Au revoir, friend of the bastard


The Lack of Life is saddened by the loss of The Computer In The Cow Box, who left this world in the fading days of April, aged 9.

The Computer In The Cow Box is preceded in death by most of Gateway Computers, the Zip Disk system, an external DVD burner, the internal modem, Windows XP and its original Epson printer. It is survived by a Motorola cable modem, an Epson 3-in-1, and an elderly 15-inch CRT monitor.

Actually it's at Charlotte St Computers to see if they can get some recent files off the harddrive (all my scripts were stored there). Do you still have your blog, I saw your domain went.

I know a guy who knows a guy who knows a girl who can get rid of it for you... no questions asked.

Hey now you are freed up to get your self a MAC! Once you mac, you never go back.

Too bad this isn't the good old days when we took computers out to our friend Lars' house for a good ol' computer smash and burning. Some times we just drilled a hole, poured in some gasoline and blew it up.

I just came across your post, Would you still happen to have the mousepad that is pictured? I would be interested in buying it.
