Well, _something_ has to keep that little time/day/date display up to snuff even when your Mac's turned off.

I assumed the hamsters we had hooked up were managing this trick. Now we'll have to off-shore them to an island, where they'll be taken for walks by locals who are in need of fitness.

(The reference is to a squib in the Oregonian this week. Apparently when horses get too old to be ridden they are not merely turned out to pasture; people in need of exercise volunteer to go for walks with them. I have a call in to the Oregon zoo, wondering if I can volunteer to walk say, old tigers, or elephants.)
