Consoling myself for the socialist victory by purchasing a new computer. Pssst... don't tell the wife.
The last time I updated computers for my wife and I, we went from very old computers to slightly old computers. This one is a little closer to being 'not' obsolete. It comes with Windows-7, not the new Win8 phone/tablet touchscreen icons hype.
"We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions." -Reagan
The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples' money.
