The Null Device

I had an unusual dream last night: I was in a video arcade or some establishment with video-game machines. There was a Galaga machine there, only the screen kept showing an error message, something about not being able to read ~. The proprietor of the shop said it was broken, but I suggested that he pull the hard disk out, plug it into a PC running Linux, mount it and fix the filesystem there. (Later I realised that that would have involved finding a PC with an old hard disk controller...)

Dreams about Galaga are very important. Almost as important as dreams about Donkey Kong or Ten Yard Fight.

Though not as common as dreams about Tetris, or hypnagogic Tetris hallucinations.

Once, whilst lying half-asleep in bed, I kept imagining Sokoban block-moving problems mentally superimposed with real-life social situations. Not sure how one mapped to the other, but I *knew* that it did.
