I could have sworn I'd posted in the blog before this. And now that I'm thinking about it, and looking over at my post count, that I've posted more... Hmm.

Anyhow, yet another bit of mindless tribble to bore the masses with. I'll be updating this blog to the best of my abilities in regards to my current mundane project of building my first PC-from-scratch. Mucked around with upgrades in the past, even had a PC built for me, but I've never had the singular pleasure of building one m'self. My goal is a solid machine with ample storage that will run most of my art editing programs without choking on me 10% of the time.

These are the physical components I have in my possession so far:

One (1) ASUS Vento 3600 case (Green)
One (1) 512MB RAM stick
One (1) wireless mouse/keyboard set

Yeah, it's not much, but it's a start. I've got a soundcard coming in from a fellow enthusiast, who's upgrading his system and doesn't need it anymore. I'm also intending on getting a Dual Core CPU (minimum), two hard drives (1TB minimum of space), a couple of DVDR drives, and various other odds in ends. I'm hoping to have a list of all of the specific components by May, and have them all in my possession by August. Why that time period? 'Cause that's my summer break, where I shouldn't be dropping hundreds of dollars on school books.

Other than this, I'm just focusing on working full-time at my job as Medical Records/IT Specialist at an oncology office (sorta got slid into that last part), and going to school full-time to pick up my IST degree. So far have gotten the non-IST classes under my belt and out of the way, and the few CPT courses I've taken have been boring and repetitive. How many times do you need to learn how to make an Excel spreadsheet, really?
