Macbeth the Usurper

Parts

 I got the new power converter for my old iBook. It worked. Yay. Now I don't have to live in fear of the power cord.

The old iBook just isn't a good server. I need to manually view all the pages to pre-generate the thumbnails, which is rather slow. Once that is done, the beastie works OK.

I'm looking at old PC's, but most of them aren't worth my time unless they are free. Oddly, I can get old servers for much cheaper than old PC's. The specs are far better, too. Go figure. I might scrape up the funds to grab an old server. Not any time soon, though.

I've started into watching Avatar. So far, I am confused. Super-expert scout marine with jungle experience is an utter dork in the jungle? I'm not buying it.
