Slow day

Ho-hum, its my day off of work, and I’m just layin around. I was supposed to get some stuff done today, and I *did* try to do it…. but none of it seemed quite doable.

Went to Wells Fargo to close my account. But it turns out there’s still transactions going through… “shouldn’t close it for another 3-5 days at least” Hmmmph.

Go to Palomar to go shopping for books…. only I’m not sure if I’m actually *in* my english class or not (I’m on the crash list) they were sold out of my CS class’ book, and I couldn’t figure out which Calc book I need. Go to get my Parking Permit… it costs more than I brought with me, and I don’t want to use my debit card cuz that will just prolong the amount of time before I can close the account.

Go to WaMu to open a new account. Hazzah! Managed that one ok. Too bad I can’t put more than $100 in at a time without them putting a 9 day hold on it (but only for the first month).

Then I went and rewarded my… ehh… ‘efforts’ with a Tazzoberry from Starbucks (thank you again, Amber) then I came Home.

So whats left of today? Well, I plan on installing Linux, swapping my CD-burner from my old comp to my new one and putting the CD-ROM in the new one into the old one, and copying all my files, music, etc from the old harddrive to the new one. Although I think the old hard drive is better. See, they’re both 80 gig, but the old one is a Western Digi and the new one is a Maxtor.

I’m partial to Western Digi as it is, but that drive also has a 8 MB on disk cache, as opposed to the Maxtor’s 2 MB. So it should be a bit faster.

So I guess I’ll end up reinstalling everything on the old one, and copying stuff from the new one over.

Not that it was terribly important for me to go into all that detail.
