This day in history from:

Feeling the end of Scarlett is near

I've had Scarlett, my trusty MacBook (ICD 2.0 GHz) for almost two years now.

And it was the one of the best investments I ever had. Let's just say that as of now, she has paid for herself more than ten times over.

I'm so grateful for that, to that point I have made a lot of upgrades to her over time. I've upgraded her memory from her original 512 Mb to 1Gb then to 2Gb and I still have the working RAM modules with me. I've also upgraded her hard drive from her original 60Gb to 120Gb. I almost upgraded her again recently to 250Gb, but I missed the drive during the Ynzal Red Tag sale. And finally, I upgraded her OS from her original 10.4 Tiger to 10.5 Leopard.

But I feel time has run her course and it's the beginning of her end.

She's starting to not shut down properly. I get stuck with the wallpaper and I have to manually shut her down by pressing the power button.

I know it's a minor thing but knowing computers for about three-fourths of my life, I know that these minor problems will begin to snowball. And this early, I have to think about her replacement already.

I have been set on acquiring a MacBook Pro as a logical upgrade to Scarlett. And that's what I'll probably buy to replace her.

But don't worry, I won't sell off Scarlett unless I really, really have to. She has served me so well she deserves my loyalty at the very least and I will keep her until she still works. She will just be relegated to the background once her replacement is here. And this replacement will not come immediately, of course. I'm still reeling from acquiring my new flute. But again, I must already think of her replacement this early. Bea will probably be the beneficiary of this future switch.

Also, I already picked out a future name for this new computer more than a few months ago. But I'm going to disclose that name once she's already here.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
