Amusing Message from New Computer

The terminal in my new MacBook Pro just gave me this message upon using the sudo command to install MacPorts:

“We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:
#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.”

My response: I am the local System Administrator. I promise to be responsible. In fact, I have a problem with being too respectful and responsible. Thanks for thinking of me.

Short Lived, Well Loved
Long story. Will blog about it tomorrow, but the upswing is that my powerbook is cooked and so I had to buy a new computer today. Left it at the Genius Bar for them to attempt to transfer my recent data if the hard drive on the powerbook is still operational. Pick both up tomorrow.
