The parts for my new computer arrived! It was like a second Christmas! Lol!
It was about 2pm when the van arrived. I’ve uploaded some photos onto Flickr and you can also see them on my site here
I’ve had a test fit of the PSU into the case to see if it fits, its a tight fit, but do-able!
I’m not yet ready to put it all together yet as i need to get a few other pieces first, namely a cooler for the processor, and a hard drive and some kind of optical drive (DVD/CD)
I’ll keep you posted on progress!
Till then, happy computing!

Ok I know that this is now a little late, I was originally going to post this on the 8th but never got around to it!
Right, I think its resolution time!
But first lets have a look at last years resolutions:
1. Again, finish any projects I start, and complete any that I have started
Well, I’ve started two or three this past year, and I have completed one, and one is ‘out’ but its still being worked on!
2. Update my website and blog more often
I’ve started to do that, the past three or four months I have been trying to post once a week.
Ok, now on to this years resolutions:
- Carry on updating website and blog more often
- Finish any projects I start, and complete any that I have started (third time lucky lol!)
- Update and improve Linux Links
- Try and get Linux Links on the first page of a Google search
Now lets see which of these ones I can break this year!
Thats its for this post
Till next time
Happy New Year
Its the new year, and what a time to update my websites style!
A new year, a new style!
What do you think? Comments are welcome!
There may be a few issues, especially in browsers other than Firefox on Linux.
So if your using Internet Explorer, Opera or any other web browser on Windows, or Mac and you spot a problem let me know about them so I can sort it out. Thanks!
I don’t have any time to post any more as I should be on my way to my girlfriends by now, so I’ll post more details as soon as I can.
Happy New Year!
