Weekend is always not long enough...
Sister came up here for the weekend. Her computer was being a bit of pain last week. One of her professors is such a great Microsoft costomer. They have to get and use Office 2010 for the class. (well, I guess that's what that class is anyway...) but still... haha But anyhow, so I had a copy of it. I gave her the key over the web and have her go download the installer off the web. But somehow, her machine was not liking it and kept erroring out. So first I thought it was the pirated version of 2007 was messing with it. lol So I had her got uninstalled it, then try to re-install 2010. But that wasn't the issue neither. So she was stuck without any office to work on. So she brought the computer up during the weekend and I helped her wiping it and re-installed windows and Office 2010. (I am so nice... lol)
We went to have some Pho on Saturday with the twins, grandma and great aunt. Then took the kids and grandma home then we went to buy stuffs for hotpoting. lol Bought so much food once again.... Beef, lamb, tofu, noodle, veggies, mushrooms, fishballs, shrimp... Oh we also bought things to make potstickers for my sister to take back. It was pretty fun though. But of course we didn't end up finishing all the food. So I had to do it again last night. lol Not complaining though. I love hotpoting also. But it just fat.... Gained like 2 lbs.... 1 week of no food ahead of me. (I can do it!!)
Finally today, they are going to start fixing the water leaking/flooding issue in the living room. Hopefully it won't take too long. They are going to break the floor and install some pipes there and let the water run out to the yard or something. So I think when I go home today, half of my living room floor is going to be destroyed... (well maybe not half, but still a bit...)
Oh yeah, one of another most exciting things that I did last week was that I finally ordered a new laptop. lol Maybe not very very exciting, since it cost me 800 bucks. (Thanks to Diana!! That she will sign it off for me, and that saved me like 80 bucks almost of tax hehe) Just have to go down to Oregon to pick it up when it's ready. Hopefully soon. Right now, I think the estimate time is 2/16/11. Hope it will be done sometime next month, cause I have to go back home sometime in Feb. So it would be great that I can pick it up on the way or something. It will save me a trip. haha Here's the config for the machine. It's not too bad I think. Lenovo is pretty nice also, they let me upgraded my RAM for free. Previously, I ordered mine like the day before they have the free RAM upgrade available. It was suppose to be 2-DIMM of 8500DDR3. So I called them the next day, and see if I can still get the upgrade or if I have re-submit a new order. (it's pretty crazy too, they like have no option for you to cancel your order online lol.) So now I have 1-DIMM 10600DDR3!!! Meaning I would only have to get one extra DIMM if I want to make it 8GB!!!! hehehe
