New System

Before I (re)start this post, I'd like to point out something that makes Firefox better than Safari. First, Firefox alerts you if you're closing a window with multiple tabs. Second, Safari doesn't render NewEgg. I am quite bitter at this point. Also, control+tab doesn't cycle through tabs. As far as I can tell, there is no keyboard command for switching through tabs. It doesn't help that OS X doesn't like to tab through open windows.

Okay. So. I got the rest of my computer parts in yesterday, and now my upgrades are complete. My computer has been transformed from a machine that struggled to play games more than a year old, but now blazes through the newest games like a Dwarf through a field of Orcs. Here's what my computer, Ghost, now has:
Motherboard: MSI KM4M-V @ 333MHz
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 3200+ (Which, because of the FSB speed, thinks it's a 2500+)
RAM: 1x 512MB DDR333
Optical: Toshiba SD-R5372V 16x DVD+RW
Video: XFX PV-T43A-N 6600GT
Storage: Maxtor 300GB SATA150
Monitor: 21" hp p1130 (PDF)

Those are in addition to older parts (case, extra drives, etc) that didn't need replacement. I gave all my old parts (including my 15" monitor, complete with stickers) to build a new computer. Karma +1, I hope.

I'm not exactly sure how this directly effects my design work, except for the added resolution, but it makes me happy. And more moral means better work.
