So, while I was pulling out my broken WD disk drive today, I somehow damaged my SCSI cable (for a different disk). Boy, that wasn't cool. Especially the part where I went to the local computer store and spent too much money on a replacement. They only had like the fanciest SCSI cable you can get, Ultra320, 4 connectors and a terminator. But whatever.
Scott and I also went to Best Buy with the idea that we would pre-order Half-Life 2 there, but it was not to be. The conflicting information we got from the employees said that we could only pre-order by buying one of the pre-order boxes, which did not exist for HL2. Whatever. I got steam and just ordered it that way. Almost done downloading now.
