SC had a new baby.
He "adopted" (I used " " as he spent about HK$5,000 to bring this "baby" home :S) his new baby last Friday, brought it home, fiddled with it the whole night, which means I had no access to our laptop, but it means that the TV was free from Xbox and I had it all to myself.
He frowned in front of the laptop for hours, keeping an eye on "the baby" from time to time, somehow failed to make it work, called the shop, send messages to service centers, etc...and somehow, he couldn't make it work.
Just like worrying for a sick child, he couldn't sleep the whole night. Waking up every two hours to check on "the baby", showering it with lots of love.
What in the name of heck is this "baby"?
Knowing SC, a true techie & gamer freak, is it...a new game console? mobile phone? new app?
Nope. It's a NAS, a Network Attached Storage....in the form of this little white box, near which I should NOT place my drinks, or my stinky feet.
What the heck is a Network Attached Storage?
All I know:
- The technology is nothing new
- It gives us a whole lotta storage space, which I can access via web (I wish it's a shoe storage space)
- It lets SC do things without interfering or slowing down the internet connection of my laptop
- Loads of other good things I couldn't comprehend, but it surely doesn't clean the 1000001 strands of my hair on the floor nor does the laundry, hence not really amazing for me :D
After a sleepless night and a day of more fiddling and worrying about "the baby", arguing with unhelpful technical support, hurrying home after a rushed lunch to check on "the baby", etc... Finally, SC found the problem, solved it, and made it work! Oh, yeah!
Look at the proud papa!
He continued to play with it until the sun went down...and finally, he was ready to make the perfect space for his new baby to sleep (or work?).
Paisley boxers, a pink belt, dirty feet and all...
He's gonna be a good father.
Thanks for taking a good care of me, SC.
Sorry for being a major bitch these days...
...and I am only going to be a bigger bitch until lil' SC arrives.
