Mosquitos are fucking evil. I have what borders on empirical proof of that in the fact that it has been averaging about 90-100 degrees over the past month with very little water and those things are still
managing to thrive even though they're supposed to need pools of water to lay eggs in. Oh, and the whole bloodsucking vermin thing. Seriously, what kind of hell beast thrives in weather that makes rattlesnakes head for shade? On the other hand, in spite of being in the middle of a several year long drought it's still been consistently humid out here. Maybe there's so much damn water in the air they're able to live off of that.* Fucking Texas.
On a different note, I found info about the new Mac Pro
on Apple's page and it looks pretty cool. Granted, I'm an Apple fan so I'm biased but a few thoughts:
1. It fixes most of the problems that are causing a decline in popularity of desktop computers
2. Given the dimensions of that thing it makes an excellent improvised weapon to whack a robber over the head with in case of a break in. Given how expensive Macs are that might be a last resort, though.
3. Speaking of the size and shape of that thing I wonder how long it will before a meme develops featuring new buyers putting up pics online of themselves holding that thing in front of their crotch.
In other news I've been focusing on music a lot lately (and books about music), and finally (after years) ended up putting together a hi-fi system. Yay! Now the receiver and player and wires just need to arrive in the mail. I was able to pick up some awesome vintage speakers on craigslist, though.*Yes, I know, it doesn't really work that way.
