John Scalzi in By the Way asks us to choose: If we could have only one, car OR computer, which would it be?
In my case the choice is easy. My car sits mostly, but my computer is in use eighteen hours a day... and sometimes in the middle of the night.
My current computer My current car
For extra credit he asks which cost more: your first car or your most recent computer. I laughed. they cost the same. $800. But $800 was harder to come by in 1943 than is was in 2005
