corilannam: (Merlin - oh noes!)
I am typing on the new keyboard I just installed in my Eee PC. It doesn't feel as good as the last one and it's a little slow. I don't know whether that's because it cost $10 from Hong Kong or whether it's because I bent the ribbon trying to connect it to the motherboard before I finally figured out the trick to it. Why, oh why, is there no disassembly guide around for the 1000HA?

But it types, yay.

I am settling in to begin rewatching the second series of Merlin. I've been meaning to do this for a while, both because I still haven't watched an episode and a half and because I wanted to take notes for my Angry Feminist Rant on the shoddy treatment of Gwen and Morgana. No, I wasn't overjoyed with much of this season.

Now I have to actually buckle down and watch it all the way through. I realized today that my plan to ignore series 2 in my [community profile] paperlegends story (which I kind of have to get going on) was not going to work. I have the plot all laid out, but no depth of characterization, and that characterization is... going to have to come from series 2.

*sigh*

Maybe I'll like it better this time. Anyone want to convince me I've misjudged it?
corilannam: (Merlin - stuck at work)
My tiny computer arrived this morning! Although I am at work, and indeed have much work to do, I have taken it out of its box and caressed it and plugged it in to charge. It's the first non-desktop I've ever bought, and it's right there under my desk being all tiny and cute.

Thanks to everyone for your wise advice in my last post. I ended up getting neither of the two netbooks I was looking at before. Best Buy wanted to charge me an arm and a leg for tax and shipping, so I went over to browse at Amazon and found something that would cost only a little more total, but would solve my conflict about the keyboard, HD space, and processor speed. For the curious, it's an Asus Eee PC 1000HA (1.6 GHz Intel ATOM N270 Processor, 1 GB RAM (but I'm upgrading to 2 GB tonight), 160 GB Hard Drive). Pretty much exactly what I was looking for.

Now I just have to name it.

Can I just say, of all the Duran Duran members past, present, and future to show up on Twitter? It just figures that it would be Andy freakin' Taylor.

Just in time for the new computer, my Merlin big bang story is eating through my brain like acid. I just hope it lasts long enough to actually get written, instead of stalling out like the majority of my longer stories. This has gotten to the point of becoming a phobia now.

I can't bear to look at Starbuck anymore, so I made a couple of new "stuck at work" icons. This is the first one. It definitely evokes how I've been feeling at my job this week.
