It builds.Â Slowly.Â Like a wave miles from shore, barely perceptible.Â Easy to miss.
Then, building in intensity, it results in a flurry of activity, an unstoppable force focused on one thing:
Building a new computer.
I don’t know why, considering there are about three of them in the house right now.Â I suppose I could get away with just rebuilding one of them, updating the internal components into something a little faster, with a little more RAM, a lot more hard drive space, possibly one of those quad cores.
I think I look at it as a research project, mainly out of wanting to keep up with technology, but also to see how far I can stretch the dollar.Â Right now I’m thinking something small that fits properly in my entertainment center that can actually be a media center.Â It’ll be different than the three other rigs I’ve built, but that’s a good thing, as I seem to have fallen into a rut with the piano black Sonata Antec cases.
I think part of this is really just getting fed up with not being able to find a suitable HDTV Tuner slash DVR combination.Â Market forces have not provided me with a satisfactory solution, so I guess I’ll just have to roll my own.
