Snuggly Laptops

A warm power supply in a laptop in a slightly chilly apartment makes for a snuggly laptop, especially if you're in your favorite beanbag chair just so.

I view my laptops not so much as people in their own right, but as guardian spirits attached to places. I "live" on computers. I work on computers. Hm, perhaps I should make myself different logins for "home" vs. "work"...? But computers are both person and place.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
