I finally got wi-fi in my room. You might be wondering how I managed that with a broken computer. Well I'll tell you. First, I borrowed a TV/monitor from a guy I work with. Second, I borrowed a VGA cable from a guy who lives in the room next door. Then, I hooked it all up to my broken computer, and voila, I have a functional computer again. For now at least.
My quest for a new computer has been both fruitful and expensive. I'm still not entirely sure if I want to build it myself or just buy a custom computer. I imagine that building it myself would be slightly more cost effective, but is it worth the hassle of trying to put together a computer on my own? If you have any opinions on the subject, please make them known in the comments section.
In other news, I should be going home soon. I'm currently looking at my housing options, and hopefully I'll find a nice place for me and my wife. I'm not looking forward to jumping right back into regular work when I get back, but at least it's better than being in Afghanistan.
