The iMac's lower 512mb arrived today and works perfectly, so I now have a 1gb 700mhz gem of 2003-ish computer design. Not sure where it's going to end up - probably my bedroom if I can summon up the energy to run the network cable, but probably not until after the Worldcon. Since I have guests on Saturday and need to clear up its immediate destination is a corner of my sitting room behind one of the armchairs.
By sheer chance the steam engine fuel also arrived today and I gave that a trial run. Works, but I think next time will have to be outdoors, the smell of the fuel burning is a little overpowering.
Next thing to do tonight - clean out the snake tank. Ah, the joys of pet ownership...
