...And then I bought a new laptop. So I can play online without having to sit in the study where there are no comfy chairs and nothing else to do, and Dave can sit at one end of the couch with a book and I can sit at the other. The tiny-green-laptop (OLPC is great for surfing, but it's hell to type on, and it can't handle AIM very well).
I guess I'd need a new one by Mystery Hunt anyways, because having to hunt on a borrowed laptop is a pain. So I feel slightly less guilty. Shiny macbook is shiny, though.
