    Sick


    i tried to be slick and throw a sempron 2200 at my old MSI mobo
    (trying to put a budget system together for my mom)
    it didnt like it
    so she gets the athlon xp and im stuck with the sempron
    so for 49 bucks i went from 2 GHz to 1.5 GHz
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    Did you look for a bios update? And is it too late now anyway?
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    actually, for what i'm doing now...
    i cant tell the difference
    all the games and such went out on the last format
    they'll come back with the AMD64 thats soon to be built

    but she got my other 512 stick of RAM too
    figure if im gonna run a sempron...
    i may as well take advantage of the 333 FSB...
    so the PC2100 had to go
    so for her budget build...
    she gets the 2 GHz and 768 MB RAM...
    i get stuck with 1.5 GHz and 512 MB

    i'm feeling kinda used ATM

    yeah i tried, but...
    it was a compaq OEM setup originally...
    so its a bitch to work with
    the BIOS updates on MSI's site wont do, the revision #s are all goofed
    and i couldnt be bothered looking anywhere else

    plus, like peat said, its mom...
    cant take something back from her
    shes half my size and twice my age but shell still kick my ass
    not to mention its the least i could do for all the shit my parents took from me
