I can’t begin to be able to sum up the trip, but I had fun, even though I was sick, and it was good hanging out with TD again.
He got a sushi roll named after him at his regular sushi joint. I was amused.
Also, I’ve been using it long enough to be able to make the decision to keep it, so I’ll go ahead and announce the newest member of my computer workforce: Squeaker.
The keyboard is taking some getting used to, but I’m slowly learning my way around it without hunting and pecking. The main annoyance is that I keep accidentally hitting “enter” when I mean to hit the apostrophe key. And it’s slightly awkward, so if I don’t hit some keys at the right angle with the correct force, it’s like I never hit them at all.
Anyway, now that I’ve got a small laptop that I can actually take on campus and USE without it taking up a shitload of space in my backpack, I’m selling my old one. Jazz needs a new laptop, because hers is ancient, so she has first dibs. If she doesn’t want it, I’ll let y’all know, so that if someone you know needs a starter laptop with no major problems, I’ll hook you up.
TD spent a shitload of time working on it for me, to get the current operating system up and running, and making sure my wireless card was recognized and working, and I’m pretty damned happy about that.
Best feature: multiple desktops with Ubuntu. WIN.
I’m going to take a nap. I’m beat. Flying is exhausting.
