Last night, I successfully took the old, clapped-out DVD drive out of my computer, and replaced it with a new one, which worked perfectly straight away! Rah!

I have never done anything which involved physically opening up my computer and doing stuff inside it before, and while I recognise that on the scale of things, what I did was not actually hard, I was still impressed that I managed to do it without breaking anything.

I was also interested to see just how much of what is inside my computer (it is a 'tower' type PC) is actually empty space. How does it still manage to be so heavy? That's what I want to know. I gave it a bit of a dust-out while I was in there, as it looked like it needed it, but only on plain metal surfaces like the bottom of the case: not anywhere that looked important or delicate.

I shall now at last be able to watch Christopher Lee's 1998 film, Jinnah, which I bought on DVD about 4 months ago, and haven't been able to see yet. He reckons it's his 'most important' film to date, so it should definitely be seen. I might just watch it tonight, in fact... It is a toss-up between that and another episode of Gormenghast on video: but either way, I get Christopher Lee ActionTM - yay!
