Short version: I need a PCI network card, and would like your recommendations

Long version: I recently built a PC w/ Win7 (after a year or two of randomly accumulating parts when I had some extra cash) and spent a couple of weeks trying to figure out why it was bluescreening randomly. I've narrowed it down to, I think, the drivers for my onboard network port (ASRock M3A770DE). While I have the latest drivers from the ASRock site, I still get bluescreens related to network drivers.

In frustration (and well I kinda wanted to dick around with it anyway) I installed Ubuntu using their windows installer, and popped it in alongside my windows install. It's been trucking along for ~3 days now so I don't think my hardware is to blame for my windows troubles (before this I wondered about possibly a defective power supply).

Yeah I'm the same way. I don't particularly like being photographed either. It just seems stupid to me, "Hey everybody! Gather around and pose uncomfortably in a way that you would never actually do for any reason! And smile! You're not doing it! We'll stand here all day until you can conjure up a half assed smile!" Man photographs are the worst.

I was there a couple of weeks ago, looking for a particular book. I don't remember what it was now, but I do know they didn't have it! Stupid library.

Neil Gaiman has a lot, I particularly like one called "The Price" which can be found in Smoke and Mirrors. He has other short story collections as well but unfortunately I haven't gotten around to reading them yet.

My usual workday lunch is a turkey or ham sandwich with mayo, sriracha and mustard or as I call them, the Three Condiments I Like on My Sandwiches.

I went to the local walmart to get XCOM at midnight. There were maybe 5-6 others there for some other game that came out that day. Mostly it involved watching the clerk dig through giant and apparently randomly packed boxes trying to find the games.

I always tip 15% + whatever it takes to then get to the next even dollar amount. There's something my brain really enjoys about paying an even dollar amount for something.
