my main computer at home is a godbox class desktop with a 3 monitor 4960x1600 config. Laptops never go beyond the puttering stage unless I'm on the road. I've got two long weekends planned over the next month and a half that should give the x2 a solid workout.

My main objective is figuring out if all the misc desktop enhancements are worth the rainbow colored full screen start menu for my new desktop built later this year. (Notionally: Haswell, 1TB SSD, GTX680, 16(32?) GB ram.)
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius


Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
