My entertainment for the weekend


Did I get a new stereo?


Nope! It's my new PC!

Last weekend, I braved the crowds at Sim Lim and bought a brand new Pee Cee for home. The older one, an ancient Dell with clunky performance had finally died on me and I decided to put it out to pasture. Now I have a sleek black 19 inch LCD screen (comes with free keyboard and mouse!) and a Shuttle-like CPU that also doubles up as a stereo.* Now I have rendered my old stereo obsolete. Perhaps now is the time to buy speakers for my iPod. And then my complete home entertainment system will be set! hurhur.

So I spent the whole weekend doing computery things, like surfing for pretty wallpaper and icons, downloading important programmes like Azureus (all the better to download anime with!), anti-virus software, downloading the latest Bleach episodes, and watching Bleach on big, beautiful screen.

I foresee many nights at home.

*Don't ask me for the specs for my new 'puter, cos I don't remember. I had help assembling this. I just had to give me requirements: must look pretty, must have big-ass screen, must be powderful enough to do some Photoshopping and watching anime and movies. All I remember is it has 512 MB RAM.

You're sure you didn't rip that stereo (sorry, steh-leo) out from some Ah Beng's Subaru WRX ?

Rather than connect your iPod to speakers, why dont you play music from iTunes instead. Lengthens the lifespan of your iPod battery.

LCN: hehehe I didn't know about the ah beng lights until the unit was turned on. By then, too late oledi. I'd already bought it.

Re the ipod, really ah? I did consider just playing my music from itunes, but I thought speakers would look so stylo.

AKK: Oh the entire setup wasn't too exxie. The 19 inch screen was only about $500 and it came with a free keyboard and mouse!

Woof!: heheheeh is too bad I don't have techno...or Hokkien pop...or whatever it is they listen to.
