MY GRAPHICS TABLET CAME IN TODAY. There aren't words for how excited I am right now.

Of course, it may be a few days before I get it up and running. Installing new things on Spawny is like juggling Wolverines--ridiculously complicated with a decidedly high chance of losing a limb. I've spent the last hour convincing my wireless internet that yes, Mommy loves him too, that things aren't going to change just because she's brought a new device home, and please to stop uninstalling himself before Mommy can finish downloading the tablet's driver.

Hopefully the next hour will be more productive?

THERE IS LESS THAN A MONTH LEFT BEFORE DRAGON*CON.

It kind of feels like I just slept through the last year. There were tons of things I'd planned to have accomplished by now that totally fell by the wayside. I fail so hard. :[

I finally got a laptop cooler thingy to keep Spawny from setting my desk on fire. (Seriously, last night I burned my finger on the on/off button. True story!) Spawny is so much happier that it's like he's a totally different laptop! Still psychotic, but... like... on meds now.

So now it needs a name. I was kind of thinking of Wilson, since you know he's kind of a doormat and sometimes he calms House down. But if I named it Wilson, I would be seriously tempted to change Spawny's name to House (because dude, it would totally fit. Misanthropic, disabled, and hot!). Dad wanted me to name it The Fonz-- because he's COOL. GET IT?! (I love my dad.) (I also kind of wanted to rename Spawny "Fi," and then the laptop cooler could be named "Michael," because dude's pretty darn cool, and he calms down Fi's crazies, but I'd totally be switching genders on Spawny. I don't know how he'd feel about that.)

Suggestions?

Cornchips + salsa + sangria = AWESOME. Um. Not, you know, all mixed together. Because that would be weird and possibly gross.

Does anyone know how to for-serious perform an exorcism on a computer? Spawny the demon laptop is living up to his name hard core tonight.

So. Computers? Need to die.

Alex's Adventures With Her Computer! )

For all concerned parties [yeah, all one of you], after that last shutdown I foolhardedly started up my computer again. Hey, twenty-third time's the charm, right? And... it worked. Nothing was wrong. Everything worked like a dream.
