Ordered my new system...

Woot, I got enough grad cash to upgrade my system! With my failing psu right now it's pretty much only good for web browsing, anything that loads the system makes it unstable. Here's what I'm getting: AMD Phenom II x3 720 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103649&nm_mc=TEMC-RMA...

Yup, think back to first year chemistry. Gases have low solubility in water, raising the temperature of the water increases the kinetic energy and the gas escapes from solution.

My girlfriend bought the husky, Buno is "our" dog. I think Tilly was around $400 from a breeder. Huskies are a handful though, if you don't exercise them they will spend their energy tearing up your house.

55-60 for strat is good. If you just want to grind it out in the most efficient way and not do full runs, this is what I found works best. http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t268/alexwakelin/StratholmeWithShops.jpg When I was grinding runecloth for rep, this is the route I would run.

One week to go...

And I will be a college graduate! I'll finally be getting my A.S. degree, but I still have a long way to go. I'll be transferring to the University of Arizona in the fall to work towards a B.S. in optical engineering. Just felt like sharing :D

I'll see if my current psu can hold out for another month or two. I'm this close to pulling the trigger on a new rig. My federal work study runs out next week, I just need to know I will have a job this summer before I spend the money.
