yep. today's my birthday.
dave and alex and i went out for brunch. they went shopping and i came to the office to play with a new toy i got. we're going to meet up later in the evening for dinner at that indian place downtown. you know the one.
it's been a while since i've posted. i've been to rochester for mother's day. saw cory & leaih's band play. spent some time with jenelle. i took a sleeper car on the train out of the city. it was amazing. it's the only way to survive traveling by train. maybe it was that i was reading stanislaw lem's "the star diaries," but that sleeper car definitely had a space-pod vibe to it.
but i'm back in the city though. up in rochester i got a handful of really great books that i haven't gotten around to reading yet. and following dkp's lead, i created my own amazon wishlist.
carrie didn't post to her journal yesterday. which happens so very seldomly that i got a bit worried when i woke up this morning. i hope everything's alright.
so what am i doing in the office on my birthday? the company had a spare G3 PowerMac sitting around collecting dust. i swooped it up and am now in the process of installing OS9.2 as a stepping-stone to OSX. the G3 is pretty ancient, i hope it can handle it. it's a 400 with 256mb of RAM and a 9 gig drive. nothing to write home about. i checked the prices on ebay, and i could probably end up buying this off the company for only a couple hundred bucks. we'll see how OSX runs on it first. :)
