Happy Canada Day retroactively. I spent the day celebrating how great Canada is by running around places I’ve never been to, ever, in Toronto with my friends. The moral of the story is to always stop and read the signs to where you’re going. Sadly, you guys suck because you left at the part of Project Tdot where you didn’t have to run.
On Thursday, I went to PC Village near Ten-Ichi (or as we say, Teen Yut). I like that place. I was there a while ago getting RAM. This time, we happened to get there just after they closed. They let us in to buy the Samsung ML-1610, a monochrome laser that was going for $65 after rebate. A good deal. Of course, we forgot about getting a USB cable and didn’t have enough money so they said screw it and just gave us the $5 USB cable for whatever change we had left. I tested it out at home and it works like a dream. It just sucks up the page and spits it back out, but with words, instantly. Unfortunately, I already have two printers on the desk so I disconnected it and put it aside for when my new computer arrives eventually.
Speaking of eventually, that should be within 8-12 days. Yes, I have also celebrated Canada Day by waiting until the GST dropped so I could snag a Macbook:
MacBook – White
- 60 GB Serial ATA drive
- Accessory Kit
- Apple Mini-DVI to VGA Adapter
- 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo
- Combo Drive
- 1GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
And since I’m a student, I get a student discount and I get a free iPod nano after rebate. New computer and MP3 player, yay! Now I just need to get a new backpack and possibly look into a wireless router. Hurray Canada!
