Six years to the day, on July 4th, 2013 I performed open-case surgery on my primary gaming computer, aka [[Neo]], and on my media-server-turned-gaming-PC that my wife has used, aka [[Oracle]], and migrated the internals of [[Neo]] into [[Oracle]] and bought all new parts for [[Neo]].
I upgraded [[Oracle]] this weekend to have a 500gb hard drive in it. I got the drive, a Seagate SATA II 500gb drive for $107 at Frys. The sale ends today, 10/2, so I decided not to pass it up. Now I store all my music on that drive, and am using the 450gb RAID of 120s to store my movies that I haven’t, or can’t, burn to DVDs. That frees up a drive I can dedicate to just Game ISOs and get it off my Downloads drive that I store OS installations, and other software installation files that I don’t want to go find.
It’s been 4 months since I last posted in here, and there’s good cause for that – I haven’t cared to touch a computer in a technical capacity since shortly after I started this job doing IT support at a university. I’m on my computer all day at work, fixing them around campus, and the last thing I want to do when I get home is tear apart my computer and rebuild it.
