Got a new member of the family this week. We Christened him “Marvin” after both the android and the Martian. He joins Baldrick, Voltron, Daria, Mothra and the less-than-inspiringly-named “Paul_PC” in our rag-tag network of electronic friends.
Marvin replaced Baldrick on my desktop, and I couldn’t be happier. He’s just so fast! (Probably because he’s one of them fancy store-bought PC’s and not a Frankenstein of hand-me-down parts or something picked up on the cheap at a computer fair.)
Pre-Marvin, this was my routine for running baseball sims: Click to launch game, go make tea, watch a real baseball game, come back, load the data file, go have lunch, etc., etc. I just launched the baseball game in under 10 seconds! I thought there was something wrong with it!
I think I’m gonna like living in the 21st century.
