McVities Milk Chocolate Digestives

Its only a P133, but linux installs and sound works and it plays MP3′s. So I could drop a network card in it and then control it via a website on another computer. I would have been really cool if I could drop a video encoder card in it and sever real video streams from the box but the latop might be a cheap way of doing it.

I got up nice and early this morning so I could get to work at 9am. This may not seem early but for this guy it is. The last time I had a job to go to was on November 9th 2001. I am now the proud owner of a key for entering the building. My photo was taken for a badge I should get in the next week or so. I have a phone charger for my company issued phone that I should get tomorrow. I have 2 computers at my desk (one that have already wiped and reinstalled with a different OS). I have started working on my first project. I am now tired.
