Unpack, Install, Run.

So. The new computer, yes. Very well appointed, but still essentially a cold, drafty weird new place to move around in. This process is like the data equivalent of moving across town without a car, I guess. It's amazing how nested I get with my machines. I make them cozy, I fuck them up, I decorate, deface and customize. This machine works well with my abuses. I named it after poop, to give it a complex.

So really, since yesterday evening, this is almost all I've done, screwing around with my new fast shiny toy. One nice thing is I can play DVDs on my computer now, and I have been watching Everybody's Famous, this Dutch film, and the actor playing the father reminds me of my dad in a good, comfortable way. The film is really charming.

I feel a little more depressed than usual lately. I'm not sure why, I guess I just feel a bit directionless and overwhelmed. I've been thinking too much, oddly nostalgic, and really kind of melancholy. I'm pulling away from people, even Joel. At least I'm aware of it, huh?

One good thing i've been doing is doodling a lot.

Oh, you said DOODLING
I read that as "drooling". Which didn't make a lot of sense. I should go back to bed.

Pulling out? Isn't that a good thing?



Okay. I'm a jerk.

Yes, drooling is a very good thing.

That's what I love best about you, you're so wise and kind and brave and thrifty.

You'd better believe that I am! I'm so underappreciated.

Here's a little newsbit for you:
"A Cambridge University (England) study showed that mice given methamphetamines and subjected to loud dance music keeled over and died."

New PC. Is pretty fast and stuff. Lots of drive space for my huge collection of hardcore geriatric diaper fetish porn.

All that XP crap is gonna make you go blind.
You're fiddlin' around in Window$ XP : Home edition, ne? Anything to report? I'd be interested to nose around in it, see how it's been made different, but in no way would I install it. I'll just nose around vicariously through your XPeriences. How about that?

Re: All that XP crap is gonna make you go blind.
Yeah don't for god's sake install it yourself. It's not as horrible as I thought it would be, it has some nice featurebugs and seems to be fairly reasonable, but I could always wipe it and install something else.

Haw haw XPeriences haw.

Ewww, XP? I hope not.
Ahh yes the pr0n collection. I'm convinced that fully half the computers in the world have some form of pr0n collection on them, even if it's just a personal desktop background of the owner's spouse from halloween.

Re: KAPWEEENG
I'm merely providing sound advice. Free of charge, to boot.

Honestly, though, if XP works out for you, then that's excellent -- use whatever works best for you. Like you've mentioned, you can always dump OS and install something else anytime if XP annoys you.

You could always dual-boot it, too, and partition up some HOT! LINUX! ACTION!
