Posted by Arcane Gazebo at September 8, 2003 10:50 PM You'd expect the campus computer store to have computers that work. Instead their online sales computer is apparently prone to the sort of database error that sends out misleading e-mails. By "misleading" I mean the sort of e-mails that say "Your order is ready for pickup" when a more accurate statement is "Your order will be ready for pickup in 10-15 days".

Which means I have a bit longer to come up with a name for it. I'm open to suggestions; the only requirement is that the name be feminine. (It is going on my lap, after all.) Leading candidates at the moment are Lucia and Aelia. (For the uninitiated, these are characters in Lunar 2 and Valkyrie Profile respectively.)

When this computer does arrive, inverse here will be relegated to full-time server status. With that in mind, it might seem strange that I am going through the long and arcane process of upgrading Gnome to version 2.2 from some 1.x version (I forget which). Well, I agree on the irrationality of it, but there's a Linux RSS reader I want to try and it requires Gnome 2.

On a completely unrelated note: Do you like 8-Bit Theater? Do you like The Dead Alewives Dungeons and Dragons sketch? Wouldn't a Flash animation combining the two really suck? That's what I thought, anyway, but this proved me wrong - it's brilliant. It's funny even if you have no idea what I'm talking about right now, so get clicking! Tags:
