I've ordered a new MacBook. My trusty eMac had been deteriorating fast--unexplained crashes, weird sparkly "snow," etc. I ran some cleanup utilities and thought it was a bit better, but then it locked up and destroyed 8 hours of work (probably the best writing I'd done in six months). I'm typing this blog post on the eMac, but I'm obviously not using it for anything mission-critical. I'm currently trying to remember the lost article and reconstruct it on my old "toilet seat" iBook. Argh.
On the bright side...NEW COMPUTER! AIRPORT HUB! SHINY!
As soon as I have a computer I'm not nervous about, I'll post some photos of the fall garden, which is coming along quite nicely.
