My friend Nick decided to buy a refurbished dual-quad Mac Pro, which arrived this morning. I expected him to immediately open it up to admire it and to make sure it worked after being shipped.
He said “No, I have work to do, so it will have to wait”. Then he said “It probably be a couple of days until I open it up, since I am busy tonight”. I was very impressed by his apparent willpower.
But alas, the willpower only lasted about five minutes, as I looked over my shoulder and saw Nick opening up the box less than five minutes later…
So far, he has not plugged it in, since he “has to go to the gym” first. We will see how it takes for the first power on.
