Cowboy Blob's Saloon and Shootin Gallery

I'm not a real Cowboy, but I play one in the movies.

I used to have money

But then I paid tuition, went Christmas shopping, winterized the Ranger, and bought a MacBook for school. At least I've got a cash reserve for the road trip East (will get plunked down for the credit card bill when I get back if nothing bad happens).

Freakin' MacTops don't have a dial-up modem in them so I have to spring for a USB modem? I didn't go totally cheap, but didn't go MacBookPro, either. I might even load up the Final Cut Pro 6 software and play with that while I'm home.

Maybe I should have sprung for a trip to the optometrist, too. Those icons on the new camera sure seem small.

    I just booted it up; here I have no problem since one of my neighbors seems to have an non-password wireless, but I don't need it here. At Mom's house, almost half of her neighbors are in a different area code, and Hoofty-town's Mickey D's not likely to be as wired as, say, Seattle.

    I went on a spring vacation in the wooded wilds of North Carolina, not far from nowhere. Fired up the laptop to download some pics, and behold! a faint signal. Someone had a back-country network running.

    You can't escape. Not anymore.

    Nice toy, this..
