: Thanks for the stickers!
Yo, Boston! I'm doing an appearance tonight at Harvard Books, and as luck would have it, I spilled a cup of coffee on my laptop this morning and killed it. Luckily, the twitters leapt into action and let me know that the Micro Center in Cambridge was well-equipped (and by the way, holy smokes, why the hell didn't anyone tell me how smoking awesome Micro Center is? Like Fry's where all the staff are amazingly smart and helpful, boo-yah!).
So now I've got a brand-spanking new ThinkPad X230 with my old hard-drive in it (for the record, turns out you can yank an Ubuntu 12.10 drive out of a ThinkPad X220 and put it in an X230 and it Just Works). There's only one thing it lacks: STICKERS.
I have been a laptop stickerer for a decade and more, but my precious supply of stickers is all the way in London and I have four more cities to go on the tour before I'll get back to them.
Which is where you come in. If you're coming to the event in Cambridge tonight, bring me your small stickers and I'll decorate the machine with 'em on my way to New Mexico and post a photo tomorrow. But I emphasize: small stickers -- otherwise you just don't get enough of 'em on the machine.
See you tonight!
