Yeah, I've got a computer.

It's getting to that point where some people may have one computer for quite some time. Instead of a Dell Optiplex 755 with 4Gb of RAM and blah...blah...blah.... It's going to be, yeah I've got a computer, right by the DVD player and the toaster.

The new hard drives are now 1.5TB. Next year's processors will have 8 cores, with multi threading, that essentially 16 processors running at 3-4GHz. RAM is also now getting very large and very cheap. You can get 2GB for $50. And that's the good stuff!!!

In two years, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see computers with 5TB hard drives, 32GB of RAM, Intel Core 2 Octo processors with 16 virtual cores, GPUs (video cards for the un-initiated) integrated into the chipset that can compete with the cards out today, and optical storage hitting 200GB per disc.

Heck, if it weren't for Microsoft making completely bloated OS's, I could still be using my dual PII 400 with 768MB of ram for everyday tasks.

With USB 3.0 coming out at 800MB/s, the only things that you will buy for your computer will be everything that connects to it. Displays, storage devices, input devices, etc...

I just can't wait to see what I'll have in two years... 100TB of magnetic storage, 1TB of instant flash memory storage, 128GB of RAM, two 26" OLED displays that are 1/2" thick ...it's gonna rock!!!!

Scooter Dweebs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I yell this out everytime I see one. You know they are the chubby middle aged yuppie fucks with too much money... So they bought a cute scooter! You know, to save the world. Heck they just spent $35k on their Preinus two years ago, why not spend $5k on something that you can only use 3 months out of the year.

What also kills me is these Scooter Dweebs riding on the very edge of the bicycle lane. You know because you can't fit an 18" wide scooter on a 3' wide bike lane... WTF? I just want to run these fucking idiots off the road.

I'm sure that these are the same people that give me dirty looks for having an old american car with no hub caps. Screw you! My car cost $800, weighs less than your Prenius, and it gets 35mpg. It looks better too. You can buy a whole lotta gas with $39,200.

I just can't stand all of these green hippie douchebags that want to tell me how to live my life.

Save the world. Drive a shitbox!

My next project car will be a turbocharged 383 Astro minivan that puts down 800HP....and gets about 12mpg. Suck it hippies. I'll make my own friggin gas.

...one more rant down...4.375 million to go....
