I can has new computter?

This past weekend, after watching me get frustrated with my cranky Pentium II desktop (which randomly decides to not open the DVD-Rom drive, mostly when I'm running more than two things at once), lostsatyr went browsing online for used desktops.

We found a Pentium IV that comes with Win 2K (which is similar enough to 98 that I shouldn't have any problems, and that we can Ghost) for under $200. I'll probably want more memory eventually, but it'll likely run things better than my cantankerous old gel does.

According to the message I got from the site, it's on its way here. So I'm hoping I'll have it up and running by the new year!
