So I built a new system that is designed to be my gaming rig but decided to go with Windows 8.1. Hey, got a copy for free from my TechNet Subscription (which, sadly, will be …

So what did I missed?

I haven’t updated in awhile, with good reasons too.

For starters, I’ve did a career change. What kind of career change? you might ask, well… let’s just say that I’m no longer being paid junk change for doing tones of work in a mortgage company.

OK, so your not working in mortgage, what are you doing then?
Very good question, I now work in a call center doing tech support on the 2Wire HomePortal DSL modem. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Go to 2wire.com and take a look around.

And how this is different from working in mortgage is the fact that I’m actually having fun 80% of the time (compare to the 10% of the time when I was working in mortgage). Plus got to love those ER (Early Release) when you get approved =)

Another thing about this new job is that you are pretty much required to have a Yahoo ID and Trillian installed so you could chat with your team members and what not. Which is pretty cool because you can also chat with whoever you want to chat with while working (just as long as it doesn’t distract you from doing your job).

Other reasons for not updating my journal includes just started playing Xenosaga again (this time I will beat the game so I can start playing Xenosaga ep II then ep III soon after that!). Anime watching plays in part of that fraction as well as being pulled around all over the place with my dad >_>

So what else is new?
1) Formated my 2 XP drives (one of which was set as a System drive which required me to jump through some hoops. One of which required me to unplug those drive and boot to my vista dvd, and hope that auto repair would do it’s thing (which it didn’t). Since it didn’t, I then had to do a fixboot (to fix the boot sector), fixmbr (to fix the Master Boot Record (MBR)), and a rebuild of the BCD (all I know it has something to do with the boot menu or something for Vista) before I was able to boot back to my vista drive and got my other 2 drives free from it’s grips so I could format it).
2) Helped (well… more like “did”) my sister’s boyfriend’s sister in her assignment for one of her classes (which required Visual Basic .NET).
3) New mouse (wireless mouse, laser)
4) An early birthday cake with Garfield clinging to the monitor of a computer
5) Printer drivers for my printer finally came out (I’m so happy =) )
6) Got a 4GB SD Card for my cell phone
7) Getting physic for FAnime 2007!

And I think that’s about it…. anyways… I’m off now, lates.
