It's pretty in South Bend, though it sounds like it's going to be crappy pretty soon. Snow in a couple of days. It's already starting to rain. Though we had a great run of weather for a while.

I'm liking the new laptop; the keyboard feels great, it's quick, pretty light, and the battery lasts forever. Tough to complain. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that the cover is all black, and not terribly interesting. I looked at slapping a big sticker or something on it, but decided to go with a stencil. This is a dead mockingbird (think literiature). I hand-cut the stencil, and shot it with Rustoleum plastic paint. Hopefully it stays put. I'm pretty happy with the results so far anyway.
