the lancaster

I was greeting with a Christmas stocking plethora of goodies when I checked the mailbox after work today.

The new issue of my bathroom reader had arrived. I also received a couple discs from BBO which are essential for a complete Bustaburger night for Mare and me.

The best item of all was a package I had been waiting for all week. This package contained my newest addition to my computer collection: an AMD Turion 64 ML-37.

These puppies were going for a couple Benjamins when I was first looking into them almost two years ago. My notebook came with a Sempron 2600+ which was almost comparable to my Thunderbird. Both processors ran at 1.6GHz (the T-bird was an OC‘ed 1.4), but the Athlon had a 256kb L2 cache which was twice that of the Sempron.

Now I will be upgrading my notebook with a Turion. This model has a 1MB cache, four times the size of the Thunderbird, eight times the size of the Sempron. I also scored this gem for half the price of what they’re currently selling for. This processor should greatly reduce my wait time when I “shrink” and can be a valuable tool for folding.

This will be the last post I write on this machine before switching out the processors and rebirthing it with a Turion. I hope all goes well.

One more post in these wee hours of the morning will follow. You’ve probably already read it unless you’re reading this now.


Innovations in weight loss have lead to the hoodia patch. Hoodia is known to suppress appetite to keep someone from overindulging. If you’re thinking about losing weight and have been unsuccessful with other diets, then you might want to consider looking into this patch. You won’t have to take any pills or follow any special eating regiments to shed off those unwanted pounds.
