A new face
October

The biggest news from Christmas is the retirement of Vanyel, trusted desktop computer of mine for the past seven years. Yes, snigger if you must, but I'm not a tech head, and since he was doing the minimal things I was asking of him, we got along fine for over half a decade. However, it is time for him to rest, and stop hearing me curse his name everytime he crashes.

Now, I have Equinox. I am nervous about this, because it seems like so much could go wrong. We're not familiar with each other yet - we haven't figured out each other's mood. But hopefully this new relationship will last another seven years.

Thank you Vanyel. Welcome Equinox.

I am always glad to hear that computers have lived a long life.

This is because I still think of computers like pets (say, a cat), which some people find a little creepy.

I have a very personal connection with my computer - hence when the 'name your computer' field came up, I took it very seriously. I think I paced about for a good while before accepting Equinox.

You decided on a good name, I think. Quenya?

Oh, nevermind. Read all comments... Now I see. ;) It just seems so Quenya-esque.

It's definitely not creepy.

Vanyel, eh? Mercedes Lackey "Magic's" trilogy reference perchance?
