sorta new


That's always a good thing to find on the outside of the box containing your new computer.

I got my new work computer today. Well, new to me. It’s a replacement for the one that stopped working on Monday. It’s awesome. It’s a refurbished 15” PowerBook G4. It’s got 1.5 times the RAM of the old one and 3 times the processor speed. I call it Uncle Shiny. You know, because it's metal. And shiny. And I'm easily impressed.

It’s taken me all day to get set up and I still don’t have any of my old emails or files, but who cares about that stuff when you’ve got refurbished hotness? I mean, it’s not like everyone in the office today has asked me for something I don’t have and can’t get to…

    Funny how the man bag was packed more carefully than the computer.

    Maybe if you can get the hard drive to start smoking you can finagle something new.
