eBay really does work

The old Dell laptop needed a hard drive transplant, and I found one on eBay. The auction had about 45 minutes to go. That gave me time to research the drive, register, bid, and get really excited. And then my bid ‘won’. Party on. And today it turned up in the mail. So far, so good. I stuck it in the laptop, installed Windows 2000 (oh, and spent two hours applying security patches) and it seems to work fine. Does anyone in central London need to buy a cheap Dell PIII with 380ish Mb of ram and a 10 gig hard drive (it has a dicky battery, but you can get one on eBay)? I’ll give you a special price.

The Big Chill

Have returned from a weekend at The Big Chill . Scorching hot weather and a great atmosphere. Couldn’t be bothered carrying my camera around so very few pics. Time for sleep.
