My darling daughter ("Squid") is doing some academic course in Dundee, to which we have accomodated her in some palatial student accomodation. To wit, she has Broadband, a Phone, A double bed, en-suite bathroom, plasma TV, Two fridges, a freezer, a dishwasher (for fricks sake!), a microwave and an oven. To which last night, she added a MacBook. Not a pro - even I, at the peak of my consulting prowess could afford to squander my meagre salary on that. However, its a 2gb memory macbook (Black), various bits of software, and of course a decent 500mb external firewire hard drive. So. Basically.
My daughter has more comfort and computing power than I managed to amass before I was 30. And she hit 18 this year. Question: Do we spoil our children?
Answer. Yes. Of course,. she has me to put up with.
Sigh. I purchase my first Mac, and its not for me. However, she did get the same buzz as I did, licking screens last week. In other words, a very very happy Squid. And what are parents for?
Why "Squid"? Never seen "Men In Black?"
Och. Even to my stone cold heart, it brought a tear to my glass eye, seeing someone enjoy something so much. We *could* have done without the text at 5am this morning asking for support, however..
