Boys and their toys

Gloria Lee


Some time last week, Jaden's computer crashed after many years of abuse (given the way he uses his com, I was surprised it even managed to last so long). After tinkering with it over the weekend, he found that the problem was a faulty graphic card so things were back to normal. But he figured it was as good a time as any to get a new one. So he did. He bought all the parts and managed to fix everything up by 2a.m. on Tuesday. But for one thing - the new computer did not have a CD drive. J had originally wanted to salvage the CD drive from his old computer, but realized only at the last minute that said CD drive was much too old to be compatible with any computer model.

He then proceeded to do the most (il)logical thing anyone in his position could have done. At 3.30 in the morning, he went hunting for a new CD drive all the way to the Challenger store at Funan IT Mall (which is open 24 hours, god only knows why since the store was cold and empty when we got there). I don't know why he couldn't have waited a few more hours like any sane person would have.

That's J above holding his old computer while looking ridiculously happy. Sigh, boys and their toys.
