Ellen loves a challenge.

0018-------------------------------------

(Thursday. INT: JH's room, EB is working on one of the laptops, JH is still arranging his worldly possessions)

EB: Where'd you get this mess, anyway?
JH: Yard sale, the whole thing cost me fifty bucks. The kernel is homemade, there's no documentation for anything, and it was only being sold because the guy who programmed it died.
---------------
EB: Ugh. Not only is this less powerful than the sum of its parts, it's less powerful than a single one of its parts.
JH: I'll tell you what - if you can get one working independantly, you can have the other two. I don't care if you install Windows 95. That's how much I hate this thing.
---------------
EB: Should be no problem, I've got a Ubuntu install sitting around some - what just happened?
---------------
JH: Oh, yeah, remember how I said the whole thing won't work unless they're all turned on? Going into hibernate mode counts. You have to jiggle all three mouse pointers every ten minutes.
EB: Oh, this is going to be fun. Go put on some of that coffee, Mama's going to work her magic.
