bought a sata 3 solid state hard drive yesterday, to replace the sata 2 one. even though numbers-wise it's not much difference, some things are noticeable faster and smoother. :-)

also bought a ups (battery backup) unit. the power went out a couple of days ago, AGAIN, and I cringed. it's like turning the computer off by unplugging it - everytime that happens you roll the dice on whether it'll be okay when you turn it back on. :-/ so yeah, now when the power goes out I'll have a few minutes to shut everything down properly.

fucking power goes out more in my part of the city than anywhere else - what the fuck. it happens so often I've taken the time to make myself a 'power outage kit' so everything I need is together. that reminds me, I gotta go to the store and get more candles - severe thunderstorm forecast for later.

also need bacon. :-p

ha it's a good thing I hooked up my ups today - the power went out for a second just now and my computer didn't skip a beat. :-)

cool feature in this thing is that it beeps every 30sec when the power is out, and it starts beeping faster when it's low on juice. so I can actually keep using the computer for a while and be warned when I really have to stop. although another thing I can do is kill the computer and have it powering a lamp.
