What have I been up to?  I built a new computer, I did!  It's not my first, I built a gaming computer a few years back.  It's not too difficult so long as you make sure everything is compatible, but it's still a nerve-wracking endeavor for me... dealing with all these expensive bits and hoping I don't go all butterfingers and break them.  It's not super high-end or anything since this is just my 'work' computer (I use a separate pc for gaming), but it's awesome.  Boots in 12 seconds and is super quiet!  I wuvs it.
Before, all tidy..
After!  Making computers is messy.
Hmm, my first (well, my family's first) computer was an Apple //c back around 1985.  It had a super fast 2400 baud modem, but of course going on CompuServe at those speeds got pretty expensive.  Then I got an Amiga 1200 in '92.  Color graphics and a whole 120 meg hard drive!  My first PC was a Compaq I got while in college.  After that I stuck with pre-built Compaqs up until, I think, 2008 when I built my first one.  It's come a long way in 30 years.  I wonder what they'll look like 30 years from now? 

Probably Chobits.

Also, I made a meatloaf.
And it was awesome.
