New computer

I've got my new computer assembled and I'm installing software. One glitch: the SATA controller only works right in Windows in IDE emulation mode. The native AHCI drivers cause a STOP 7B as the Windows setup disk is loading drivers. Ah well.

There's a ton and a half of Windows updates to apply. And I'm having to check all of them to make sure none of the nasties slip in. Then I've got to transfer my files and settings over from the old computer, which means figuring out the tool to do that. We'll see how it goes. I don't want to lose my Firefox password database, for instance. The big one will be installing all the EQ2-related tools properly.
