Feeling Old (Tech)

Well I was considering getting Elderscolls Oblivion given that the forums is gushing about it, but then I checked the minimum specs. Wow, my computer's not even close. I guess I haven't been keeping up with computer tech recently, because I didn't even know that computers existed at the recommended spec level. It's scary how fast the processing power curves have climbed in the last year or so. I should have guessed that it was around time for me to upgrade when WOW filled up most of my hard drive when I installed it. Anyway, the point is that I need to upgrade, but that's not going to happen until after I get a job, because I can't justify to myself spending that much money before then.

I can't even remember how old this computer is. I do remember I updated the video card.. come to think of it, I think that might have been for the last Morrowwind game. It's at least as old as 2003.

My precious:
Dell Dimension 8100
Current Specs:
Pentium 4 1.3 GHZ 512MB Ram
Nvidia Gforce4 Ti 4800 SE
Windows Xp
CD-Rom DVD player (Ha! at least this hasn't advanced too much.)

    New Year, same stuff going on. Looking forward to warmer weather, but it was nice around Christmas time here. Everytime I see a snowstorm somewhere…

    I had a good time at the Distant Worlds Final Fantasy symphony concert last night at Jones Hall. Forgot my phone at home so I don't have any…
