Yay!

I now own a brand new computer.

My old computer is four and a half years old, and is really showing it's age. P4 2.8, 2G RAM, 256M Video Card has now been replaced with a Core 2 Quad 2.4, 4G RAM and a 512M Video Card, with three 320G Hard Drives for storage.

I also picked up a new Viewsonic 22" Widescreen LCD monitor to go with my existing Viewsonic 20" LCD Monitor, and I did go with the Antec P182 case like I said I wanted to some time ago.

Woot!

The only problem? I'm not going to get to play with it until tomorrow as I've got a Chiropractor appointment tonight, so no computers afterwards until tomorrow.

My last couple of machines have been pre-assembled Macs

I need to replace my desktop PC at some stage which is of a similar age to yours. Recommendations on online stores?

Umart Online (based in Brisbane) is still a good place to look at. Good prices, thought they work best if you know what you want.

I went with Centre Com Online this time as I wanted to deal with a place in Melbourne, though I cheated and got a friend of mine to get a quote for me via the company he works for so I got a substantial discount. Centre Com are about on par with Umart with prices, and if you check out via the web site it will actually tell you the delivery fee.

I've been using Umart the last couple of years in Brisbane and never had a problem, and I've only just started using Centre Com, so I can't really give too much of a comparison yet.

Dell is an option, but if you are the type of person who actually likes to open up the machine and fiddle, it's not worth it. Dell is good for people who want the whole package and aren't going to modify the hardware. We were using them at the previous place I worked in Brisbane for a couple years with no troubles.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
