Working on the computer, Working

Mario Party; Laptop; Roaming

Todd and I both agree: Mario Party 7 sucks. The delay time for the Mic is unbearable, and Bowser taking 20 coins from everyone every five turns makes it close to impossible for anyone to keep any coins. He keeps ruining the game economy. I very much prefer Mario Party 5's version of letting people hover around 50 to 100 coins. I would be very tempted to just buy Mario Party 5 except I really detest spending money I don't have to. Mario Party isn't a necessity or anything so I'll just wait on that.

One-hundred and Eighty-two. That's how much more I had to spend to make my initial investment into the laptop worth using. With that amount I bought a CardBus wireless adapter, the caddy for a CD/DVD drive, the actual CD/DVD drive, and an 80GB hard drive. Now the amount I have invested in the laptop is $482. On the other hand, that is better than wasting the original $300 and getting a brand new one for $500, making it a total of $800 put into a laptop without actually getting an $800 laptop. Provided nothing goes bad in the next year, I think I'll get a lot of mileage out of this laptop. (Yay! I have a laptop! Woo!)

I'm going to "borrow" my sister's PCMCIA wireless adaptor after I finish getting it up to date. As soon as the operating system itself gets done updating (Windows 2000 Professional) I'm going to install Firefox and a few extensions. Once that's done I'm going to go roaming with my laptop. :-)
