Life on a 56K

Today I picked up a new PC from pantip plaza. A Pentium 3.0 with 1 GB ram and the most complicated motherboard I have ever faced.

Gigabyte 8I915P Duo (Pro)

It comes with 4 serial ATA & 6 IDE support. (4 of that on RAID), 7.1 stereo sound, 8 USB2.0, and then some. This is my first time with RAID and it took me a while to realize you need RAID driver before WinXP can see the devices. To me, RAID is a thing for servers. What it is doing on the same board as a 7.1 stero, I could not guess.

Anyway, it’s a fast machine, unlike my connection.

At home I’m on a 56K now. While it is almost bearable, I have been missing my 3Mbps back in Singapore a lot. (Looking at the wireless router, which I brought with me, only makes it worse :S )

I’m looking at the ADSL from CSLoxinfo and TRUE. I think it will be either one of these, and it will be another 2 weeks before I get them. Grrr. I can still write when there is energy, but it’s really difficult to keep up with the 146 sites that I use to follow daily.
