Even though today is the actual date of my birth on some calendars, for me the celebration was really last night, because yesterday my new iMac G5 and several new software titles arrived.
I couldn’t help but grin incessantly and dance around, in spite of the fact that my apartment was at the time 56° F due to bad thermostat wiring.
To celebrate, I got World of Warcraft installed, downloaded all of the patches, and started playing.
(Note that there is no mention of food, drink, or sleep here.)
Admittedly, that was pretty dumb to do on a weeknight, but that’s what massive substance abuse is for, right?
I am starting a new electronics naming theme: Star Trek Bestiary. My new iMac is named Tribble. Once I do some extraction and backup, my external hard drive will be named Sehlat. When I get a PowerMac tower at some point, it will be named Targ.
There is no Klingon word for “jolly”.
