Of meeces and delivery men

Shiny new mouse arrived, at some point in the last few days, though possibly this morning as rjk noted he heard a delivery van around at some point. They didn't knock, they didn't leave a note, they just left the box sitting in the bin cupboard on top of the bin. Wouldn't have found it til Tuesday night if we hadn't had a takeaway curry.

Computer still very reluctant to come back up after being powered down, so I shall just have to try make sure I rarely have to power it down. Tempted to upgrade it at some point soon: rjk suggests new motherboard and case should be sufficient, and possibly new soundcard. No reason why I can't afford it really, just never been that fussed since this one seems fast enough to me. But then I said that of the 486 up until the point I stopped using it almost, and definitely appreciated the upgrade when it finally came. Wonder if I should try get a newer Windows while I'm at it. Win95 utterly obsolete and really pretty useless, but I don't really use it much anyway. Will have a think.

Off over to Karen's in a bit, have enough sins to drink to moderate excess and not regret it. Will try drag august along.
