I Built a Table.

No, that wasn’t a euphemism (and I have no idea what it would be a euphemism for if it were one) and it’s not a 3D thing either: Not terribly long ago, I spent two days getting an old (think roundabout 2000) Toshiba laptop back running because I found that my desktop is a fair … More I Built a Table.

A BenQ, hence the name. … More Benny: A Eulogy
