Aside from having both my wife's trip and my own mangled by Jet Blue, a fire to help with last week, the big storm, and a bunch of work -- I destroyed my desktop PC the other day. I've been living off the laptop until tonight. It will take most of the day tomorrow to get all my software reinstalled, but no data has been lost.
This new machine is sweet enough to be fair consolation though. It's a Core 2 Duo with 2GB of matched dual channel 800mhz ram. The two processors are running at 2.2ghz (on Core 2 Duo that's roughly equivilant to a 3.2ghz P4 on most benchmarks) and drive access to the RAID 0 SATA 2 drives (yes, with NCQ) is through the 1033mhz front side bus.
In short -- Damn, this thing is fast.
No, I didn't install it with Vista. That disk hasn't come out of the wrapper Microsoft used when they sent it to me.
