The problem is his room gets really cold unless the door is open. Sure, our house is childproof, but I don't want him having free reign over everything while we are sleeping and unaware, so we have to gate him into his room every evening. My son is a great sleeper. He goes down around 7:30pm every evening and sleeps until at least 8am. The thing was, when he wakes up (whether it be in the middle of the night, or earlier than normal), we give him 5-10 minutes to put himself back to sleep. The best was in the morning, he'd play in his crib, and sometimes go back to sleep. But now he can go get toys (or pull out all his clothes from his drawers) at 8am. And he's a climber, so he'll slip off his new bed (not far from the floor, but *THUD* followed by a scream is enough for me to pop out of bed to see what happened). Anywho, I've been waking up a lot earlier than normal now...
In other news, I finally got a video card (ATI 9600XT, thanks everyone that gave me input, especially subgeek). So the final stats are:
Dell PowerEdge 400SC (Intel P-4 Processor at 2.4GHz (w/HyperThreading), 512KB Cache, 800MHz FSB).
1.0GB Memory (PC3200 I think? Its the 800MHz type).
ATI 9600XT 128MB 8xAGP card
40GB HD (although, I may be getting a 120GB here, soon)
on board sound & NIC.
And I'm spying a nice viewsonic 19"CRT (now that LCD's are big, CRTs are dirt cheap! The only LCD cheaper than the 19" viewsonic is a 15" LCD).
Has anyone else noticed that "My Yahoo" has been slow as molasses since yesterday??
