You haven't sold out dude. Your coming up on another day sober and that's whats important. Plus there is no rules in A.A. and you don't have to believe in anything if you don't feel the need too. Why hell I'm enjoying my D.R.A. meetings so much I might go back to a couple A.A. meetings myself. I think having my foundation in secular recovery rebuilt again, I wont feel intimidated by G*d talk like I was when I quit going to A.A.. That and I kinda miss some of the misfit characters I used to get a chuckle out of when they shared.

I think this is a good indicator on my mood lately. Because when I'm in a low mood I don't play my video games. Also I'm back to learning HTML/CSS for web pages. Another big time consumer and good mood indicator.
Wow do we have shared interests. I am a big Sims fan as well. I was recently going through all my old video games and the only ones I kept from the last ten years were my Sims.

As for CSS, I have Eric Meyer's book sitting here. I really should start reading it again.

Yea Alera I'm in need of a bigger and faster CPU so I can play Sims 2 or 3 and get Spore to play. I'll have my car payed off in February , then it time to build a gnarly gamer , well as close to a gnarly gamer as my limited budget can handle, but by building it myself I'll save mucho green backs.

I was in the same situation last year. I was able to save up for a new laptop only to have it crap out on me. So I replaced it (under warranty) with a new one that is also a gaming machine. It plays everything from Oblivion:Elder Scrolls IV Game of the Year version to S.T.AL.K.E.R. and the brand new Alone in the Dark. It has a NVIDIA card, TV Tuner Card, 4 Gig RAM and a decent (350 GB) hard drive. It even has a number keypad. It is marketed as a Gamer/Multi-Media computer and I am even able to record and then burn on DVDs of TV programs. The model with a larger screen was featured in ComputerWorld this year on their Christmas list, but I was able to get mine at 2/3 the price by shopping around for a discounted price.

Before I bought my laptop I built the last two desktops I owned and did everything but build the case and motherboard on our third computer.

I would have done the same with my new computer but I needed a laptop for school. Its amazing that in this day and age our house is able to run a bunch of laptops without a single desktop via wireless...and still print, scan and (of course) play the most recent games.

So far the only games that don't run are all having VISTA/VISTA 64 problems(such as a bunch of the ID games), not problems with the computer hardware. I was amazed that a laptop can "imitate" a desktop so well.

When you start building it, I hope you will share the specs and let us know how it comes along.

Will do. I'm having fun just shopping for all the components. Also there is an Intel base kit (XFX nForce 630i Socket 775 XFX MG-63Mi-7159, Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 OEM, 2GB Corsair TWINX PC6400, 500GB SATA II, Silver ATX Mid-Tower Case, 450 Watt Power Supply) that sounds like a good start and affordable for me at $350.00 on my credit card. I could pay that off in 3 months. But I'm still looking.
