Hacking at a café

I feel like putting on nice clothes that make me look cool and hip, and go to a café with a terrasse that's in the shadow of some trees, overlooking a square, preferably somewhere in Europe, with a small PowerBook and a big pair of headphones, listening to music and hacking while sipping a bowl of latté.

Instead, I will be cleaning my Pointe-St-Charles apartment in my underwear...

Wow. That's a completely different image than what I normally think of you. Planning on a severe lifestyle change?

I'm often just in my underwear, it's not really a lifestyle change!

If you're referring to "cool and hip", I don't really feel it being such a far departure, but there are a few details. I don't feel like that all the time, of course, and my idea of "cool and hip" might slightly differ than yours (or most people).

What I'm missing is the riches for getting the hip Powerbook laptop to go with how I feel. ;-)

Why a PowerBook ? There are plenty of good PC laptop that will run Linux as well or better... including Wifi.

Or have you just become a snob ?

When you're sipping latté at a fancy café and you mostly busy being hip, technical details like that are not what's important. And those PC laptops just won't do. And I'd run Mac OS X, because it looks so much cooler than my usual Linux desktops...

I've actually always been a bit of a snob, you know?

Saw this the other day and was reminded by your "now playing": Einstürzende Neueküchen, the world's premier "virtual cookbook of recipes contributed by the worldwide society of supporters and fans of Einstürzende Neubauten."
