Geek Night - Phase One

So last night was, unashamedly, Geek Night.

For the first time in a long while, the dining-room table was covered with bits and parts as I worked to build the machine that's been languishing for almost six months.

After the usual couple of hours tweaking, downloading, installing and rebooting, I now have a working box with a 2.4GHz Athlon, 1GB RAM and an 80GB SATA HDD. It doesn't need bigger as it connects to my storage box upstairs using EoP.

Geek Night also gave me a chance to do some more tweakage on the new laptop, installing the software I need for all the stuff I expect it to do.

Damn, it was fun.

Geek Night Phase Two commences tonight, when I finally finish work - bringing the new PC onto the network upstairs and work on some personal documentation.

Happy Geek Days.....

Now that's an "action pic" that brings a smile to my face .. Nothing quite like a table of parts waiting to be assembled :D
