    I need that morning coffee. I wouldn't have handled nearly as well as you.

    How brave of you to be seen in public before coffee. I would have to boil mine on the stove. But it sounds like you had a productive day after all.

    Oh no!! My morning was similar...but I had just run out of coffee. This was the whole reason for my trip to the store yesterday, but I received a call from a friend needing an emergency babysitter and checked out without the number one item on my list!

    So, I had to throw on some clothes and run to McDonald's for 2 cups to get me through! A morning without coffee is not optional.

    Well, she is home.

    The video card went out on it. So, we went with an upgraded video card and man is it ever fabulous. It's a GeForce GTX465, we had an extra fan added to help suck out some of the heat, this makes 5 fans keeping it cool.

    The front fans glows a nice blue color. My desk turned out to be a beauty, I sanded it down to the bare wood and gave it 4 layers of clear coat. The blue tie-dyed looking thing in front of my mouse is my rice bag / wrist thingy. When my wrist is bothering me I just pop it into the microwave, instant heat pad. I run dual monitors for my video games.

    Total damage to my Visa card.....$400.00

    my computer, you can see the new video card and new fan.

    Your desk is beautiful! I love the Kokapellis on the front of your cabinets. You were really able to turn lemons in to lemonade with the computer failure. Good job.

    Thanks for the well wishes. It is amazing how much one misses an object. But she was in good hands, her "creator" took good care of her.
