i went for a job interview up north. out in the boonies at a camp for juvenile delinquents (i was to be their drill instructor). it was last year, i cant remember the exact name of the town, but it was really small.
i flew into manchester, with like eight feet of snow on the ground.
how are the black flies this summer lol? jesus i was in maine 2 years ago and they almost carried me off...

Get a cool looking hard driver heatsink fan. You can get them for about 10 bucks and some have cool LED fans on top of them to accent your case. I was going to get one even though my hard drive never goes above 40 degree C
