It's not terribly exciting but we got our new development computer in today (the one that Phil and I use, and Roo's computer will start offloading some of its video rendering to)… The OS install crashed half-way through, but we'll get it set up tomorrow — I'm dying to see how fast this thing (it's a quad-core chip) can do stuff like build search engine data. I'm also dying to start optimizing my code for this chip.

PS. As a point of trivia, the first programming environment I worked in was a dual Z80 CPM machine. Yeah, I'm really that old — it wasn't used. Although “dual CPU” is stretching it because it just had the second Z80 to control the disc drives. So does a dinosaur really have two brains if the second one is just to handle an ass-sized peripheral?

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
