Pimpin' Ain't Easy (But It's Gotta be Done)

...And now comes the hard part... what Ace calls "the shaking of the cyber cup."

While I'd love not to do it, this little slice of the blogosphere has to be cobbled together somewhere, and for the past year, that has occurred on a battle-weary Dell Dimension L733R, circa 2001, which has seen far better days. My wife and I, and our increasingly computer-savvy daughter, all jockey for time on this single and rapidly-aging desktop PC.

Yes, shamefully, I don't have a full-loaded WiFi-enabled laptop with 22' chrome rims. I'm an embarassment to pajama pundits everywhere.

So please consider this:

Over to the right are a Paypal donation buttons for this site.

If each of you frequent readers could see your way click over and donate a couple of bucks or three, it would go a long way towards getting a dedicated Confederate Yankified computer (sorry, no General Lee-type paint scheme, unless you guys go really nuts), which will give me more time to research and write quality posts to keep you entertained.

Is that a good "bang for your buck," or what?

Only if you get a computer manufactured (or at least assembled) in the CSA.

Funny you should mention that, because both of the companies I'm looking at (Dell and IBM) have manufacturing plants located in the heart of North Carolina. IBM/Lenovo Thinkpads are built right here in Wake County, and Dell just broke ground on a manufacturing facility in Greenboro.

Dude, I'm getting a Tarheel.
