I guess computers have improved...

...well, somewhat at least.

Burning a cd
IM up and running (with occasional messages)
web-browsing
Calendar proggy active
Email client going nice and smoothe.
playing another CD

I don't remember doing *quite* so much at once back on the ol' C64.. :)

wandering around nuclear pages (don't ask, I don't know why either), I came across a small table of technical terms used and what they mean:

Transient - a malfunction
Event - malfunction
Scram - unscheduled shutdown
Abnormal evolution - failure to function properly
Normal aberration - malfunction
Unauthorized diversion - theft
Rapid oxidation - fire
Power excursions - out of control
Unplanned hypercriticality - out of control
Spontaneous energetic disassembly - explosion
Nuclear bonus material - waste
