I'm still in a rut

Good morning!

Well, it was barely advertised here, but for Xmas, Papa TriSec brought us a homebuilt gaming computer. He volunteers at a local senior center in their computer lab, and this poor unit was so corrupt, they were simply going to throw it away. He rescued it, reformatted the hard drive, and stuffed every ounce of memory, video cards, and drivers that he could fit onto it.

It's been great - I've spent the last few days rebuilding my flight simulator fleet, as my frame rates have gone from about 15 (on the lowest graphic settings) to the mid-40s (on the highest quality setting.)

But alas...one of the casualties was iTunes and my podcast library. I haven't listened to anything or anyone since the Friday before Christmas. In other words, I'm feeling like a Fox viewer; completely out of touch with the real world.

So yeah....another open blog. My mission this weekend is to get at least Dr. Maddow and the BBC back on the computer so I can have an idea what the hell is going on around here as we move deeper into the new year.

But then again....listening to jazz and classical at work has certainly been an enjoyable diversion thus far.
