EDIT: 8:00pm. Now begins the long, painful process of taking down the old and setting up the new. I should be just typing my paper for Seraphim, or I should be out comet-watching with Dan and Amy if it weren't overcast, but I've now taken the beautiful white iMac box out of the brown nondescript shipping box I was carrying across campus earlier, and I no longer have much patience. File transfers, program transfers. It's wonderful to now have pretty much everything backed up on an external harddrive: last time I did this I had to copy things over 150MB at a time, I think it was, on Zip discs between Albertus the PowerMac and Ambrose the iMac. Now, I think I'll just have to go back once with the pretty-much-filled external drive, to get more things out of Ambrose.
Still haven't decided what to name the new thing: to whoever it was who suggested "Sparky," that's not really staying with my great theologian/spiritual master theme. Besides, "Sparky" is what I called the skunk that lived on the grounds of the graduate students' O'Hara-Grace Townhouses back at Notre Dame.
