I get home late tonight, and start getting set up to work on Ghost Town, when my computer stubbornly refuses to start.

Unafraid of data loss (seeing as how my files are stored on a 1 terabyte raid array, and backed up to two different computers), I go to my closet and dig out a spare power supply (one of three). Plugging it in and seeing that it works fine, I curse my old power supply for randomly failing, make a note to head out to Fry’s tomorrow, and continue on my merry way.

Then it occurs to me — if I were someone else, I would probably be on the line with Dell’s tech support about now, possibly in tears.

Sometimes it is good to be me.
