Starting the Day With A Healthy Dose of Time Travel

At long last, I had my desktop PC at work replaced. This is lucky because it was beginning to be slower than stoner sloth trying to grasp a mathematical word problem first thing in the morning.

Anyway, while this has solved 90% of the issues I have using my work computer, there still remains that 10%. This ranges from the temporary displacement of all my files, to the Korean language settings that can’t be changed, to the upgraded programs which mean that I need to visually relearn my way around how to use Powerpoint, Excel, and all those others as I did prior.

Then there comes the more trivial and amusing issue that my computer hasn’t been used in a long time. Since 12:01 February 10th, 2006, to be precise. This means that every morning when I turn it on, it still thinks it’s 2006.


In a really geeky kind of way though, I get an absurd amount of satisfaction from changing the time/date. Maybe it’s because it’s so early in the morning and I feel like I need to compensate for that fact with childish self-entertainment, but for a collection of seconds, I can pretend I’m time travelling as I bring the computer forward eight years, one month, and *ever changing number of* days.

For those twenty-odd seconds, I feel like Hiro Nakamura, breaking the space-time continuum for the first time.

And on that note, I am off to bed! Spent a lot of time going through candidates for the upcoming Quebec election. Twas not pretty.

    So…your PC at work is like…older than the one I am using! Wow.
    2006…a mental challenge to even remember what went on back then. Enjoy the fast forwarding of time…hopefully, many years from now, you will be able to go backwards as well.
