You don't know me, but a 150GB hd and maybe a 50gall fish tank will be fine.

I *could* use a new socket-A motherboard , since the one in my second system fried a few weeks ago and money's a pretty tight thing at the moment....(Memory and CPU aren't the problem.)

1. A Matrox Parhelia, 3 1600x1200 monitors, and decent Linux drivers for the Parhelia.
2. Money for a decent synthesizer
3. A top hat.

I'm executing the right to dream, as stated under the J.W. Bill of Rights post .

You know, I'm not bumping for anything this year; more concerned with fulfilling the needs of those in my family with big wishlists.

Day off = great (I am in the hospitalty industry)

Otherwise I'm begging Santa to switch my company to OSS, or at least consider it.


ps, I recently changed jobs, my probation (not prison type) is up on Jan 1, I'd really like to pass that!
