Joys of Dualism

I'm at Cofee Tree. When I was ordering, the cashier was surprised --she swore that I was already there, and had ordered an hour before.She decided that it must've been someone who looked just like me.Image that -- someone who looks just like me. I've only met one personwho made that impression to me. That reminds me of a study on race I readsome time ago, suggesting that people focus on facial characteristicsthat differ the most among the people they grew up with. Orientalsand Occidentals both look relatively uniform to each other.

At work, my new workstation came in, and it's a monster! Dual 2.4Ghz, 2GRAM, and, as will no doubt come as a surprise to Andrew, and was certainlya surprise to me, capable of dual-head. I got all that working, and with only2 drawbacks -- it sometimes fails to boot (only in SMP mode -- maybe powermanagement related?), and sound doesn't work at all. I'll cope :) I lovedualhead! It's fantastic for programming...
