I've Been Called A Lot Of Things, But Never Funny

by Rainier on May 2, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

We managed to do most of the things we set out to do this weekend. I ordered a new graphics card (GeForce 550), saw Fast Five (good, entertaining flick, but be sure to stay until after the credits), and I even got around to putting my new PC together. Unfortunately my old dual core workhorse was more antiquated than i thought, as it still used an IDE HD as a boot disk. The new rig doesn't even accommodate that anymore, so I have to go track down an IDE/SATA connector.

In case you have been hiding in a cave, Prince William's wedding is old news. The new hot topic is the much-overdue termination of Osama bin Laden. Although bin Laden has been on the run for nearly a decade, US Special Forces has been tracking the al Qaeda leader for the past few months. They planned a raid on the compound in Pakistan and put an end to it all with a bullet to the head. Good riddance!
