So for the past week, I have been sans computer chez Diana. Talk about a pain. I’m still feeling it, since the change in technology in the past few years means that I am still unable to get my old files off my back up drives or my darling old broken Pantalaimon. They apparently use some totally new kind of firewire cable these days. And I can’t find my old MS Office disks, so I’m on Open Office for word processing now. But I do miss my excel.
(Note to self: never again name a computer after a daimon. It’s too creepy when it breaks.)
We had a good run of it, Pan and I. I’m kinda shocked, though, at how far things have come in the past 3.5 years. My new computer, which is not the fastest or the largest Mac makes by far, has about three times as much memory as my old computer and my old back up drive put together. And it’s way faster. And the keyboard/trackpad are all weird.
Anyway here it is:
Rio and my new MacBook
Sailor Boy and I spent a while brainstorming names for this beauty. Which is how we’ve arrived at the following contest:
Guess the Name of My New Computer!
Winner gets a signed copy of RAMPANT.
(If more than one person guesses the name of my new computer, the first correct guesser wins.)
Have at it!
Updated for HINTS: My last three computers were named: Arthur, Lancelot the Laptop, and Pantalaimon. As I said above, I will never name another computer after a daimon, so Kaisa is right out. I have also not, just for the sake of narrowing things down, named the computer any of the following: McNulty, Omar, Xander Harris, Prince Zuko, Logan Echolls, Tally Youngblood, Aslan, or Sokka.
Updated again: Though I should have named it Aang. Oh well. Maybe I’ll save that for my MacBookAir. Hee hee, I crack myself up. (Just kidding, I’m not getting a MacBookAir. Way too big for my netbook needs.)
UPDATED AGAIN… THIS TIME WITH A WINNER!
The name of my computer is…. BUCEPHALUS
