Yay! Today I bought myself a 250Gb HD with serial ATA interface and shifted my games and music partitions there...
1. the data rate pwnz that of my old IDE HD out of the window O_o
2. Now I have enough disk space to defragment my data... at last, it was getting uber-fragmented
and I also got myself a wireless/LAN DSL router... now all my comps have internet and I can throw LAN-parties without having to change a thing!
