I almost got my Unicomp SpaceSaver! Blast!

Hardware

D'oh!

What's worse than waiting for a parcel to arrive in the mail? Not being able to hastily take a sharp picture with your non-3GS iTelephone because there's insufficient light and it doesn't have proper focusing! Wait, let me try that again.

What's worse than waiting for a parcel to arrive in the mail? Having it arrive when you're not home! Somewhere out there in the warehouse districts of Singapore is a custom Unicomp SpaceSaver

ASIDE: As I type this at this Starbucks in Singapore that’s still hecticly busy at 21:34, a women just walked past dressed as Shana from Shakugan no Shana. Wha…?

Sorry I was distracted. Somewhere out there in the warehouse districts of Singapore is a custom Unicomp SpaceSaver bucking spring IBM Model M replica keyboard with my name on it! Well not literally; Unicomp is a great business that produces quality products, but as far as I know they don't go as far as etching your name on the devices you order.

Perhaps they should. Then if someone was walking out of our apartment wearing a balaclava and had a custom Unicomp SpaceSaver bucking spring IBM Model M replica keyboard under his arm I could quickly ascertain whether the keyboard was mine or whether he takes his own custom Unicomp SpaceSaver bucking spring IBM Model M replica keyboard with him when he robs apartment buildings in Singapore.

I think I've had too much [coffee] to drink.

Did I mention I came very close today to getting a custom Unicomp SpaceSaver bucking spring IBM Model M replica keyboard?
