So, I called Best Buy yesterday (and somehow forgot to mention this)...my laptop will be here tomorrow. w00t! Spica has been dead for the past couple of weeks (it had a hard disk crash)...so it had to get sent in, and shipped all the way back to Sony. Ugh.
I registered toastmuffin.org today...$10 over at gandi.net. They're cheap, and they host DNS. Much cheaper than Register's $35/year. Very, very cool. So, now we'll all have a website. w00t. (BTW, the link probably doesn't work yet, because the DNS takes 72 hours)
I've been thinking about a bunch of other stuff, but I'm a little too lazy and too tired to journal it at the moment.
