Hey everyone. I've got a ton of stuff to do today but I had to take a quick break to tell you all about a really neat toy I just had delivered via UPS this morning. For some crazy reason I kept thinking I'd ordered another hard drive, but I was wrong. I must have been looking but not buying but it was stuck in my head for whatever reason. So anyway, what I actually bought, (and wanted), was an external sound card. The advantage, of course, is that if a computer doesn't have a sound card, or if the card isn't easily accessible as with some of the businesses I've gone into from time to time, you can connect this and have sound. You do need to have speakers, but even a little portable set is better than nothing. The really cool thing about this though is that it looks just like a jump drive. The only real difference is that there's a light on the top of it, and a jack on one end for the speakers. I connected it to my computer just to see what would happen, and got sound. It's really cool! I can totally see some places where this will come in handy. And, I'm really curious to know if it'll let me watch DVDs on my laptop. As many of you may remember, that's been difficult because the sound comes in and out when a DVD is playing. So, if all goes well, I might actually be able to use my DVD player on trips!

Anyway, I really should get back to work, but I wanted to write about this really quick. If people are interested, I can look up the information on this thing. It's on my other computer or I'd look it up now. Later. Oh, and no, despite what I was saying last night to some people, I'm not actually reading HP on work time today. They've got me doing tons of stuff so I guess Harry will have to wait until tonight.

    Well my subject line says it all. I've been with LJ for several years, and most of that time has been as a permanent member. Sadly, over the last…

  • Trivia for Thursday

    I did not like these questions today! So, the fact that I got my second 10/10 of the week was definitely a nice surprise. Here are the questions.
