Started to write a post hours ago, realized how long it was going to go, also realized I had a column due for the main page, and thought, "Might as well kill two birds with one laptop." Good thing I have AppleCare on this machine. Then a trip to the eye doc for the annual contact lens refill and exam (verdict: "You're middle aged").
The good news is, the column is going to be a hot one, and I'll post a link as soon as it goes up. The bad news? Going by my eyes, I am so not joking about that middle-aged thing. Sigh.
