Baby's First Meet And Greet  
Good evening, everyone. I wanted to take the time tonight to introduce you all to the new baby, Thieves Gambit. She's an HP Pavilion Desktop with AMD Phenom™ X4 Quad-Core Processor. She also has an 20" Widescreen Flat-Panel TFT-LCD HD Monitor in black and a Deskjet 3-in-1. With the inclusion of a Rocketfish 3.5" Hard Drive Enclosure and a few programs to get things up and going (Word and Webroot Security), she was a cool $1,000 worth of awesome. I love her. We still need to buy her little friend, Vegas, but she's occupying herself with WMM for the moment. This version of it is a LOT easier to use. 

Isn't she gorgeous, everyone? *snuggles her comp*

Whoo! Sounds like she's a dream machine! \O/

God bless poor little Gambit I, I almost feel guilty trading up, she's been such a good little computer to us both, but the lag time was turning into a nightmare. It was just becoming more and more clear that I needed more gigs for all of the media and such, so this was the best solution.

I still can't get over the sheer space on this girl. She's HUGE in such a tiny little package!!

SQUEEE!!!! Looks like you've got an awesome little screamer there! :D

*LOL* Perfect description. That's the reason I love her so much. She reminds me of Kala. XD

Yeah, um I have no idea what any of that means. As clear from lack of any sort of digital enhancements on any fic or my page; I'm computer challenged. I can turn it on, run some basic programs and that would be it. I'll stick to running, writing and my violin thanks very much.
Lois: Lois :: Aha!kalalanekent on August 24th, 2009 02:20 am (UTC)
*LOL* Oh, don't think I'm some kind of rocket scientist, knowing all of this. I told Anissa what I needed for my media, what I wanted it to look like, what it had to do, the max I wanted to spend, and this is what we got. I'm just thrilled that there's so much harddrive space. I was nearly to the limit on the other comp.

And we still writing things out in script, too. I just like being able to do all kinds of neat things with the computer. ;) All our notes are done in spiral notebooks. :D

I'm surprised you do your work hard copy, but its smart. I can think of a number of fan fic authors who lost work due to computer problems. So how many spiral note books has the little secrets universe filled?
Lois: Lois :: Workingkalalanekent on August 24th, 2009 03:25 am (UTC)
And that computer failure issue is why we have the notes on the computer, but also on paper.

I know that we have two 100 page notebooks pretty full. You guys would laugh at the margin notes. :D

You totally need to have an Easter Egg of the margin notes sometime.
Lois: Lois :: Laughterkalalanekent on August 24th, 2009 04:59 pm (UTC)
We totally ought to. Some of this stuff is hilarious. :D

First off...

I want you to be cheerful more often. Mostly because I love it when you're happy but in a lesser way I enjoy that picture of Chris and want to see it more :)


SQUEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hello Gambit! Now we need to make you some kind of ridiculously amazing image and you can buy a laptop skin sticker like me. My laptop is so sexy and just screams "I LOVE SUPERMAN" any time I open it in public.

I'm working on the 'happy more often'. The computer helps a lot in that department. No more wait fifteen minutes for the thing to boot up. Goes a lot way to making me more happy.

The biggest problem with that is that Anissa has the lappy. Thieves Gambit is a desktop. Although the pretty flat monitor makes my background too awesome. I'm thrilled enough with that. :D
Me: Dirty Jobs - Mike Hee Heebrdwaybebe on August 31st, 2009 03:05 pm (UTC)
I need big cheesy grin icon. Cuz I'm happ about the happy more often *huggle* I love a smiley Lois. I mean I love an unsmiling Lois... but....well you know what I mean *snuggle*

Ah wel on the lappy - Gambit is still probably the coolest name I'f ever heard of for a computer. And I tip my nonexhistant cap to you lol

I do think pictures are in order ;)

Smiley Lois exists and she does have her time in the sun, but there's just so much sad going on in my life (Dad still looking for a job, best friend having job difficulties, trying not to quit my own) that it's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But I'm trying to keep as positive as possible.

I ended up having to return the original harddrive due to electrical problems (haven't blogged about it yet), but I have all of today to put everything back the way I want it. And I love it. I expected to dislike Vista more, but it's been pretty okay thus far.

I love the name, too. I blame it totally on xenokattz for reminding me how much I loved the X-men character and the Rogue/Gambit match. I'm actually considering changing the name from 'Thieves_Gambit' to 'Rogues_Gambit', but I think it sounds cheesy.

Give me a chance to find my camera and clean off my desk and we'll get some done. She is a little beauty, my Gambit. *snugs her badass comp*

Awwww! What a cutie-ickle-choochie-coo! ;)
Lois: Lois ::  Awekalalanekent on August 31st, 2009 09:10 pm (UTC)
Isn't she, though? She had a little electrical issue earlier this week, but she's all better now. Thankfully I'm better versed in Vista now for the reboot. :D

Considering how slow Gambler_I was when I finally gave up the ghost on her, don't be. No one should ever have to deal with a system being that slow. I couldn't run most of my programs at the end. :(
