Well, my new 20" Cinema display arrived. As you can see from the image, it is much bigger than my 15" powerbook screen. The first part of my new computer is here. Getting this picture lead to some fun. It turns out, the batteries in my camera were dead, so I had to try to charge them. I tried my keyboard’s in the mean time (wireless), and they didn’t work. I was starting to wonder if the camera was broken. I found some batteries, and they worked fine, so I guess I will have to replace the batteries in the keyboard sometime soon. Not too bad considering that I have not changed them for 15 months.
This lead to some other fun. Discover called my parents asking me to call about fraud prevention. So, after a call where they asked me just about every question except where I was born I convinced them that it was really me that ordered the thing. I had them change the phone number too while they were at it. At least it is not as bad as what a credit card company did to my dad. They declined two of his charges claiming that the companies were tele-marketers.
Now to await the remaining pieces.
