It’s Coming!

It will be faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a locomotive.

It took me long enough, but I finally ordered a new computer. As we speak, the custom doodads are being placed under its hood. It is a kickass 17” notebook that contains the memory of a 100 herds of elephants and will be as fast as an F22 Raptor. It’s bad to the bone. The mondo unit will be WiFi’d so that I can create these pearls of wisdom from anywhere in the House by the Parkway and its immediate surroundings.

When I don’t feel like blogging from the Deck or from Mr. Recliner, I will be able to place it into its docking station and use a regular keyboard and mouse and check shit out on a new 19” flat screen. Screw something up? No problem. I’ll have an external drive that backs everything up. Hell, it’s even got a webcam in it, which will come in handy if I ever feel like mooning the ‘sphere.

Fortunately, a colleague and friend of mine, who is a serious computer guy, has graciously volunteered to come to the House by the Parkway and wire it all up and make sure it’s battle ready.

Of course, once he leaves, I’ll have to figure out how to make all of it work. I may have a question or two.

Can a digital camera be far behind?

Stay tuned.
