Absurdly pleased with myself

I've got my new laptop! And it's beautiful! Spent 4 hours this afternoon migrating stuff off the old one including all my email (had to do the mailboxes individually as they were a bit too big for a bulk effort!) and I'm up and running!! Wheeeeeeee!

OK, it's not brand new but it's at least 7 years younger than my old one - and everything works!!!!!

Woo-hoo! New computers are such fun [g].

I'm somewhat amused by the (LED-backlit) keyboard's habit of lighting up when the sun goes behind a cloud, then abruptly winking out when it thinks the ambient light is good enough! A bit startling, that!

And I'm finally able to start catching up on the LMB list (some 4,000 messages) as I no longer have to go down to the office to get email!! I know I should delete them but the discussion is Chalion and I love those so much more than the Vorkosiverse books.

Oh, that would drive me nuts. My netbook is almost impossible to read in the sunshine, which is its only drawback.

The Chalion discussion was a good one. The Sharing Knife discussion was lively, too (I don't much care for the SK books, so I didn't pay much attention to it, but the quantity of messages was pretty hefty).

But to like the Chalion books better than the Vorkosiverse?!?!? That's heresy! (I do adore Paladin, and I like CoC, but compared to Miles? No way).

Squee! Have you named it?

Actually, no. But then I've never actually named a computer before. Hmmm, maybe I'll just call it Mac?
