So now that you have a new friend, what will you name it? : )
A couple of days ago one of my old friends sent me a care package. I had told him about the fire a few months ago, and I figured he was going to send some replacement books and/or CDs and/or DVDs since we both have the same tastes in entertainment.
He sent me a laptop. A good, modern laptop, one that can run everything that my late lamented pc could run.
It would be an understatement to say that I was stunned. So after a brief allergy attack (I WASN'T CRYING, DAMMIT), my nerd DNA kicked in and I've been happily configuring and installing ever since. I just hope I remember to sleep and eat occasionally.
