Woo-hoo! The university IT services dept approved my application for a partially-funded new computer — I was a little afraid they wouldn’t, as only permanently employed people are supposed to get that, and I only have another year or so to go. But they approved it (because the head of my department signed my papers — thank you, Christer!) and hopefully I’ll be looking at a shiny new MacBook Pro, 2GHz, sometime after Easter.

It couldn’t have come at a better time. My old Powerbook, Senex, is no longer portable: every time I close it, a couple of cables are trapped and if I do it too often I’m afraid they will fray and break. So I’ve had to start using the almost-useless computer which is taking up space on my desk at work, and use Senex only at home. In a way it’s nice to have just a memory stick to carry to and from town, instead of a computer, but it wouldn’t work in the long run. So yay!!

Plus the MBP is shiny, and has a built-in camera, and it’s fast like the wind. I’ve only heard good things about it, apart from some stuff that doesn’t really affect me anyway.
