We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

I was thinking about the word "cavalier" earlier today, and how it's clearly related to French "chevalier" and Spanish "caballero", and those are from "cheval" and "caballo" respectively, but then I got stuck. They're Romance languages, but the Latin for "horse" is "equus", isn't it?

Turns out Latin borrowed "caballus", meaning "draft horse, workhorse" from an unknown language, but it was originally only poetic; it doesn't appear in prose until Vulgar Latin, where it replaced "equus".

Huh.

wondering if anyone still makes PowerPC hardware anymore that's not IBM. it seems like they simply took their ball and went home after Apple stopped buying
