ohhhh, a laptop has changed my life.  my last laptop was a hand-me-down 166 mhz
dell latitude.  it passed on earlier this year.  and it was remarkably handy
to its ill end.

i had contemplated getting a powerbook.  but my compaq v2000 was cheaper, its
dothan chip clearly bests the g4 in benchmarks, and i just resist blending in
with the coffeehouse crowd at present.  my apologies, that was mean.  or true.
i saw four guys in a row, mesmerized, with glowing apples, and i thirsted for
otherwise.

so, yeah.  it's just easier to be productive when i can code out in the biosphere.

having a good time doing RedHanded.  ruby is aged enough to
have a smattering of excellent inside jokes: son-shi, code katas, slavoj zizek, and of
course the elaborate duck enthusiasm that pervades the culture.

spent all last week and this week working on the syck updates.  the base lib in
cvs is now usable again.  the ruby extension is broken, but should be stellar
soon enough.

and yet, i still need lasers in my life.
