Just (Just?) Music

Quotation of the day ~ P.G. Wodehouse: "I could see that, if not actually disgruntled, he was far from being gruntled."

Ok, okay, or, if you prefer, ok-eh, it's been a while since i posted anything and that's because i was planning a post about my transition from Windows XP to Windows 7 but i haven't actually made it yet. I backed everything up to an external hard drive, this one, in fact:

but it's been tough scraping up the dosh for a new PC, i don't earn a lot of money -- which is fine with me, i don't normally need a lot, but a major expense like a new PC creates a definite strain on the fambly budget.

So, really, all i have today is the next installment of my CD collection (Jeff Beck section), and a playlist. So here ya go:

Hiya Rich,

Great minds think alike ! I also bought a My Passport 2TB HDD. Maybe you'll get an Acer laptop next (check out me FBA post today) ?

Rock on,

GMTA, indeed, George! Mine's actually "only" 750 GB -- which is far more than i needed, but it was the smallest one he had -- i wouldn't know what to do with a 2TB drive! ("He" being Troy at -- the best computer shop in Stratford and he knows more about computers than anyone i've ever met.) Yes, i saw the FBA post, but i need a PC, my laptop runs Linux so isn't bothered one whit by the death of XP :-)
