workBLOGS . plant and hard disk
Last Saturday, after two consecutive days of another batch of client visits, I found myself in a crowded mall with a three feet plant in my right hand. While others are carrying their shopping bags, new shirts, shoes or whatever thing they have decided to waste their money on, I was carrying a plant.
The feeling is weird and surreal that not even Tim Burton taking a hallucination steroid can portray it.
Anyway, the plant's not mine though I don't mind owning it after carrying it in that mall. I made a different purchase that day, which includes a brand new spankin' 80GB 7200 Seagate hard disk and one 128MB DDRAM which I am currently using in this PC.
I have moved my old WindowsME into the primary slave slot and installed WindowsXP on this new drive. While others might cringe and scream when they hear the word WindowsME, I on the other hand have only good things to say about it. It has been with me for almost two years and 20+ database projects. So it stays there as a primary slave disk so that I can simply switch drive slots in case, God forbid, something goes wrong with this WindowsXP of mine.
I haven't had a major crash while WindowsME was holding the steering wheel. The WindowsXPerience so far has been good though. Hope it remains that way until Microsoft releases the second service pack for Longhorn.
