I feel a bazillion times better tonight. Saturdays are just way too long, even with naps. Maybe I will be productive tonight…. lol.

I managed to snag an old computer from work. It has no HDD or RAM, but I have that laying about. Unfortunately my problem is that I have no idea what to do with it. Before I had too many ideas and not enough computers. Now it is the opposite. I have two computers just sitting there empty, and one more that should be decommissioned, but comes in handy every now and then. Right now I am running a “domain server” for lack of a better term and a file/torrent server. My main computer is a Win 7 machine, and I have an old XP machine running next to me for general web surfingness and other such things. I had a machine for testing Linux stuff on but it was rarely used and the HDD was failing so I pulled it apart. I have contemplated a media server of some kind, but I don’t think that would get a lot of use. I only watch Netflix and Hulu on the internet and those don’t stream over a media server. We download videos so infrequently that it really isn’t worth it. We could just sync up our PCs to the Xbox and do it that way also. I am at a loss and it makes me sad. I suppose I could just make a Linux machine and put it on my KVM. Time will tell I guess.

I have fallen in love with <a href=”http://www.gog.com”>GoG.com</a>. Basically it sells old games, optimized for new computers, and DRM free. It picked up Might and Magic 1-6 and am having a blast. I have been playing through 4/5 and it brings back some good memories. I may have to fire up 3 and see how far I can get through that from memory lol. I also notice they had both Blake Stone games which I really loved back in the day. I may have to get one of those next.
