I spent some time working on my laptop today. Oh, didn't I mention? I helped a girl by setting up her new laptop, and she gave me her old one. "It's not worth much; it stopped working this week." Well I installed Ubuntu, and when I rebooted the computer it completely locked up and I heard the dreaded Dell click of death over and over. As far as I know, all Dell laptop hard drives fail completely within 3 years. Don't ever purchase a Dell laptop.
The other day I picked up Limeaway for my bike. Oh, didn't I mention? A graduating senior offered me his bike on the cheap, so I purchased it. It's turquoise. You just can't understand the significance of that statement unless you see the bike, but trust me on this one -- it's turquoise with a vengeance.
I need to de-rust the bike (and replace the chain, and tighten up the brakes, and paint it not turquoise) and replace the Dell laptop hard drive, in addition to selling off a number of books I've accumulated and backing up everything on my main computer.
It seems to be a summer of projects!
