When I left Time Inc. in 2007, I built a new computer from parts purchased at Over the years, the parts gradually broke: some of my memory was DOA, the video card went bad, the power supply died, and the back fan broke. Finally, a couple of month ago, the last of three hard drives decided to kick the bucket. (This was probably related to the back fan breaking.) I decided to buy a new computer; I’ve very happy I did. The new machine has some pretty great components:

This is a pretty great machine. It takes less than a minute to fire up a web browser from when I turn on the machine, and I haven’t had any real issue at all.

I’ve installed all sorts of developer tools, and I’m looking fun to playing around with new applications at home.
