In other news, my Macbook Pro goes back for service. It turns out my graphical artifacts under Windows XP are probably a hardware edge case due to the rough-and-tumble ATI drivers for Windows as opposed to the exceptionally conservative oh-god-if-this-thing-lights-on-fire-the-oversensitive-starving-artist-Photoshop-users-are-going-to-make-a-documentary-about-it driver for OS X, and so they're going to replace the entire motherboard, and the inverter while they're at it since a new revision of both is available.
So I'll be without Intel Mac goodness for a couple of days. [crying]
But luckily I just found a copy of Freelancer at a discount shop on my lunch break. So I'll be playing that! Keer! Keer! FSHOOOOOOOOM
