That friday feeling

Yesterday afternoon at about 15:45 (for those not in the know, that's when my working week finally comes to an end) I found myself wishing that my life could be a musical. Now, I'm not thinking that someone should make a musical of my life, because to be fair, that would be pretty dull, maybe apart from the poledancing bits...

No, what I mean when I say musical, is that I wish that songs would randomly play when I'm doing certain things. This friday I found myself walking down a corridor at work, on my way out of the building. The song I had stuck in my head was The Nolans, I'm in the Mood for Dancing. I couldn't help but think how cool it would be if people would start popping out of their offices to sing "do do do do do de de do do"

Well, share that friday feeling with me (despite it being Saturday) and have a listen to the song!

By the by, I'm hoping to get a new computer (not that there's anything wrong with my old one apart from it running Windows 98) but I'd like a new computer. Can anyone who knows a bit about computers recommend something? I've been looking at, and I'm looking for something with 1gb of RAM, at least a 160 gb hard drive, costing around 500 quid give or take a few pounds. I've seen a few and can't make up my mind between them. Also I haven't a clue if I should get Vista or not, because I remember all the security flaws that were discovered when XP first went live. Help!

I wish I had a soundtrack to my life as well, like happy music playing just when I'm walking down the street or something lol

As far as what PC would be suitable, that all depends on what you want to do with it. Pretty much all PCs around the £500 mark will be more than adequate for watching DVDs, photo editing, and keeping the Cherry Cola Café up to date.

I think you're right to focus on memory and hard disk capacity as priorities. The only real reason you'd want more processing power - in my view - is if you were playing modern games.

As for Vista, I would hold off from that for the time being, unless it comes with your new PC. You'd find that some older hardware might not work with it, if the appropriate drivers haven't yet been written.

Anyway, hope that helps a little. Let me know if you need me to elaborate!
