So far, I’ve made it a full four days without buying a Macbook. I consider this to be quite the accomplishment. And I’ve already decided not to get the black one.
The thing is, when you look at the specs, the only upgrade between the good white one and the black one is 20 Gigs of drive. Even at 2.5″ drive prices, you’re looking at a solid $180 worth of black.
And I remain vigilant. I just can’t justify buying another computer. The ones I have work fine!
I have decided that I will wait a few weeks and see if I can get one refurbished for a bit less. And if I can’t, I’ll just buy one anyway. That’ll show ‘em.

That’s it computer. You did not just disconnect me right when I was going to win. This is the last straw.
I will hurt you. I will make all your electrodes cry out with the pain of a million volts. You don’t want to know what I can do to you, computer.
I will put cheese in your floppy drive, bologna in your cd drive, and will fill your I/O ports with ketchup. I will set your power supply on fire and then pour thermal grease on you. Conductive.
If you do not return my connection, I will take you out into a field and increase your airflow with a shotgun. I will remove your processor, and pull each pin off with plyers as I listen to your motors whimper. It will be bad, computer. It will be very bad.
At night, when you slumber, I shall creep stealthily up to your monitor, smash it in with a hammer, and dance gleefully, wearing a headdress made from your shredded IDE cables.
There are limits, computer. And I am up to here with you. ::Holds hand up::

For reasons beyond understanding, my blog was having some issues this past week. I suspect severe depression brought on by lonliness.

Go, this instant, and get Opera or Mozilla, or some other good browser. Do not give in to the evil that is Internet Explorer. Experience tabbed browsing, mouse gestures, and a complete lack of pop-ups. It shall be as though you were blinded but can now see. You once were shackled, but now move free.
For another good reason why you should not use IE, go here.

I had all these plans for tonight. Really I did.
Most of them involved sitting down with Kevin and banging out the rough draft of our Programming Languages final project spec for about an hour after Sci-Fi class, and then maybe watching a movie, having a glass of wine, enjoying the company of the fairer sex…
Any of those would have been quite nice, really. But, no.
Well, we’re done, now. At least, we’re done if you count stopping in the middle of the control flow section and stating “The rest of the features are relatively self-explanatory” in about as believable a manner as those guys on tv who say things like “Satisfaction guaranteed” as “done.”
ugh. I’m going to go crawl into bed and slam my head against the wall until I lose consciousness.

I just managed to delete the huge post I wrote. It’ll have to wait until tomorrow, because I’m clearly too tired to be doing this now.

So, for some reason, the spell checker for Outlook identifies “weblog” as a word that it doesn’t know, but has no problem with “blog”. Just thought you’d all like to know.
