well, my machine didn't exactly rise from the ashes, but i have a shiny new machine on my desk. i am still figuring out how to get all the things from the old one onto the new one.
most of it seems to be going without argument.
and the processor on the new machine is so lightning fast that i barely know what to do with myself.
in other news, i mailed out some mystery packages, one of which arrived at its destination yesterday.
one will arrive today.
we'll see about the others.
