Well, that was convenient!
So anyway I tear open the box like an eight-year-old on Christmas morning and find a little green placard that reads:
"Be sure to charge your CLIÉ handheld before you use it for the first time. It takes about four hours to be fully charged for the first time."
What??? D'Oh! What a gyp!
So anyway, I've got half an hour or so before I can turn the thing on and start setting it up. Le sigh! So I killed time by watching the last episode of "Outlaw Star" on the first disk (wow, that catgirl's voice gets tiresome after a while -- does she remind anybody else of Leona?), finishing off Jedi Academy (which is simultaneously more fun and less addictive than Knights of the Old Republic, strangely enough), and trying to come up with some more sketches for AC and SJ.
Tick ... tock ... tick ... tock...
Guess I'll read the manual now; writing this entry has killed a good 15 minutes or so of wait time...
