Another year down…

As I'm unable to sleep due to the flu I seem to have contracted I guess I should post a bit…

This holiday season I got myself a new laptop to replace the gigantic PC I have. It's a new Toshiba x205-SLI3 which is a 'gaming' notebook mostly due to the two SLI 8600GT video cards in it. My other present, from my roommate, was a really nice 300-something piece Craftsman tool set and toolbox for the WarWagon – which is a most excellent present I must say.

For the house I picked up a new DLink DGL-4500 wireless gaming router to try and get rid of some of the CAT-6 we have strung all over the place here…

The presents I gave this year were a 40-inch Sony Bravia LCD TV and really nice glass and steel stand for it. Zeze, my roommate, seemed pretty happy with these gifts… Now if only there were, in my humble opinion, decent shows on Cable to watch. 🙂

We actually had a white Christmas here in Colorado which, for all the winter imagery the state has, doesn't happen very often so it was a nice change of pace. We got about eight to ten inches of snow yesterday and it's still spitting a bit out there. Right now the grounds crew are attempting to plow the parking lot, but they arent very good at it and usually wind up making a mess. Fortunately the WarWagon isn't even slowed down by six foot high mounds of snow so getting to work about 6 hours from now and getting Zeze to and from dialysis this evening aren't a big deal.

All in all, even figuring in the flu bug, it's been a pretty nice holiday season.
