    Indeed. I bought a barebone kit and have built my own PC and would never look back. Even though it runs XP, my desktop still flies. I do have the upgrade for Windows 8 I bought at the beginning of the year, so I plan to clean up my hard drive and then make the leap this Christmas when I have the time to do so...
    You may well be better off just buying a new hard drive and doing a clean install of windows 8. Well its what I would do anyway im guessing that your hard drive has to be at least 5 years old. Just thinking a new install then transferring what you need from the old drive may be less problematic in the long run.

    All this talk of computers made me start looking at parts again. I've been thinking for some time to build a media center of some sort. Looking at the parts I was able to throw something together for about 250. Keep in mind this isn't for playing games.

    Damn, now I want to buy the one with the GTX770 instead of GTX660 with the thought: "If I invest all this money I could do it right!"

    I've started to use the forum in the lab, I think it shows ;)

    That overclockers site do some great purpose built media centre cases. Bit pricey mind you but all depends if you want a useful display on the front.

    Yeah if it takes that long there may well be something wrong with it - you might want to call IT to get that fixed

    I didn't want anything too fancy. I didn't even want a disc player. Just something to use for online content really.

    My wife's laptop was a year old when W8 came out. They still haven't released drivers for the SD card and have no plans to. Not only that but I had to find alternatives to fix other bits. That tells me everything I need to know about Sony.

    That William Shatner picture reminded me of a video I saw on a Facebook feed recently. However I don't have access to YouTube at the moment. It's basically a Star Trek spoof of that Miley Cyrus twerking thing. It's quite funny.

    There's supposedly free wifi on the airport bus near my place but it doesn't work well. I want to see wifi on trains or at least a better mobile signal would be nice.
