Today I went out to ambush a delivery guy who was gonna take my package to the wrong address, aka my actual address where I'm not staying right now. It was a bar of RAM for my beautiful machine. Ended up waiting almost 2 hours outside in the sun, reading to pass the time.
When I finally got back home, I started unhooking my PC to perform surgery. I ended up taking the entire thing apart. I cleaned it as best I could. Every single piece. I reconnected everything, sorted cables, dumped some redundant stuff. Thanked the components for their years of service. A full-blown rebirth while looping Making of a Cyborg in the background.
Taking Her apart, performing the necessary cleaning rituals, and reassembling Her in the Omnissiah's image, made me feel utterly relaxed. It was pure tranquility. This is the closest I will ever get to true meditation, I believe. It felt good.
Nevermind that I am tired as fuck today. No matter the stress. But for 3 hours today, I managed to put aside everything and focus on the beauty of the machine. Praise be to the Omnissiah.
