The sacrifices we make...
« on: July 14, 2005, 01:47:20 PM »

Well, today I set out to get another new HDD.  I had decided on a nice 250Gb SATA from Western digital.  My parents were both at work, so I had no access to automobiles.  The store is about 10 kilometers away from where I live, so I figured; why not bike it?  About 5 min away from the store, I had to maneuvre around some construction that was going on, and I blew the rear tire on my bike.  Near the comp store is a Canadian Tire, where I could get a new innertube for my bike.  My problem was: my bank card is set up so that I can only make one in-store debit withdrawl per day.  This meant that I had to choose between getting a new innertube and going home empty-handed, or getting a new HDD and walking 10k while pushing my bike in 35 degree heat.






I now have 700Gb total storage.

Ah, the trials we go through for our addictions!

Look at it this way:  Now you've probably had enough exercise for a month and you don't have to feel guilty about not getting away from your computer!  :P

Computerfreke: 162.00 CAN before taxes.

PIYIRIO: Because I'm an idiot, and this makes for a way better story.  Seriously though, I should check out if that's possible for me, that would be handy.
