You know, the super secret Mac lab is almost like having my own computer alive and kicking. I've got my iPod hooked up and charging and playing, I was able to get files off my Firewire drive and onto my network drive yesterday, I changed out the one-button mouse for my own two-button-plus-scrollwheel mouse, and I can even use iJournal instead of posting this via the web update page.
And I'm pretty sure there's nobody else on the entire first floor. Nobody. At all. Even in the PC lab. It's beautiful, I tell you. And if it's like this on a Sunday afternoon, prime working time for Kenyon students, then probably it'll be fairly similar for the rest of the week. Ahhhhh.
In less thrilling news, I realized that I lost a poem for comps I'd been working on this week that I really liked, and it's proving difficult to recreate. I think I've got most of the better half of it back into this computer, but it's not as good as it was. The second half of it, I don't mind losing, 'cause it was pretty much crap anyway, but...urg. And I lost the large versions of some pictures I really liked from one of my photography outings, though at least I still have the 800x600 versions of them. Still. Blah.
Also, the only library in the OhioLink system that has a copy of the 1830 exposé Deadly Adulteration and Slow Poisonings Unmasked, or Disease and Death in the Pot and Bottle won't let it be taken out of the library, so I can't request it. Searching for it online has pulled up little of interest. It's not vital to my paper, but how coool would it be to be able to cite that? Really. It would be awesome. Also, it would let me cite someone besides Moxham for that particular section, which would be nice, as I think I'm going to have to do great battle with Ibid. again this semester.
Back to work. At least I'm actually getting stuff done instead of fooling around online like I usually do in my room. This whole experience might be good for me in the end.
