Vengence was on my mind. All those hubbies who failed to please their wives on Valentine’s Day probably had to suffer the same fate. I became spiteful and vengeful and plot a way to get back at him.
No cooking for two days. No house-keeping and left my toddler sleep standing. I warned the dear old atm that I am going to let his precious kids twitching on the floor due to starvation too. And I got what I wanted. Clever arm twisting ya? Come, come,come to 5xmom for lessons on how to milk the men. *muahahaha*
Tadaaa….my computer has been upgraded to 512MB RAM and added an additional 80GB HDD space. Woohoo, now I can store every rubbish in my computer. I can take macro photos of my old, ancient photos. Anyone wants to send me porn, shoot. (hahaha, just joking ok?) Loading back all my computer games. No time for blogging liao.
After spending about RM400+, atm came back with two things from the shop. One, just insert in and my computer RAM is increased to 512MB. But the HDD needed to be partitioned and reformat or whatever blah. My Dell/Window XP doesn’t recognise the Western Digital HDD.
Frustrated and impatient (shop closed already), I posted a question in a forum. Got what I wanted to know. Fumble, fumble, fumble. Still not working. Along came Jason who has the same computer like mine. He is working part-time as technician or something. And he got this auntie very determined to DIY, even if it means killing my C drive.
Because he told me how the technicians in computer shops normally curse their clients behind the scenes. Things like, “PKM, so simple thing also dunno how to do. MCB, like that also must bring to us. KNN, so stupid people also got.” Wah….this got auntie’s blood curdling. How can mannnn…now way mannnnn…I am going to do it myself or die trying. No blardy technician is going to get a chance to curse this cool, IT savvy mom.
There goes our Yahoo IM ping-pong till 4am in the morning. I did not go beyond reinstallation for the partitioning because my original Windows XP Home Edition will not run as my computer said the programme I am currently using is a newer version than the CD. (I had installed Service Pack 2, I suppose?) But all is not lost. I can claim that I have tried.
Finally, my reliable atm brought the HDD to the shop and now…I have drive A, C, D, E, F – Z (card reader). Woohoo…so damn the kembang marn.
But errr…not many people believe auntie knows much about computer, still. My reliable computer guy, Paul still thinks I am blur like sotong. *sigh, making mental note to change web host liao, muahahaha*

Oh yes, have I boasted that I personally plug in my computer myself with my own bare hands? Dell delivered the computer to my doorstep 2 years ago and I put it up. Clever hor? Someone please ask if Dell wants to market their computers to housewives? Huge market, dey. And I am still modelling material mah. Baru-baru ini L’oreal used me as one of their 8 Women of Excellence (must blog this someday).
