I have just recieved a windfall insurance cheque (£1600) That storm a couple of weeks ago, Now the Dragon knows nowt about this. I am about to go on a spending spree. and i`m really stuck at WOT 2 BUY. I have a few ideas (i love electronic gizzmos of any kind) (i think its an illness with me) at the mo i`m building a
Dual xeon pc (it`ll help my Brute-Forceing), but should i go for a Quad setup (£1400) just for the mobo,Or should i upgrade me Sat. Ive heard of thr dreambox, Gregorian dishs(is a 1.2 gregorian
muchas better than a 1.2 C master,Should i update me Strong 4375, Should i buy a Phillips DVD recorder,
IF YOU HAD £1600 TO SPEND WITH NO MOANING what would you buy,
Or should i just PISS IT UP THE WALL (like useual.) DAVE.

You wont believe how this came about Big R.
The dragons been NAGGING at me for 5 years to fix the kitchen roof. (being a builder) you do jackshit on yer own house. Well i finally relented four weeks ago, Refelted flat roof, slated about
3 sq metres of main roof and repointed ridge-tiles. When the winds hit i had a idea MAKE THEM PAY (Ive had insurance for18 years and only claimed once before) and that was a lightning hit kept it on the qt from her .Phoned insurance
they said get work done, I then phoned to say completed, They arranged to visit last tuesday at 2.30 (when dragons at keep FAT)
The insurance dude even commented on the shit (building rubble)
left on site, I phoned a mate to clear while he was still there. He asked my mate to go on their list of Good contractors. and now 8 days later a big cheque hit my mat. Kamakazi (devine winds)
I belive, I belive, I belive. DAVE.

As you mentioned the new TV series Dave, I though it might be good, but it isn't really holding my attention, perhaps I'm looking for too much out of a Sci Fi series. I still maintain that Babylon 5 was one of the best, it had a running storyline, but each episode stood up on it's own.....Just my opinion, but I really enjoyed it, even on the third time of watching.

To answer your original question though, upgrading the PC is always good, anything to do with satellite reception can be technically challenging, so the world is your oyster. :)
