New! Improved!

I was bored today so I decided to do a little "cleaning" around this site. For starters, I finally got into the 21st century and added an RSS feed (the icon underneath all the left menu items.. and also to the right of this post). I also updated the free software list since some of links were outdated (AVG), some if it just sucks now (Password Corral), and some other free software I've been using for several years wasn't on there (KeePass, Paint.NET, Irfanview, IE7Pro).

I've got a new server coming to replace the dual 800Mhz tank this site has been running on for the past few months. It was only $300 (including tax & shipping) and the specifications blow the current one out of the water: dual 3Ghz Xeons, 2GB RAM (to be upgraded), EIDE controllers (instead of old school SCSI standards) and a functional USB header for external storage.

I love Craig's List

You know you've reached a certain age when you get excited about a vacuum cleaner. I just got a Dyson DC07 Animal off of Craig's List for $100 cash. It's not so much that "Yay! I just bought a vacuum!" as "Yay! I just bought a $500 vacuum for $100!". The guy that sold it to me only owned it for three months, used it like three times, was moving clear across the country, and was selling everything he owned rather haul it across country (something about owning a house here and a house there).

For the most part, the Dyson lives up to almost all of the hype. We vacuumed the entire house with the old vacuum, then went back over it with the Dyson. We filled the Dyson's canister up... three times. Pretty impressive/nasty ;)
