A Year of Starcraft II
Almost There… But Not Quite
As I opened the multiple boxes of computer parts, my plan to blog and take pictures as I worked flew out the window. A kind of frenzied “Fuck it, we’ll do it live,” feeling overtook me and I dove in. I’m glad I didn’t document the build; it was not a pretty sight. (I may put up one picture tomorrow, just to show the horrible cable management. Seriously horrible.)
Building the computer was a lot more difficult than I remembered. Two and a half hours of placing a part, unsure googling to make sure I was doing it right, and reading through three different manuals and I thought I was done. I only needed to connect an old DVD drive from the last computer I built. Yeah, well… I wish I would’ve known that newer motherboards don’t come with that particular connection anymore. I laughed, I thought about throwing stuff, then I just went to fucking Walmart for the drive.
Now I’m sitting here waiting for Windows to install, hoping everything works right and I can play some Starcraft II today. I think I’ve got a long night ahead of me.
