June 6th

Tilly's feet are much better - to the point where we played ball in the garden after work.

I'd ordered a new SSD for my laptop... basically my desktop is slow to boot, and there's a problem where I end up waiting for a pile of stuff to time out before I can get anything done.  So I decided I'd get a bigger, faster drive for my laptop, and move that drive into my desktop as the boot drive.  Anyway, where was I?  Oh, right, my new SSD arrived.  They're always so unimpressive, let's go back to huge disc drives, just so I can tell that 256Gb is a lot.  It didn't take that long to install the new drive (from a USB flash drive), and I copied ~23Gb of Warcraft (SSD via USB 2.0 -> SATA-II -> SSD) in ~13 minutes - pretty impressive :o)

I put the SSD into a 2.5" to 3.5" cages, and then went to install it in my desktop, only to find that I need a different power supply connector.  Doy.
