all encoding all the time

My PowerBook is currently chewing through 40 gigs of video, encoding and turning it into something that will one day be a DVD. The fan is spinning very fast, the keyboard is flipped open and it’s propped up on magazines to encourage the cool autumn air of Zürich to circulate through, and there is no spare processing power to do stuff like connect to the internet. In the meantime, it’s Cornelia’s birthday today, (All Cornelia! All the time!!!), and Christa de Carouge’s fashion show tomorrow. Back when I have the CPUs.
