Authorization Replacement for big brain's replacement came down from high command- have to finalize on friday, but it looks like I'm getting an upgrade.
I'd have been satisfied with a $500 graphics card, but if they would rather give me a $3000 computer due to red tape, that's fine
Of course, if they give me a cash option, I'll build my own elsewhere.

Very superstitious, nothin’ more to say,
Very superstitious, the devil’s on his way,
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin’ glass,
Seven years of bad luck, good things in your past
When you believe in things that you don’t understand,
Then you suffer,
Superstition ain’t the way, no, no, no
