As the year of the rabbit comes to an end, the year of the Dragon quickly approaches. 2011 was a good year, filled with many ups and downs, good times and bad times. 2011 seemed to last about as long as a decade. My medical board started around January and lasted until the end of October. So much has happened in this year, I’m not ready to write about it all now. As I adjust to retired life and prepare for my 2nd career, I find myself missing the camaraderie of my military brother and sisters. Although I’m glad I have moved on, especially when I think about the deployments and time away from family.
Anyway, enough about that. The kids had a good Christmas. Money is tight, but we’re surviving. We are together as a family and safe. We have much to be thankful for!
My thought are with our troops that are overseas! May you come home safe and sound!
2012 WILL BE A BETTER YEAR! And that’s that!
I am excited… just got a new computer. Since my old desktop was Ancient (AMD 3400+), I had to get a new computer. I had some extra cash, so I got me an AMD Phenom™ 9750 Quad Core processor. Stuck it in an ASUS motherboard, stuck 4 gigs of Corsair ram in it, a 1 TB SATA drive, SATA DVD+/- RW. The case is beautiful… with blue LEDs lighting up the… well… underneath my desk.
Thus far, I put windows 7 on it, but will probably dual boot linux at some point. Not sure yet. I’m kind of liking windows 7. I still have a linux box (my old desktop), which I run as a file server, serving up my movies, photo’s, and other various files. I’m running Sabayon Linux as the server OS.
I’ll stick a picture of it up later.
Since I haven’t replaced any computers in quite a while now, I figured it was time get the family a new computer or two. Picked the kids up an Compaq from Best buy. Ordered myself a barebones kit from Tiger direct and also my wife and I both got a netbook.
We’re all running Windows 7 and love it. I’m turning my old Compaq into a file server. Currently threw linux on it and I’m serving some movies from a 1 Terabyte drive with some movies on it.
