Tonight I bought a 160gb hard drive from CompUSA (80 bucks after rebates for the next couple days) and attempted to install it. Isn’t it funny how if you know how to use a computer for anything, ignorant people automatically assume you know how to do everything on computers? Well, I feel sorry for the ignorant person who asks me to help them with a hardware issue… especially if for some strange reason I agree to help them.
Let’s just say tomorrow I’ll be visiting a computer store buying a new wire–you know, the wide fat one, and not the wide flat one with 40 wires, it has to have 80. Soon, I’ll also be reviewing Upgrading and Repairing PC’s, a book whose content many have helped me avoid my present dilemna.
