As I seated myself on one of the new couches, beer and laptop in hand, the unfamiliarly slick surface and round arms led to a moment of discombobulation which resulted in a sploosh of beer over the keyboard and trackpad of the Powerbook.

At first, it appeared that all was well, but moments ago, the machine froze, and now it won’t boot.

Due to the move, I don’t know where all my diagnotic emergency CDs are. Bummer.
