In a timeframe of "it's about damn time", I have my new computer up and running. His name is Madman. I'm transferring stuff from Thalia; I'm not fool enough to try and do it manually, so I'm having her export it over the network. There's rather a lot of stuff in there. I'm impressed. It will probably take a good portion of the night. Meanwhile, Madman is running merrily, with Google Desktop not straining the system, not even with Firefox involved.

Last night was not a good night for sleep. I'll do better today.

I'll need a new monitor; this one is all right for some internetting, but the bottom left corner of it has distorted colors.

myrrhianna pointed out to me that I could just get a USB wireless doodad instead of getting an internal wireless NIC; I've got some of those already. So yay.

I'm having that new and shiny feel to the system right now. It's all so very glamourous. I'm getting used to system setup. I know how I like things, and I'm getting the essential things in. Couldn't do this with floppies.
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?
