What geeks do in their leisure time

I have spent the last 3 days trying to transfer files from one computer to another. Because I didn’t have the right firewire cable, I used ethernet.

Big mistake.

Total time: 54 hours+.

And at the last hour, my computer crashed.

My friend from Apple told me I should get a firewire cable. Albert and I decided we would go pick one up at Radio Shack later in the evening.


Albert: (to Angela, in a sultry voice) Hey, baby. Wanna go check out some firewire cables? Or we could look at … (wiggles eyebrows) capacitors.

Daniel: I am deeply disturbed. Let me find a brick wall [to bang my head against].

So Albert and I had a mini date at Radio Shack. I picked up a cable and total time to transfer files is now less than 2 hours.

    Filed under “Humor”??? Sounds like this belongs in a “Romance” category!

    The time difference is so amazing! I’m not a geek, but I can appreciate it as well.
