The Other Creepy
Ben Hall

My employer was selling off surplus computer inventory, so I got an old 1.25GHz G4 Mac Mini for cheap. I bought a 17″ monitor for it at FreeGeek ($15!) and set it up in Ben’s room.

No “restricted Finder” or any of that: I just cleared the dock of everything but KidPix, an educational game that involves some sort of burrowing rodents who speak with Canadian accents, chess and TextEdit. There’s no network connection for it (for now, anyhow, since this isn’t one of the minis with built-in Wi-Fi), but that’s o.k.

That’s a white door dripping with brown slime with a rainbow doorknob in the side of a black house dripping with green slime, by the way.

    Ben might like to look at Rudy Rucker’s paintings, if I’m any judge of his relationship with the software and the aesthetics on display.
