Google Wave

I tend not to be an early adopter of tech. With software, it’s because most software in the world exists to solve problems that I don’t have. With hardware, it’s that and the fact that new hardware is expensive as well. Thus it is that I only recently joined Google Wave. My impression before joining, [...]

the new machine

The new computer’s finally assembled. I’d have put together some kind of assembly guide, except there’s so little point. In assembling a computer, all you have to do is fit together the pieces.
