From [livejournal.com profile] jophan:

You scored as Dawn Summers. You're a typical teenager. Though it seems people don't care about you, they really do. Heck, they'd give their lives for yours. Things change, you can't change that, but you can deal, and you will!

You are .rpm  You have a nice package.  You can be useful, but your many variations sometimes make you tough to find.  You aren't apt to get jealous.
Which File Extension are You?


File extensions. Hmpf. Give me creator codes any day.

Today, [livejournal.com profile] thette visited me for a brief introduction into the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. We watched the following episodes:

1:12 Prophecy Girl
2:14 Innocence
2:22 Becoming part II
3:9 The Wish
3:16 Doppelgängland
4:10 Hush [genuinely scary in parts!]
4:22 Restless

Most of it was very good, and parts of it even brilliant. After several of my friends whose judgement I trust have talked at some length about how brilliant this series is, I have finally been converted. I have a long viewing ahead of me, it seems...

(Also, I found a videotape today, with the film titles Mitt liv som hund and Mannen som slutade röka in a hand I don't recognise. I'm buggered if I know where it came from and how it ended up with me; I even find it a bit creepy, and suspect there is some kind of gnome coming into people's homes at night to drop off strange VHS tapes on their bedroom floors. While less likely, this theory is more emotionally satisfying than "I borrowed this tape from someone last year but forgot from whom, what with my memory being slightly worse than that of your everyday goldfish".)

Finally paid for a full 100 user pictures. That should last me for a while.

Late yesterday afternoon I went to Macoteket in Sundbyberg to pick up the following:

• A Mac mini (1.42GHz, 80GB, 512MB, combo drive)
• A LaCie mini 250GB external FireWire hard disk
• A Belkin FireWire/USB 2.0 hub
AppleCare Protection Plan for Mac mini
iWork '05

It works very well with my KVM switch, so I won't have to sacrifice another desk for this pet but can use the monitor, keyboard and mouse I also use for the desktop PC. I spent last night until 2.30 migrating stuff onto it from the old Tangerine Rev D iMac and the hard disk of my late, lamented iBook, and then I just need to put all the files in the right place.

Having a modern Mac again feels like coming home. There's no place like ~, you know.

Bugger. My iPod photo just froze in mid-playback, and now it's just showing this icon:



I don't even hear the hard drive in it. I suspect there's something badly wrong here. Which means I'll have to dig out the receipt as soon as I get home tonight and go back to the shop to get it repaired/replaced. Goddamn. Well, at least there wasn't anything irreplaceable on the HD.

UPDATE:
And presto! All of a sudden it works again, but I'm buggered if I know how and why. Best to keep the receipt handy just in case.

I got a Skype account a while back, but I don't have anyone I know I can talk to. If you're interested, I am awahlbom there as well (unsurprisingly).
