And my toy arrived bright and early this morning. Thankfully my dog likes to bark at the doorbell or I wouldn’t have heard the courier, but I did and I now have a fancy new toy. Yay. I’m currently upgrading the software and tweaking it to remove as many traces of Internet Exploder that I possibly can. Firefox all the way baby!
The speed of this thing is glorious. Copying my whole 10GB of songs on my ipod amounted to a whole 5 minutes as opposed to the hour or so it took before. This rocks. Now I am sitting here, getting comfortable with the keyboard layout and downloading all the mail that I’ve received since I last had a functioning computer back in September. Anyone care to take a guess as to how many messages that I have (not including deleted messages and spam)?
No, higher than that. I now have a total of 2887 Messages in my inbox since Sept. Go me!
Anyway. I need to start patching WoW. That will sadly take all afternoon using Blizzard’s useless updater. Oh well. I’m back online. The little things like that don’t bother me at all any more.
So here I sit, hopefully for the last (or at the very least the penultimate) time at this keyboard on this crappy computer waiting desperately for my own new toy to arrive. I keep hoping that it will arrive soon. For the past two days I’ve gone to work hoping that I’d come home and there it would be, exhultant in all it’s glory but have been disappointed both days. Tomorrow perhaps is what I keep telling myself. I hope it’s here before the weekend though so as I can spend time setting things up and then come Monday on my day off, I can actually play on it.
Can you tell I was never any good at Christmas?
Anyway, since I’m bored and trying to amuse (read distract) myself from my lack of computational goodness, I’ve been surfing the web randomly looking for things to amuse and delight.
Tonight I came across this fun little article and accompanying photo that paints an interesting picture about Season 4 of Battlestar Galactica. I guess this means I need to hurry up and finish watching season three. I have one more disk to go and then I’ll be a whole two episodes behind by the time my comp gets here… but thanks the the wonders of modern torrent sites, I’ll be able to catch up on them (and Doctor Who) soon enough.
On that note, I’m off to stumble around the web some more looking for something shiny to distract and amuse me.
G’night for now.
