After a year's hiatus, I've finally reinstated by black MacBook. I got this dear old thing back in Berkeley, when my Dell imploded just before a week of tests and coursework deadlines. It's nice to be back on my own computer (i.e. not a work computer), but it is weird having a poorer experience than I do at work. There is still some oddity with the backlight, which just decides to off itself every now and then, about once an hour, so there will be no movies had. Personally, I don't see myself lasting more than a few months before this old pal sees Ebay, but let's see if I can't make something of him yet.
