I have tried to be a good boy, Bill

Since I want the option of telecommuting to work, I needed a genuine copy of Windows XP, SP2. I could have put this off for a long time, but there's a LAN party tomorrow with some coworkers that I would like to go to, and I can't get Unreal 2004 working on the Linux machine, so that sold me yesterday.

I am dumber than shit.

Not only did I buy Windows XP expecting an install that might actually work without moving heaven and fucking earth, I also bought a video card to replace the Radeon 7k I've been using since it was new. When I got home, I found out I had grabbed the PCI version.

Repeat: I am dumber than shit.

I'm probably not going to the LAN party at this point, which is a shame, since I would like to socialize with the people I work with outside of the test equipment room. But the new computer is hosed to hell and back, the old computer won't play the game, and I have a video card that makes me want to cry for not reading it more closely to see the letters "PCI" on it.

Damn, what a night it's been. I'm going to bed.

PS - The upside to this is that I have vacation for all of next week, and I will be in the Twin Cities for all of it. Any recommendations on things that should happen, let me know.
