31.10.2002 – Thursday 31 October
- • Today was another hot and dry day, not quite as bad as the last few days, but summer is definitely on its way. I have nothing at all to write about today, I spent nearly all day at my PC. I phoned up GameDude Computers to see why my order was taking so long, and an hour later, I received an email with my order confirmation and amount to pay, but they had left out Shan’s PC133 RAM as it wouldn’t work with my motherboard, so Shan phoned them up again and got that corrected. The Athlon XP2000 processor that I had planned to purchase was out of stock, so replaced with an Athlon XP2100, which cost more, of course. I sent of the money, all $1312 of it, and now just have to wait for the product to arrive, and hope it’s in good condition and what I am expecting. I went for a short walk in the evening, just down to the markets and back, had a shower, chatted for a while on IRC and read a few web pages, and now off to bed.
