    A few groceries delivered - milk, bread, egg salad, Glucerna, toilet paper. They were out of chocolate chip cookies. :mad:

    Sandwiches for supper tonight - real ones, not that ridiculous vertical thing in the sandwich thread.

    I wouldn't know which bit the CPU fan is.
    It got good reviews from a variety of sources.

    I think that fan is meant to be crooked like that . It would not matter to me as long as it works ;) I once saw Boris made vodka cooled PC (like a true slav xD) - now that was something ! :)

    It is the boxed circular region at the center of the mother board. A second fan vents out the back side in the top left of your picture.

    Glad I held off on getting the other Walking Dead Telltale seasons in the Steam Sale. Instead of paying ~$30 for them, I paid $20 through Humble Bundle and got the rest of the seasons, plus Batman, plus Wolf Among Us, plus Heaven's Vault.

    The browser on my laptop was crashing a lot, Windows often didn't boot up, etc. So I broke down & bought a new laptop. :)
    I spent the morning working to log into my internet. I've spent the last 2-3 hours trying to install Firefox. [pissed]

    :goodjob: Most Cool!

    Got LA Noire and Doom 3 in the final 40 seconds of the Steam Sale.

    I also got The Witcher 3 and Kingdoms and Castles.

    I bought a salt shaker from Amazon.

    bought a blender today, Oster 1200w for $60

    Thought about going with the $30 version w/700w but decided on the xtra power for crushing ice.

    Just used it to make a Margarita, yummy... Cant overdue the booze though, alcohol causes nerve damage and I'm one of the unlucky ones. But drinking my veggies is much easier.
