Woah, I just ended up with a laptop. Most excellent! All I have to do is reform the hard-drive and stick Debian on it, and we're ready to ride. This is really exciting: I've never had a laptop before! So, now I ask myself the question: what should I name it?
Also, I'm going to cover it in girly-colorful stickers with My Little Pony and glittery butterflies and such, so nobody will be willing to touch it and I'll know which one is mine when we all get together to have laptop parties with other laptop people.
