my computer is up and running... actually i am on it now! a lot of work on Dougs part putting it together, now i get the fun part of tweeking it so i can actually stand how it looks. *wee* and i am using linix so luckily i live with a computer guy who can answer my every question... *kiss kiss* anyways i am off to play with my new toy. n stuff. send me music and pics please, i need to fill this thing. speaking of filling, Doug worked it out one night and i have enough space on my hard drive for over a year of continuous music files playing 24/7. guess how boring his job must be. LOL.
