It was my birthday today. L took me to breakfast at The Flying Emu, then I put in my normal working day. In the evening we went to Mescalero, where I enjoyed their paella and wine. I got some great presents, too, including a copy of The Annotated Alice. It was a pleasant, relaxed day.

My new computer gear arrived today, too. I haven't had a chance to assemble it yet, but did unpack it to verify that everything was there. That Shuttle XPC is a very cool-looking little unit.
