Well, here I am in my new home. Jiji's terrified of it, she spent well over two hours hiding between the washer and the wall. Messed up a bit, sent the lovely lady to get the last of the stuff out of my old place, forgetting that I left my checkbook in the car. The movers had to wait two hours for her to get back until they could leave. Total cost: $620 and the sword I gave N and she left. So far, the only casualty is my dear departed keyboard, a genuine IBM model 103 fully mechanical, large footprint keyboard, manufactured in 1984 and sold with an original XT. I'm on some bullshit Labtec I got for $10 at Meijer until I can get to work and figure out why it's not being detected during POST. I want that bad motherfucker back, this thing is a toy. Anyway, place is fucking p1mp, I'm happy. Back to work now.
Oh, and one last thing. 1425Kbps on the cablemodem. Slick.
No, yet one more thing: anyone want to buy a high-quality futon mattress and red tropical flower pattern cover? It's actually comfortable enough to sleep on, I did so for a few months straight. $50 takes it, paid $300. Moving from 950ft² to 750ft² has it's disadvantages.
