This morning I went to the coffee shop down the road for a heavily caffeinated beverage only to come home and discover a parcel on the kitchen table: My Toshiba 486 machine! The shipping was pretty fast considering I only ordered and paid for it yesterday!

I'm going to install PC DOS 2000, Windows 3.0a and all my retro games on one partition, and FreeBSD on the other for a uni project. Yeah!
