Damn it! I was just about to start unpacking my old P166-MMX laptop (with
80 MB of RAM!) to watch it shoot through the neighborhood. You just had to
go and ruin my evening, didn't you? Now I'll just have to contend myself
with Game of Thrones re-runs. :(

(Okay, so I didn't watch this week's episode yet, so my night isn't
completely ruined. But i still have nothing to run on that old laptop.)
