Didn't go to the retreat.
I stayed a bit longer at work since it was (surprisingly) busy. Then I ran around picking up the computer parts that I ordered last week. The last shipment came in today so I finally started building it.
I love doing this kind of stuff. It took me a few hours to get everything in -- I was extra careful so nothing would go wrong -- unlike last time, when the CPU got fried. Right now I'm in the midst of formatting the new hard drive and installing Windows XP. Ahh the sweet scent of a fresh new computer.
Next project: Legos.
