small because I thought it only fitting to take it with my T-Mobile G1. Complain if you want and I might break out the digi:

    [​IMG]

    A few things to point out about the picture:

    • The calendar is still on July 2008. Partly because I'm at my girlfriends place all the time and partly because my organizational skills are wackadelic. New Years Resolutions anyone?
    • There are only 3 things on my bulletin board, partially because of the above. They are (1) A Baltimore Ravens Schedule, (2) A fortune from a fortune cookie that says, "Time to collect those goods." and (3) A prayer card of St. Anthony that my Grandmother gave me... he is the finder of lost items and we're both always losing things. Ever since I was 5 I remember her always saying, "Pray To Saint Anthony and he'll find it. I'm not super religious and I have my own little view on religion but that is relatively unimportant cause I think people should just have their own views on religion and be inwardly content with them. Although I don't oppose talking about religion most people try and turn it into an argument.
    • Coffee and Coke are beautiful things.
    So there you have it... my 22" dual monitors next to my new desktop PC and POS laptop that I will use for my bedroom and on the road. The only problem I perceive having is keeping data consistent and making sure i always have what i need when i leave.

    According to Phases, before I know it, I'll be"introducing yourself, "hey my names rob, I'm more productive than you and everyone you know combined. have a lovely day"

    As long as they don't respond with, "You have Vista, I have XP," I think I'll be fine.

    Man, I want to build a system so bad but.. I spent what I did on this one 3 years ago so that it would (hopefully) last several (more) years, while staying halfway relevant.. so..

    /cry. But I could build one that's at least 2x, maybe up to 4x what this one is, for half what I spent on it.

    Makes me sad.
