my house comp died… yeah… finally… the blue screen of death appeared and i’ve no idea how to fix it… after numerous ‘operations’ to try and lengthen its (pretty long) life – changed HDD, changed video card, changed DVD drive – the comp that i brought to australia and back has decided that its pentium 4 processor and watever has had it… or it could be due to my dad’s use of the IE for his surfing purposes… as you can see i’m not a big fan of that browser… preferring to use firefox instead… oh well… i’ll prob not know for sure until i send the HDD in for servicing (or reformatting)…

luckily for me i still have my apple ibook on hand to offer me some comfort (and internet surfing capabilities) so that i can actually type this out here… in the meantime i’m actually in the process of procuring another new machine for the house as my dad do use the comp for his own stuff… i think in the new comp i’ll uninstall IE and make sure that firefox is the only browser available… heh…

intel core 2 duo… 250gb HDD… 4G ram (yes… hehehe) plus a GeForce video card… yumz… i think i shld be able to play ‘the sims’ decently on it right?? LOL

in other news… my german colleague brought me some sausages from his country (thanks chris!) for all the last minute work he’s always asking me to do.. ahhaha yes i always tell him ‘you better bring me some sausages!!’ and so he did… and today i made myself a german sausage with italian pasta lunch… bot marinara sauce from da paolo’s at paragon (very yummy.. u shld try it) and my fettucine was al dente!! i is pleased… =D

also wrote my first all italian email today.. wahahahah that was quite a challenge for me… loads of word reference-google-flippingthrunotes whilst doing that and i hope the other party can understand me… kekeke…
