computer smash

There was a time when my computer, a 1.0 Ghz Pentium III with hardware acceleration, might be considered a minor deity, but while running modern software, it’s more of a heathen; It’s sluggish, unresponsive, with compile times longer than Jay London‘s hair.

I’ve been looking at getting a new computer for about a year now, and I finally found one for the right price, so I’m making the plunge and purchasing a brand new Dell. In comparison with my current computer, the Dell’s processor is three times as fast, the memory is four times as fast, the hard drive is twice as fast, the video card exists, and there are many other favorable comparisons as well. Click here for an artist’s conception of what my finished computer will look like (If it’s assembled in a spanish speaking country).

  1. so on that “minor deity” comic strip, does the author end every strip with a question?

  2. He ends this one with a statement. However, it has been mathematically proven that question marks are inherently funnier than periods, while exclamation points are just plain annoying.

    Also that comic is known as “Penny Arcade,” with the comic in question being written in 1999.
