The Waste Land / History of the Trolls
« on: October 30, 2006, 08:12:06 pm »
Far to the North where the winter storms whip the weather-beaten coasts, you will find a long and narrow country. Here you see dark forests with moonlit lakes, deep fjords surrounded by mighty snowcapped mountains, and long rivers and cold streams cascading down the mountain sides.

Nowadays this country is covered by snow and ice only six months a year. A long, long time ago, however, there existed a massive glacier that brooded over the entire country for thousands of years.
As the climate gradually warmed and the glacier slowly retreated to the North, Man to the South of the glacier followed in its wake. Looking at this country and finding it to be magnificent, they considered themselves to be its first inhibitants. People settled there and named it Norway. They were themselves called "nordmenn" (Men of the North).

It did not trake them long, however, to realize that on this land there were various other creatures hiding out in the forests and mountain sides. People did not know what these creatures were, but they were generally believed to have supernatural powers, and they came to be known as trolls.

A lot better than wasting Diet Coke and Mentos. Fill a water bottle with 1/2 warm water, other half dry ice. Throw it in a crowd of people, and run.

Disclaimer: Don't actually do that.

Time again for geek topics.

AMD Athlon XP 3200+ which runs at 1100MHz because it crashes at any higher speed
1GB of DDR400 RAM, runs at half speed
Asus A7N8X-X Mobo
Maxtor 160GB Hard Drive
ATI Radeon 7000 64MB Video Card (My old FX5200 died)
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! Sound Card
Sony 52x32x52 CD-RW
380 watt PSU
Ubuntu Linux 6.06 Dapper Drake
Sony 21" Monitor refurbished by Dell which has potential to break right through my desk

I'm going to buy a new computer later this year, complete with SLI, Intel Core Duo, DDR2-Googol, and possibly the LCD monitor craze that I'm being forced to give into.
