I went go-karting yesterday and bought a laptop today.

Yesterday my fencing coach, Dale, organized a go-karting party. We went to this go-karting place called "Kart2Kart" in Sterling Heights (Michigan, USA). I'd never been go-karting before, but it was a helluva lot of fun. It took me the first round to get an idea of how tight I could take the corners and so on. Those little things are so low to the ground that you can do crazy stuff on them. It's too bad that it's so expensive—it cost me $36 for a total of 16 minutes between the two rounds.

Today, I bought a laptop. It's a Compaq Armada M700, about 6 months old. This is the first laptop I've owned. It seems really nice, Linux supports all of its features, even the built-in modem and Ethernet ports. I'm currently installing Debian on it.
