You're all the same.

Going to keep my current 1tb hard drive and GTX 460. Hopefully upgrading the video card to one of the new mid-range Keplers whenever they come out.
Nice looking tower, the best ones run on cats.
Dropped some stuff off and got some books at the local thrift.
There was a small lot of electronics books from about 1940-1945. They tell an interesting story. The owner was Ozell Weeks and he attended the Alabama School of Trades in Gadsden Alabama. It was the first state owned tech school in the south.
In one book he uses a picture of a sorority president, Miss Nelda Jean Hollis from Brenau College, Gainesville. Ga. (she is from my room mate's home town and the daughter of the doctor at the time)
More interesting, in a book on reading circuit diagrams, you find this in his hand writing:
This poem is from 1933, the Civilian Conservation Corps at Fort Benning, GeorgiaRoosevelt's my shepherd; I shall not want;
He maketh me lie down on straw mattresses; He leadeth me inside a mess hall;
He restoreth me to a job.
He leadeth me in the paths of reforestation For his country's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of The shadow of poison oak and ivy
I will fear no evil, for he art with me.
He prepareth a saw and an axe before me in the Presence of my commanding officer.
He annointest my mind with discipline.
My shoes runneth over from marching.
Surely beans and employment will follow me All the days of the Roosevelt administration
And I shall dwell in a tent forever.
EDIT: The girl was born in 1925
There is a report card in one book from june 30, 1946. If he was born about the same time as the girl, they'd both been about 21.

The SOA breaks us and rebuilds us in its image.
I remain glad that I bailed on the SOA after graduation, despite the fact that I had passed tests. I'm much happier using the same skills and thought processes in a different industry with less morbid subject matter.
