Sigh

So much for my lovely list. I wasted the morning sorting out the video card, and now I think I'm going to save the movie for the weekend (and possibly the shopping too). At this point, I'm more inclined to have lunch and put on a DVD or some music while I tidy up and then get some knitting and reading done.

But the problem I had with my computer not booting into X.org/KDE is solved for the moment by running at a lower resolution. And I used some Amazon gift certificates I'd earned from credit card points and surveys towards a new graphics card that can actually handle a widescreen 1680x1050 monitor.

I was going to hold off and do a major upgrade (CPU, motherboard, memory, graphics card) next year, but since I've decided I want a cheap laptop for travelling, this setup can wait.
