How much of what you have can you recycle? You can save a lot of money by only upgrading the parts that need replacing. Or, if you're still using a hard disk drive, swap it out for an SSD. That's usually good for an additional year or more.

Upgrading works, except when you need to updrade your mb/ram/cpu like what I need to do. I tried installing win 7 on it and it was horrible, seems (according to the manufacturer the mb tweaks they did, made it compatible to XP and no later (they claim vista,but I ditched Vista for XP due to stability problems. Installing the OS once a week isn't fun).

Replacing the mb/cpu/ram is more expencive than a new.base pc

Sorry, we have more than sufficient right now. But hey, we can offer a special "hybrid" version that includes Cavalier King Charles Spaniel fur in a 50/50 blend.

You have my sincere, heartfelt sympathies. I keep wondering if I can convince my two Maine Coons to let me vacuum them, with one of those "pet grooming" attachments. This time of year, with long-haired anythings--cats like you and I have, dogs like Charlie, or equines, like some of our other MR'ers, man, it's just fuzz-city. One of my big questions is, how the hell does cat hair GET into closed tubes of mascara, anyway????

Now, that was a truly terrifying thought. However, I'm pretty sure it's Storm's coat--a lightweight, fairy-hair silver tabby coat, of intermediate length and utterly insubstantial in heft. It gets EVERYWHERE. IT's odd, because she has the flat, straight coat--very fine and thin--and it comes out if you look at it. I've seen her have one, teeny-weeny hairball in 3+ years. She also doesn't like to be groomed, and due to the airy-fairy coat, she'll get knots and small matts in it, of course.

Zep, the male, on the other hand, is not only built like the stereotypical modern MC--looks like an English Bulldog in cat drag--but has the coat of a Husky, thick and with a heavy undercoat. Doesn't come out at ALL. I comb and comb and comb, and, oh, did I mention, combing?, and he still gets hairballs that look vaguely like Polaris missiles in size. He's an obsessively clean cat--keeps himself uber-tidy, and the consequences of that are GI-normous. He adores being groomed, the big lug, but it seems to make no difference to the deadly missiles that are his hairballs. And yes: I groom him stem-to-stern nightly, smoothly pulling out handfuls of fur; makes not a whit of diff.

I ran around here half-assing it with a Swiffer yesterday, solely in the main living area, and I'm pretty sure I picked up at least one cat's worth of coat. Damned if I know where on earth it all comes from!

Grooming Stella is rather like de-thatching a lawn -- she has so many layers and types of hair. Her white fluffy belly hair sheds year round onto the carpets - I use a 'slicker' brush on it. Her long top coat hairs shed the most in the spring - I use a steel tooth comb to untangle this layer & brush out the tail. The body undercoat hair is a fine dense hair that mats if left alone - after using the comb I then use a Furminator to de-thatch this layer. The 'Scaredy-Cut' scissors are still very effective for her butt & leg feather trims.

It's like grooming a miniature Golden Retriever!

And yes, I too have found cat hair in sealed tubes, bottles, etc. My Swiffers end up with hair clouds larger than my head!

And yesterday Stella gifted me with a hairball the size of a sausage link! She grooms constantly too!
