Timing Is Everything

Well, ain't this a fine kick in the teeth.

The day before I leave on vacation, my desktop computer (Frankenputer) suffers an apparent catastrophic failure of its primary hard drive.

Good thing I have my laptop backup (Electric Mayhem) on hand.

But I'm gonna be largely offline for a day or so longer...

Trust me, folks: I miss you more than you're missing me.

I developed a rather embarrassing facial tic and my Tourette's got a little out of control due to the lack of posts today.

I'm much better now, thank you.

Well, I'll be thinking of you this weekend as I pass through that little corner of the Granite State as I make my way to Nouveau-Brunswick from Boston. It's been requested that I stop at the state liquor store for the max allotment of Allen's Coffee Brandy, a staple in the Pinetree State, and an even more important commodity to the island dwellers. Good luck with the computer issues and return quickly. I'll have plenty of examples of moonbattery from my conversations with the same island folk when I return to the Beehive State (oh hell, with a trip to San Francisco in between. Lord help me).

Does anybody know why Coffee Brandy is known as IPR in those parts?

I dunno if 'Frankenputer' is to be salvaged or taken out back and shot, but you really should take a long look at a Mac next time around. Time Machine is your friend.

I meant that he could use the "Electric Mayhem" to blog on while the frankenputer is on vacation.
