TEH GAUNTLET!

The Gauntlet has been thrown down at 10:30 P.M. I have just installed a new hard drive for my desktop.

LETS SEE HOW LONG THIS TAKES!

10:47 - After 5 minutes it is finally done with formatting all 320gb.

11:25 - mmm cake. Still installing.

11:57 - Installing the third set of updates. Only 102 total updates.

12:20 - Done installing all updates to Windows. Have not even started installing drivers.

1:46 - Just now done installing drivers and dot.net patches along with most of my downloaded software. I haven't even gotten to installs off of CD's. I think it is becoming apparent why I needed a larger hard drive.

2:10 - Who in their right mind live blogs a windows reinstall?

2:37 - I get a 10 minute time reduction because I started playing with some bubble rap that was in a box.

2:40 - And another couple of minutes... for forum hopping.

3:21 - AH CRAP! The video card isn't rendering visuals right. I still have ALL my cd based software to go................................................................................ :(

3:31 - BED TIME!

UPDATE: Well poo. Looks like I'm needing to do this again. It isn't rendering graphics worth a crap and both screen are VERY noticeable in their color differences. I still can't get the TV tuner to work, main thing there is I installed HOME edition not Media Center Edition... AIEEEEEE!
