So, Spud and I went up to the parents this weekend, which is not that new or fancy…
But this time, Akom and Belfry came with us, and that made it new and exciting because they had not seen the house. They loved the house, and I loved all the new furniture that my mom got, especially outside in the enclosed patio. It was all gorgeous and outside-proof and looked like it was great for a party.
In the meantime, Dad got a new car, and it is gorgeous and we love it. We spent a better part of Saturday just driving around in it. And Belfry did probably the most rigorous testing on various highway on-ramps.
We also ran a few errands and I got some new shows… and I got a whole bunch of Yeungling (because it is sold in SC/NC and not in GA and I like it).
We also ate a lot, and it was delicious, and mostly, the four of us just had a wonderful time hanging out. It was sort of a home-away-from-home and I loved seeing my parents again and my parents love my friends and very few things are as cool.
The only thing that sucked about this weekend is that the HTC Touch Pro was delayed. It was supposed to come out today, but apparently it got pushed back to November 2. I was looking forward to it. Thankfully dwath sent me the link showing the delay on Saturday, so I didn’t run to the store going “do you have it!?” only to have my hopes dashed in the store. Oh well.
At least the G1 doesn’t come out until the 20th of November. Otherwise it would be a much harder decision.
Finally, one more cool thing about tonight. When I got home, Araken was lamenting his macbook being stupid and not accepting new RAM chips. He asked if I wanted to try them in mine to see if my macbook would like them. At first, it wouldn’t. The macbook just kept beeping over and over. But then I tried Eric’s suggestion of only running one module at a time… and they worked individually, and I tried both again and they worked. So I paid Geoff for the memory (he had found it cheap) and now my macbook has twice the memory and is behaving deliciously.
I will be happy to help him cycle his memory to see if he can get the speed I am now enjoying. He is about to go to a really cool conference and wants the dual-boot-at-the-same-time ability.
