A Wombat Type Of Thanksgiving

Again, this week I will be on "light blogging mode." I just bought a new winter wetsuit, upgraded my computer (coming Wednesday) and basically, will be taking it easy trading.

I look forward to getting back to full-time blogging mode a week from today. Expect a couple of posts this week, but nothing more.

Hope all is going well for you out there. Thanks for your patience as I "chill out."

what u buy?

Wetsuit wise? I bought a 5/4/3 Xcel Infiniti Series.

Computer wise I bought a Dell Inspiron with a Duo Processor (2.33GHz) and a 4MB cache. It also has 4gigs of memory.

I think the hybrid market (with probably 50x the quote changes) has really stretched my current system (single processor, 1 gig memory 5 years old)... whenever I pull up a chart on a heavily traded, volatile stock (RIMM, AAPL, etc) my system slows noticably.

Glad to hear you will be back full time soon. I was afraid you might pull a NYSE Scalper on us.

Enjoy your free time and your new purchases. Keep practicing your pranayama. :)

I'm looking to upgrade my CPU next year too. Contemplating what size monitors I should get. If I should get two 21's, a 24 inch, or a quad monitor setup. I think two 21's will work fine. My CPU is 5 years old too, so it's time for an upgrade.

What's the deal with your blogs new description?

As for the description, I dunno... just messing around I guess.

Hope all is well,

Looking to upgrade my computer as well. Did you go with window's vista or windows xp pro? I am thinking of getting vista but there's still a lot of compatibility issues out there.

How much did you spend on your dell? You add any extra video cards for multiple monitors?
