The Apple Store people basically said they wouldn't take the 'Book back. So, I'm living with it until the HD eventually dies. The screen still has splotches, but they're much less noticeable than they were on the other two machines.
computer names
How do you name your systems?

Up until now, I've been using the names of cards from Magic: the Gathering. This system isn't ideal, however, since I no longer play the game. I'm not too keen on calling my systems "desktop", "server", and "laptop"; that just seems too... unimaginative, kinda like naming a dog "Dog".[1]

An ideal naming scheme would be imaginative, but still give some idea of each machine's intended function. I'll be damned if I can find a decent one.

[1] If I ever get another cat, though, I'm naming it "Neko".

Overall it's going well, sorta.

I completely bombed a discrete math test today (3 Nov), though. At least the prof allows us to drop a test.

Still playing. Still suck.
