Ctrl+Alt+Del - Scott & Ted

Almost back to normal

The first computer box arrived today. After I pulled everything else out, I put the case on the floor. It was a little banged up and, at first, I was very concerned it was really screwed up. The cpu fan / heatsink had come off, one of the case screws had been bent in, and the part housing the floppy drive and hard drives had bent lose thus breaking the plastic front of the floppy drive. I fixed those things and have it hooked up across the room; it seems to be working fine. I don't have an ethernet cable long enough to reach it so it's not connected to the internet yet.

I do hope they take better care of the monitor or I will be filing a claim on that if it doesn't work when I get it. A monitor that big still goes for $200+. The computer itself is worth about as much too.

Also, I did forget the GameCube memory card in that box. I found it as I was pulling things out, so no harm done.

PS: Another thing I'd like to get at some point (soon) is Mario Party (preferably version 5, as that's what I have unlocked data for already).
