I have had encounters with spiders before: www.flickr.com/photos/jarledb/2766682560/ - but this time - although it “snook up on me”, I didn’t kill it. Its a fairly big spider too, seems to be having a good life eating the bugs in this house.
My computer @ the office. Just got the mStand for my Macbook Pro, pretty sweet stuff. Its in aluminium so it helps cool the laptop and keeps it nice and raised for use as a secondary screen when at the office.
