Her majesty and I just opened her new Alienware laptop. She’s currently on the phone with tech support trying to figure why her 1, 5, and 0 keys do not work to input in the Windows XP serial #. I’m sure it’s something trivial; this 15 1/2 inches wide, 11 1/2 inches long, 2 inches thick, and
14 12 lbs behometh is going to be a blast carrying through 3 security checkpoints on my way to Sydney for MXDU 2005.
At least it boots fast… and the power button and alienhead glow!
:: hears Peldi’s disapproving sigh ::
Done. Turns out those #’s are not in Windows XP serial #’s. It’s fun to type in numbers, then flip the laptop high into the air to read the #’s underneath it Verdana 4 point, and repeat the process for each section of #’s.
I’m sure it’ll regain it’s respect once her majesty caps some dudes on Counterstrike Source, and I brag about her 120 fps at full settings.
