|OMG! It's moving!

In a major turn of events from Saturday, Xatrox towers was a hive of activity today.|
We've upgraded the RAM in our machines, and I found out why my new(made from old spare parts - but still new to me) computer was failing to boot.
The SATA cables are rubbish! the connector is flimsy, and the cable is rigid. Any movement on the cable will move the connector, and if it doesn't break you will at least get an intermittent connection.
I've made my first electric circuit with the breadboard and parts that arrived last week, and my laptop that was really laggy in work (swapping between windows would cause the GUI items to be drawn one at a time!), have totally failed to surface on our network at home.
We've done lots of tidying up - and now I'm really tired. I even took pictures of our progress with the computers and electric circuits, but I'm too tired to post them now. Hopefully I'll have the spoons to do it tomorrow night.
