How do you respond when the interviewer misses your phone interview?

I had a phone interview for an entry level position at a small tech startup, but the interviewer is about forty minutes late with no signs of appearing. How do I respond?

Updating OS on a New Mac...While Keeping it Virginally New

I'm donating a Mac laptop, and it's loaded with 10.6.0.

[NOTE: you may believe that's a silly thing to desire. Your disdain has been pre-registered, but I stupidly persist in hoping for this result].
