    "I like this place and willingly could waste my time in it" - (Hamlet. Act II, Scene IV). Macrumors?

    I wonder what he would be writing if her were still alive.

    I am sure he would have proven himself to be highly adaptive to modern times. Thus, I believe his words might have been, "New MacBooks next Tuesday, perchance?"

    "All that glisters is not gold." - The MBP rev A? The Merchant of Venice (II, vii)

    "Though this be madness, yet there is method in 't." Mad Jew? Hamlet (II, ii, 206)

    "Is this a Quad Two dual-core 2.5GHz PowerPC G5 processors 1.25GHz frontside bus per processor 1MB L2 cache per core 512MB of 533MHz DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-4200) 250GB Serial ATA hard drive 16x SuperDrive (double-layer) Three open PCI-Express expansion slots NVIDIA GeForce 6600 with 256MB GDDR SDRAM Mac which I see before me..." Macbeth (II, i, 33)

    "And thus I clothe my naked villany
    With odd old ends stol'n out of holy writ,
    And seem a saint, when most I play the devil." Erm ---- Mad Jew again??!! King Richard III (I, iii, 336-338)

    etc. etc. etc. :) :)

    I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
    Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
    Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
    Cry 'God for Apple, Cupertino, and Saint Steve!'

    What do you think? Too geeky? :D

    "But, soft! What light through yonder Window(s) breaks?
    It is the dark, and OS X is the sun." Romeo and Juliet (II, ii, 1-2)

    "That he's mad, 'tis true, 'tis true 'tis pity,
    And pity 'tis 'tis true." And ---- erm ---- Mad Jew again! Hamlet (II, ii, 97-98)

    "Et tu, Mr. Jobs" Julius Caesar (III, i, 77)

    Is this getting too silly now?

    Yeah, maybe the rain is hitting his head too hard or something. :p

    However, I am impressed that anyone can still quote Shakeaspeare like that.

    Isn't it thought that he perhaps died on his birthday?

    A rainy day indeed. We've had Shakespeare being gobbed out (your fault, dynamicv) and now you come out with a word like "animatronics" !!!!! (Crikey! Just looked it up here - thanks :) )Is all of this the result of global warming or something in the water?

    Oh nooooo!!!!! This is all doing my head in. And it's all YOUR (collective) fault. I've just been on the web and looked up Shakespeare AND Shatner. And, of course there is a link. Amusing if nothing else.

    It is a rainy, boring day here and I should go out and get a life. :)
