Cartman's new 512 MB of memory (bring it up to 1GB) is due to arrive tomorrow, and I finally got ahold of a Dell salesperson, so two new 10,000 rpm 18 GB drives are on their way too. The current drives were only 7,200 rpm as it turns out (!). That sucks... can't believe I didn't notice that on the initial order.
Anyway, there's hope.
After that, we need to save up $21,000 for the Alpha. Alan, want to post the Alpha specs for everybody to drool over?
We need to decide the southpark character to name the Alpha after... jesus? pip? chef? Or do we name it cartman and change cartman's name?
