An Early Birthday Present

Squeezed July 29, 2005

It wasn’t something I really was expecting, but I found myself with an early birthday present this week. With my old computer on its last legs (it was having trouble booting into Windows normally), I finally decided that it was on life support long enough, and decided to pull the plug.

I found myself in Circuit City, where I got myself a new HP Media Center PC with Windows XP Media Center Edition on it. Right now I’ve got all my stuff migrated over and haven’t really had a chance to play with it and see what it can do. But here’s what it looks like.

Ain’t she a beaut?

I have some mixed feelings, though, about giving up the old girl. I named my old computer “Pygmalion,” because just like the legendary Greek sculptor, I built it from scratch and fell in love with my creation. It was about this time five years ago that it was a brand new computer, state of the art, with Windows ME, and since then it has seen me through half a decade of computing.

But life, and computing, moves on…
