Sometimes you can be lucky

Yeah, sometimes you can get lucky. Like I did today. I met with an old friend who gave me his old Xbox 360. Well, I gave him 100SEK for it, but that was mostly so he didn’t give it away totally free. Love that friend! Its an older machine but with an HDMI-port and he never played anymore. So better it comes to some use, just hoping it wont die on me… Well now I’m finally going to play Tales of Vesperia!!
I was going to play it all day today, but got interrupted by two friends, Elden and Stingdragon that came and visit me. That was a nice surprise. They brought gifts! Well some cookies but still, it was very nice. Don’t get visitors all that often.

And I don’t have to work tomorrow! I’m going in for an educational purpose, they are going to check what we know and what we can. Will do this on Friday too, so it will be a pretty good relaxing end to the week. And they’ll treat us to breakfast and lunch! Amazing, didn’t think they would ever do that. Now give me a paying job instead…
Well have a meeting my my contact at ”Arbetsförmedlingen” on Tuesday, so I wonder is she has anymore info for me. Hopefully I can at least work there and earn money under the summer, I could at least pay of some debts…

Yum, yum cookies from friends New Xbox 360

About my computer…

As I posted earlier my computer was starting to freak out on me again. So tired of this piece of shit. Well anyway my father got it running again without it turning itself of. Apparently there where massive glitches in the hard-drive, you could just touch it a tiny bit and it would die. So he replaced it with some old one he had lying around. The problem with this one is that its very slow. It takes time to copy something to the computer or copy to it. So I’m wondering, where can I find a new one cheap online? Since my computer is a bit older I can only have IDE 3,5 hard-drives.
So does anyone know of a Swedish online store that sells them cheap? I don’t care about the size of the HDD, I just need a new and cheap HDD.

I will build a new computer in the future, but that is when I have the cash to do so. And that’s way into the future for my part. so I have to make use of what I’ve got until then. Unless I can get something for my birthday in October, well that’s still all in the distant future. For now I would be very grateful if I could find a cheap new HDD. Thanks, hope I’ll get some answers for this question. Would greatly appreciate it.

EDIT: Apparently its not only the old hard-drive that was broken. Today I started to have the same troubles with the the replacement HDD I’m using. I’m starting to think the motherbord is giving up. Piece of junk! Well people can ignore this post then, since getting a brand new HDD won’t make it better… Guess I’ve got to try and save up on some cash to get a new computer. *sigh*
