Okay, honestly now, I've explained this part before. :)

Nobody can MAKE a laptop out of bits. It was a salvaged PC desktop, with the crappiest monitor known to mankind ("Cat, why is there a silhouette of you burned into the wall behind you?") which I ran SL on --slowly-- and my not-salvaged, duh-sure-we-will-grant-you-a-really-high-credit-limit-Catherine iBook that I had purchased prior to my financial crisis, which served as wifi gateway.

Congrats Cat! =^_^=

I like how historical this story is: I first met Cat in the Welcome Area, back when it was the Ahern-Morris "classic model". Much has happened since then, but I'll never forget Cat's kindness, nor her insights into what makes us who we are. And oh yeah, watching Royksopp's "Remind Me" about the interconnectiveness of the world was kewl too.

Nice to know we have our own apocryphal tales of legendosity, too. ;)

Ack, Cat, I can't believe I got so sloppy there; will update.

Catherine Omega

Aww, thanks guys.

You know, that was a pretty significant event in the Catherineverse too, Torley. It's nice to find something so significantly in common with a near-stranger, because they quickly become so much more when you do. ;)


First off I want to say it's ABOUT TIME someone hired this woman for her amazing talents.
Catherine I wish you all the best in your new position and I have no doubt you'll blow everyone away :).

Rob Cottingham

Hamlet, we can't thank you enough for introducing us to Catherine. Over and above her just being really wicked smart, working with her has been a delight. And I think we're going to do some great things together.
