Mostly Everything

(Not so) simple joys

A month ago, my MacBook’s backlight gave way. No, the screen wasn’t broken — but I’d have to shine a strong LED light into the screen to see anything. RIght now, my crippled portable is confined as a glorified desktop computer with the external display hooked to a 22-inch monitor. Computer-less in my travels I decided to move my entire Dr. Who (and Firefly) collection into the N900. Pair it with an X-Mini hamburger speaker I won last year at an Intel party. The N900 has turned into a media house for almost all my movies until I get my MacBook fixed (from a pragmatic — and Scroogelike — outlook, it still works).

It’s only now that I’m truly appreciating the convenience of a kick stand!
