What an unexpected surprise!
I heard a useful quote the other day that agrees with my distaste of the exclamation mark. It was something to the effect of “you only get two exclamation marks to use in your entire life, so be sure to use them wisely.” I guess I have one left.
Anyway, the surprise in question was the free and (gasp) unsecured wireless network inhabiting the entire hotel in which I’m currently writing. It’s quite convenient, actually. Now all I have to figure out is how to remove all the spyware with which my impending installation of Kazaa will fill my the Purple Wave’s laptop.
