My old laptop is still kind of functional. It just powers down on its own at random. Kind of annoying and at this point not worth fixing since it’s a few years old and technology has progressed since I got it. (It was a gift from my dad when I graduated from college, by the way. Thanks again, Dad.)
So…I went to Best Buy and bought a Sony Vaio in a neat textured white. It’s not top of the line or anything, but it’s got more bells and whistles than I’m used to. 3 GB of RAM, 250 GB hard drive, Dual-layer DVD burner, four USB ports, firewire and some stuff I can’t identify and I’ll probably never use…and it’s made me change my opinion on something…
As some of you may know, I have a computer in my basement/studio/bandroom for recording purposes that came set up with Windows Vista. You also may know that I’ve been droning on and on about how much I hate Vista. Well, it turns out that either (a) I only hate FIRST GEN Vista, or (b) I hate that actual computer, but Vista is fine. Either way, Vista works great on my laptop and things run smoothly and quickly. So, I repent of my wrongdoing in speaking ill of Vista…but not of that particular computer.
That’s it for now…just bragging.
- A bunch of Aimee Mann and a little bit of Squeeze. They’re touring together and I’m going to the show in St. Louis on Tuesday. I’m a lot more excited about Aimee Mann than Squeeze. I basically like Squeeze (though I’m not a fan of the production on their albums), but I’m really a big Aimee Mann fan. So…that’s what’s going on Tuesday.
