Christmas Is Not "Clothing Optional" This Year, We Have A Guest

by Rainier on Dec. 3, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

My new power supply arrived today, so tomorrow I'll open up my gaming rig and install the new PSU and check out my spiffy new Geforce GTX 275 card. It looks a little bit daunting, though. The PSU has a ton of wires, way more than I need, so hopefully everything will go smoothly.

For the past two days, we've had a sick person in the house, so quite a bit of time has been spent in front of the TV, bundled in blankies, watching The Good Wife, Sons of Anarchy, Young Guns, and a little CrimeCraft here and there.

Luckily, my office has remained a germ-free zone for now, so you'd better check those nasty viruses at the door!
