I'm using an ATI Radeon 3870 btw...Screenshot for those curious...

While I'm sleeping, my PC works on solving the problems with teleportation. Is that a better use for technology?

When I sleep my laptop dreams of what it would feel like to hack a mac book (running OS X of course). :| I swear this thing has a mind of its own!
