My Computer Has A First Name…

…It’s D-A-E-N-E-R-Y-S. As in Daenerys Targaryen from the Game of Thrones.

So remember that time I bought a new Macbook Pro and didn’t know what to name her? After some thought, I’ve decided that naming her after Daenerys is appropriate because my Macbook, being the 13 inch size, is little, but she’s powerful, just like the Mother of Dragons.

Can’t you see the resemblance?

Day 154

This is my 1977th blog posting. Which is significant, of course, because I was born in 1977.

In preparation for this momentous occasion, I started writing a posting with a list of interesting things that happened in 1977 – pretty much picking and choosing those things that caught my attention on the list on the Wikipedia page for 1977. But in light of news of Steve Job’s passing, which I just heard on Twitter – on my MacBook Pro – when I got home from work this evening, I’ve deleted everything on my list except this:

  • January 3rd, 1977 – Apple Computer Inc. was incorporated.
Goodbye, Steve.
