shamlessly copy/pasted from mslulu:

I know very little about some of the people on my friends' list. Some people I know relatively well. I read your fic, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she likes spinach."

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal.

and now for a real post

even though most people read their friends pages from top-down, and so technically my last post (which you likely haven't read yet) will be the second post you read and this subject "and now..." will not seem entirely sensical (much like that word), but oh well..

This poor iBook is having living issues. It seems to forget it has a display every now and again. I can turn it on, and hear it make all the little noises it should. And when it should be up, I can do things like hit the eject button and the CD drive pops open, but the display is dead. Closing the cover does not send it into sleep mode, and if I send it to sleep manually (power button, pause, 's' key) then close the lid it will come out of sleep mode when I open the lid, but still nothing on the display.

I finally managed to coax it into brilliance (yeah, like I could do all this without a display) and will be eagerly backing up data to my work computer (the pains of a 120Kbps upload bandwidth) should I not get another chance later on.. But just thought I'd post this as a psuedo-cry for help to any of the Mac-heads who read this .
