Built a gaming computer earlier this year and I've finally finished tweaking the hardware. All the monitors I own are CRT save for a 17" LCD. Time for a new monitor for this new rig!
Its impossible to find a good LCD screen in the 24" widescreen variety. Dell or Samsung Syncmaster. Ugh.
New server closet at work. Finally. I've been pushing for this for a year now. The network has been upgraded from a daisy-chain of Netgear 24pt 10/100 switches to two fiber-interconnected SRW2048s. Fiber to the servers and 100/1000 to all the desktops and laptops in my building. A 30U rack, patch panels, 2x 30min UPSes, and new servers round out the ensemble. I'm a bit concerned that there is passive cooling only, no room AC... we'll see how it fairs. I expect to put one in.
How do IT professionals stay in shape? I've gained ~25lbs since I started office work again. Its slightly depressing for someone 21yrs old. I've taken up walking and doing minor weightlifting with 21" CRT monitors. Dont ask.
I need to start using this poor account. That is how my last one died. I didnt use it and forgot the password; I could have had a badass low(er) UID.
