Electrical Outlet (July 2010)
Man, what a dope I am.
I have backup software – three different brands, actually – installed on a laptop I use mostly for work. So what happens? The hard drive dies.
When I'm not even doing anything. Ok, I had just installed Google Earth so I could figure out how it works.
This was waiting on my desk on Tuesday, after I took a day off on Monday.
I'll be taking it for a spin for a few days. Anyone have suggestions about what sort of spin to put it through, please drop a note in the comments or to me personally.
But out of the box, you know what? It's big. And all screen.

In the summer after I finished college, my older sister bought me a wonderful two-volume collection of Sherlock Holmes – all 56 short stories and the four novels, with critical essays, long annotations attempting to establish actual dates and places from “the canon” and reproductions of the original Sidney Paget drawings of Holmes, Watson and others from the tales.
