2:16p - Impending Laptopicity
Getting a new computer. After much debate with myself, primarily price vs. getting some actual use out of my four hours a day commuting, I've decided on a laptop. I'm thinking of the Dell Latitude D610, the same model truebluejay has, but more tricked out -- better processor and graphics capability (Ah needs mah 1920x1440), DVD burner, etc. Going to get a wireless access point and hook it up to the router my mom has (her computer has no wireless capability, so we need a mixed wireless/ethernet system), so that I don't have to bother with running a line into the basement. Oh, and a port replicator, so I can hook it up to my baby when I'm home. (Note to self: give currently unused Monitor of Godlike Majesty a hug when I get home.)

Turns out my headaches, dizziness, and tiredness over the past week or two are probably due to salt deficiency. I hadn't been doing the math -- I've been drinking roughly 18 glasses of water a day, most of it in the form of two and a half 1.5 liter bottles of water while I'm at work/commuting each day. It wasn't caffeine withdrawal at all -- the bottle of Coke was providing just under 90mg of sodium. So I'm going to start bringing pretzels with me to work. This also explains why I was scarfing tortilla chips all day Saturday.

[Edited 4:31 to correct a sense-distorting typo.]

current mood: dizzy
