Had to spend "new bike money" on a new computer. *sad face*

My computer crapped out so i had to buy a new one. i sit here looking at my uber-sweet 19" widescreen LCD, thinking how much porn, oops, i mean bicycle pictures i can store with 320G of harddrive space, but i really wanted a Fuji Touring and this will set that dream back at least a few months.

*sad face*

i'll get that bike eventually.

I agree, you have your priorities all mixed up! I used to spend lots of money on my computer, but now I've decided not to spend another cent on computers, even if mine blows up or something...

me too. these days, i won't spend another dime unless it pays for itself with photography proceeds. line of thinking being ... promote the side business, so you can buy more computer stuff! (and lights. and studio equip. and lenses.)

If a computer like that only sets you back for the Fuji by a few months, I think you'll be fine.
