Archos is in, more RAM, Henry David Thoreau

Arrr arrr arrr arrr… more power! I just added another 128mb of SDRAM to the box of circuits, bringing me to 655mb of RAM. I just got back from Discount Electronics where I purchased a 2-port USB 2.0 PCI card. I think they’ll be seeing a lot of me in there. I bought the USB 2.0 card for the Archos which came in today. A lot of geeking out will be going on this evening… so can’t write long. The RAM came with the Archos in the auction that I won. Windows XP took the PCI card like nothing ever changed. I even put the Intellimouse on the USB. I can’t wait to see how quickly I can transfer MP3s to the jukebox.

Elise and I started reading Thoreau’s Walden to each other last night. My high school English/Latin teacher would be proud. He probably wouldn’t be impressed with how stupid I sound while reading aloud. It’s been a while since I’ve read classic literature. We’re only on page 42 right now, but have already found words by which to live, and I will leave you with just that:

“In any weather, at any hour of the day or night, I have been anxious to improve the nick of time, and notch it on my stick too; to stand on the meeting of two eternities, the past and the future, which is precisely the present moment; to toe that line.”

Okay, back to being a geek now.*

* Like quoting Thoreau and talking all that 2-port USB 2.0 PCI crap wasn’t geeky enough.
