I got a 2TB external hard drive today. Altogether I now have 6TB of storage.

Jesus Christ! Wow. I remember when I got my first "real" computer. It was a Zenith 286, and it had a 20MB hard drive in it, and it ran Windows 3.1.

Storage capacity has become massive!

Massive, indeed! My first computer was a Tandy 2000 w/ a 256K hard drive. Now my cell phone has more memory than that.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

My 'book store guy' had located these for me:
  • Clifford D. Simak's City. Linked SciFis from 1944-1951 about a future where man has left the cities.
  • The Marching Morons (1951) and the -kinda- prequel, The Little Black Bag (1950), I had to buy Eight Worlds of C. M. Kornbluth to find in print (I seriously need an e-book reader )

And my Foundation and Earth had arrived...

I was a really happy shopper today.

Some stuff for dinner tonight so I can actually stay in and cook a little something and not be tempted to order out.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I haven't technically purchased it yet, but I made a bid on a vintage 1960s Harris Tweed deerstalker in grey wool with silk lining for my Sherlock Holmes costume. It's a men's size 7 1/8, so it might be a tad large on me, but I'll work it. I just hope I get it, it's still at a bargain price 11 bids in.

Also, I'm enough of a fan of the original stories to know that Holmes was never specifically described as wearing a deerstalker, and I don't care!

Oops, larger than I'd expected! Earrings by my favorite bead artist -- for those of you who've seen the pic of me wearing a blue and white beaded necklace, it's the same woman. Anyway, I bought these and a handwoven jacket at the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival this weekend.

Went to Half Price Books and picked up a Pogues cd and a book, Luther: The Calling. No, not THAT Luther. It's a detective story about John Luther, the character Idris Elba plays on the TV show.

So, now I can read a whole book while fantasizing about Idris Elba and it won't be counter-productive.

Some takeout lunch since I didn't really feel like whipping up some lunch myself.
