I got my Seagate 500GB external harddrive today yeehaw! Between three computers that brings my storage up to 780 GB.

Bot it from Walmart.com, most ppl don't know that even exists, but they sell a LOT of stuff online that doesn't go to the stores.

it was $84 including freight. Seagate. 500GB 5 [FIVE] year warranty.

I'm an idiot [ask admin or quadcrazy] when it comes to THIS stuff, but pics and videos is where I live and this is just what I needed. Cannot beat the price, may even get another one! Took me 5 minutes to set up. VERY IMPRESSED. walmart.com check it out.


OH, one other item I got was a dvd player HDMI upconvert. Magnavox, works beautifully, very happy, about $55. What it does is upconvert ANY DVD from 480SD to 1080iHD and YES it WORKS. No need to blow all that cash on a blueray!!!

I took some old VHS of 8MM family stuff and ran it thru the Lite-On to burn it to dvd. then we watched the dvd in the upconvert player. It was awesome! Hooks up to HDMI ONLY to work. excellent! Question? happy to oblige!

I think the best purchase I ever made [well one of em] was this 19" widecreen LCD monitor. Having been with computers clear back to the plasma screens of the late 70's, I'm sure it has had an affect on my eyesight. and sitting for hours in front of a TV screen is NOT GOOD. and I paid a LOT for that monitor too. Clear, but very tiring. this LCD - no complaints, does not wear my eyes out at all. Mine says 'ENVISION' on it but I doubt it matters, seems Matsushita pretty much runs the world market.

I don't see a need to go bigger, do you? perhaps when TV tuner cards are $10 each....:cute:

Yeah Ajmboy, you did a good job there! I remember reading that! 3 and 4 AM is where I live but NOT out in the cold, unlike most other people hahaha. I did ALL my shopping this year online and you can catch some GREAT one-day deals and a lot of FREE freight- they finally realized- hell, I have a cup of coffee ready for the UPS man a couple times a week! That and USPS which has been really good, considering my mailbox is a long way away and completely vulnerable to idiots and hormone monsters, I have received pretty much everything I ordered......if I didn't receive it I don't know about it yet hahahaa:cute:

those are the same pennies. I used a small box, some of that wall foam that expands, put some foam in, poured all the pennies in the middle and covered her over.

as for pics it just escapes me. I do lots of video and photo editing but this stuff frustrates me. For some reason I can't make it work! must be a setting somewhere...

I just signed up for 7Mbps speed and if I like it, I will go to 12Mbps. 20 is available, but I can't afford it....

I am sure there are skills you are better at than others....
