I was over at dell.com just looking around and decided that I needed one of those XPS desktop computer systems. Well anyway, after going threw the customize feature they have, my system came out to around 4 Grand and I decided to go ahead and buy it since it was no interest financing for 18 months.

Well I came up with the great idea of going down stairs and telling my girlfriend about the purchase. (She is still getting over my TV and Axiom purchase). Needless to say, she pretty much went nuts on me! She made me do the dishes and she went up stairs. (Our computer room is on the second floor.) I heard her talking to someone so I came up stairs to see who it was. She had called Dell and told them that I am a moron and I need to cancel the order!! Anyway, long story short, I need to call first thing in the morning and cancel it when that department of dell opens.

I feel like a beat down puppy!

Say, NEW2 (may I call you New?). If you would like I could walk you through buying the parts for and building a monster PC. It would most likely be faster and certainly cheaper than a Dell. Probably by half. We could even go with a cool aluminum case. PM me if you are interested. No charge of course. I haven't bought a prebuilt, well, ever.

That's a very generous offer! My son likes to do his own builds.

Sure will. Also check out the post by Ray about Monoprice.com. Looks like you can get some quality interconnects for your iPod Nano dirt cheap. Like this.
I bet that would help calm down the ol' lady.

Just get your girlfriend some roses and a nice Christmas gift, and it'll blow over. Believe me, in all my years of marriage, I've done messed up far worse then that before.

NEW - Did my explanation on how to connect the Nano Dock to the receiver make sense?
