a digital magpie

Nice to see both you and Shelley poke your heads out of your shells.

I recently went through this when the kid needed a computer to use for school projects. At his school they use Macs. But I resisted the force, and repurposed an old laptop with Knoppix, because I’m the house MIS dept, and the idea of supporting a Mac as well as two flavors of Linux and 3 flavors of Windows was too much to bear.

Wow Aristotle, even my ex-husband never dreamed about me. I’m both flattered and weirded out, at the same time.

(just teasing)

crackle! pop!

“A digital magpie.”

Shelley: a few nights ago I dreamt that you had opened a new weblog (complete with a redirect of the Burningbird feed) and I went there all excited and there was a string of welcome-back comments on your inaugural post just as long as the one on Burningbird’s goodbye post. I really don’t know what this means, particularly as I never remember my dreams – not this one either, but I had a “flashback” when I saw your comment here and realised that the BB feed hasn’t changed and is as quiet as ever since the farewell.

Coincidentally, today is the first day I can claim to use all three operating systems on a (presumably) regular basis. At the moment I’m not sure what my ultimate preference would be, but I know Windows is my time-sink because it’s the only one I play World of Warcraft on. When it isn’t down for maintenance anyway. *fidgets*

I actually blame that game for contributing to the lack of posts here lately but I’ll avoid going into my tenuous reasoning for that. Heh.

Oh, snap!

Only three?

Now take that trio combo and throw in a large selection of confused and angry users, employees, etc. demanding technical solutions for a myriad of problems, some of which you never even imagined could happen on a particular machine or OS.

Yeah, I don’t miss it.

I solved this problem handily by getting my siblings hooked on World of Warcraft. That means that all of the other computers in the house are occupied except for the PowerBook, which I subsequently get real work done on. Works like a charm!
