i’m sitting in the boise, idaho airport. i woke up at 4:30 mountain time (3:30 pacific) to catch my 6:00 (mountain) flight to boise. i’m sick and anticipate completely falling apart, mid-afternoon. i’m going to work anyway, though. too much to get done.
there’s a man sitting next to me with a really chunky hp laptop. he’s running a localized copy of xp in japanese. he played one game of ‘go’ and sat looking confused for 10 minutes before he changed the settings to ‘computer vs. computer’. his laptop fan kicked on and it’s madly playing game after game of go against itself, emitting this horrible clicking noise with each move (4-5 a second, most of the time). is he learning?
well, i’m off to take my $3 dose of dayquil and make sure my mail’s synced for the flight. (the boise aiport has free wi-fi; amazing how much more pleasant it is to endure a layover here, as a result.)
