Thank You, Donors!


Thanks to all the MNFTIU Laptop Fundraiser donors, I am now blogging from a coffee shop … a longtime dream fulfilled, due entirely to the generosity of my readers … THANK YOU …

By the way, I went to a new yoga class last night (my fifth class), and the more I learn about yoga, the more I wonder if maybe it wasn’t started in America … lots of foreign-sounding words and phrases last night … maybe Asian(?) or Indian(?) … maybe after a few more classes I’ll work up the courage to ask my teacher, “Hey, where did this crazy exercise system come from, anyway? I thought Abraham Lincoln invented it.”

But for now, I’m having a blast twisting my lower back all out of shape and compressing my spine on this wrinkledy-ass old couch at the coffee shop, using my new laptop! (By the way for everyone who was curious, I bought a refurbished MacBook — or as my mother-in-law pronounces it, a “McBook.”)

Here are the stats:
Model Name: MacBook
Model Identifier: MacBook5,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 3 MB
Memory: 2 GB
Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz

No OS9, alas, but I guess that’s the “new normal.” OS9, your name will forever ring out in my mind.

More blogging next week! I’m gonna blog from the top of a tree if it kills me.
