(no subject)

ok, so the new 'puter is jolly lovely, runs nice and fast, and now has over a terabyte of storage.


a terabyte of storage.

That's a thousand gigabytes. 1,000,000,000,000 bytes

(yes, I know about SI vs binary values. stick with me here)

My first PC had 4MB of RAM, and a whopping 100MB of hard disk space.

how long before we look back and laugh. "Oh, remember the days? I had a *whole* terabyte of storage! how quaint! my phone has more than that!"

actually, my phone has a 4GB memory card in. A thousand times more than my old PC's RAM.

in other news, I hate this keyboard. It's really clacky and noisy, and my mouse is a cheap piece of crap.

in other other news: yes, I am procrastinating about writing any more of my NaNo.

music, and writing

Do you write whilst listening to music? Or do you prefer just the clatter of the keyboard or scratching of a pen?

I'm currently listening to Lúnasa, 'Mean Fomhair' from their self-titled album, having tried various other genres with little success. I have to say it's going quite well.

So, dear writer. What do *you* listen to when writing?
