Apollo Has Arrived

ApolloI am currently seated aside the famed Grumblefoam (Who really isn’t that famed, except among some of my friends… He’s our desktop computer that has lived forever), though not currently using him to type this report. The reason that I am not using him is because he has a new friend. This new friend, as you may suppose, is the Apollo mentioned above.

I’ve decided to name him Apollo because lately I’ve taken to naming computers and other electronic devices after Greek gods, and, according to the Wikipedia, “Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of light and the sun; truth and prophecy; archery; medicine and healing; music, poetry, and the arts; and more.”

As that seemed a rather fitting description for the latest of my electronic possessions. He’s rather beautiful, as you can see in the photograph accompanying this post, and hopefully he’ll serve me well. I’m pretty darn excited about him, to say the very least.

Anyway, that’s it for right now, as I have much installation and whatnot to do, though I promise that I’ll post something more interesting than this shortly.

  1. So…..um…..how do you feel about HPs? Because that’s what I got a few weeks ago and her name is Sheri. If you can’t accept her, then we can’t be friends anymore. 🙂 But I have to admit, your DELL sounds pretty cool.

  2. Well, truthfully, I’ve never really had an HP. But I figure that if it’s a PC, it’s basically pretty similar overall. So, yes, I suppose that I approve. Though I am a big fan of Dell’s laptops, that doesn’t make me prejudiced.

    And yes, Apollo is amazing.

  3. Glorious.
