Cool. I'm downloading that now. Dial-up, should take about 15 minutes for a 3MB file. Man, I need broadband. Hopefully this week or next week. Can't wait.

I never knew you can monitor the hard drive temp. Should be interesting to see what I'm getting on my SATA. I've got like HD cooler plus two front system fans blowing across it. It should be pretty cool.
