I noticed I finished some of the things on my to-do list.
I got a new BIOS on the decTOP, thus possibly killing it or rendering it fairly useless.
I finished with CCNA2, and am studing for the INTRO which is turning out to be a lot harder than I could have imagined it would be.
The two about the optiplex have been completed, I got a new server with gig-e, and then a few weeks ago got a 500GB HDD for it.
The thing about the valtec is invalid cause I think the mobo is dead.
The bike engine-izing is still under consideration.
