Of laptops, Cincinnati, and car.

Just over a week ago I finally sent my laptop in for repair. (It had started hanging at random; I suspected a cracked motherboard). I was going to borrow my (then current) boss' identical machine. Instead he gave me the new 17" Powerbook that was for my new boss (who started yesterday; my now "previous" boss is actually 2 levels above me). I used it 2 days, then Wednesday my machine came back.

Thursday morning I got up late, had breakfast, and was about to head for Cincinnati for the PRRT&HS annual meeting. Opened the laptop, plugged in the GPS, screen went white. Crap.

Now, I have to finish getting user account creation for our test setup for the overseas campus done. It's been a huge downer so far.
