02:46 am: I Was Given an Asus Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
That's as close as I get to squeeing. The Making Light folks got this for me because they thought I've done a lot of good and while I'm not sure it's that much, I'm definitely taking the computer!

I had lunch in Silver Spring with Janet, Ginger, and albatross and we had a great time and then Ginger handed over the wrapped computer! It's just what I wanted (because I'd mentioned that when someone asked what an Eee was) and I will eventually swap it for my desktop by using a USB hub for the peripherals. Charlie thinks I should have a different Linux distro and thinks I can't put it on (which is possible, I've never used Linux) but there's a Linux Users Group near and I may just do that first. Then I'll have to start moving stuff over and once that's done, I can use the old computer to rip my CDs (that will take a while!) and possibly use the drive as a tertiary backup.

The drive up, walking, having fun, walking, and drive back wore me out so I slept six hours when I got home, which means I'm just going to do a few more things and then go to bed. I'll catch up on LJ and ML tomorrow.

I mentioned at lunch how squirrels were introduced into DC and here's the story.

Thanks! I read through the manuals last night and plan to put the battery in and let it power up tonight.

Aw, c'mon -- you've been the driving force behind a few other people getting nice things. Everyone agreed it was about time we did something nice for you.

I'm so glad we were able to meet, and next time we'll do something closer to you so you don't get worn out.

Yes, but I didn't do those things to get a reward and it feels a bit odd to get one. Not that you can have the Eee back.

Yes, closer would be nice!
