The odd title of this post comes from the novel Dune. Frank Herbert used it as a Fremen term for the delay between wanting something and trying to acquire it. The reason I used this is that I'm having to order more parts before I can start to put my new computer together.
Although my delay in obtaining a new computer is from an oversight, so it is only loosely self imposed. However, in general, I've wanted to upgrade my computer for quite some time, but I put it off until a catastrophic hard drive failure forced me to upgrade. I think my use of the term is justified, and I like Dune.
With any luck, I'll have a new PC up and running before the end of the week, but it's not going to be tonight.
