Not again...
Please, yes, I know I do this every so often, but this time it's serious: the reason I've been away is because I'm in the process of building a new computer or I would have been if it wasn't for the fact that my video card(which I need to even have a display) is broken.  Yes, the most expensive item I ordered($220) is freakin' broken and is the ONLY thing that is broken.  So, now I'm going to have to wait another fucking week until I can have a nice computer!  Ya all have no fucking clue how upset I was.  I've been waiting to build this thing for a long time and have saved up forever to buy these parts, so to have only one thing be broken...ugh...So, I'm going to have to ship it back to Cali) which is going to cost me a hefty amount and then wait for them to process the exchange and ship me a new video card.  What's even better[sarcasm] is that they're pretty much closed during weekend and on holidays, so I'm probably going to have to wait until Monday to get a reply from them to even get the details on shipping the video card back. I'm so seriously pissed.  I even paid nearly fucking $60 for a Next Day delivery and the package containing the parts(the PC case came on time) was actually a day late.  I was going to ask for a refund or see if my parents could spot me about $100(I got my last paycheck today) so I could just run up to the store and buy a new one and pay them back once I get refunded for the damaged video card...but I found out that I actually got a really good deal on this type of video card (Geforce 6800 256mbs).  It usually runs around $350 while I got it for around $220, so I'm just going to wait another week(god damnit) and then use my last paycheck to subscribe to and buy a few PC games. 

Also, I am aware that my lj banner has mispellings in it...I'm an sue me...>:<

Good news!

My dad and I built the computer Friday night and Saturday morning, I took the old, old PCI graphics card out of my dad's old, old, old computer and was able to set up my computer no prob...well, kind of no prob, heh!

Now I have it in place of my old one and the internet connection is super fast...hell, my whole computer is insanely fast!

My dad ended up scaring the crap out of the kids that work at and got them to send me a replacement graphics card without me having to send the broken one back, ha! Well, eventually we have to, but I don't need to do it first. So, supposingly, it should be here by Tuesday or Wednesday then I can play games, yay!
