I am very regretful that this board has become so... dead. I've been very busy lately, my wife is ill an very irretable, I've been busy working, trying to hold onto my job. Since the biatch can't fo diddly, I am the only one to take care of her, and my daughter. (Thank god for my daughter, the only shining light in life right now). But I've still managed to drop into S2M every once in a wgile to see if anyone's been posting.
There are a few new posters, names I've never seen before. I welcome you. I hope you enjoy your Macs as much as I do. being that I have no time to chase down PC problems anymore, Mac has been wonderful in that I have not had any. I am still running Leopard, haven't bothered to switch to Snow Leopard. I just didn't see the point om spending the money on the new OS since everything is working so perfectly on the MacPro. I've been adding a lot of movies to my itunes library, (oh, and excuse the mispelling, I've developed a tatse for single malt scotch, since my wife decided I'm no longer allowed to do what I prefer...) I've rented a few movies from iTunes, and bought a few. I bought the entire "Resident Evil" series, great movies, and Mila Jovovich is a sweet babe. I rented "District 9" which was way cool, but I didn't really like the 'documentary' style to it. Also rented "V" last night, and thought it was good, but I expected more action and adventure from it.
I decided last thursday that I was slowing down a bit, and went to OtherWorld Computing to shop around for some extra memory for the MacPro. I took the jump and bought 8 gigs of RAM suited to this MacPro, 667Mhz, 2Gigs per stick, 4 sticks matched with my existing two gigs that were installed by MacMall when I bought the Mac. Now I have 10 gigs total, and things are running just so sweet. I'm hoping that I will find time to make some more animations and artwork, maybe get into some more editing of my home movies. (All depends on time.) But the 10 Gigs is nice, I mean really nice. The wife went bonkers when I told her it cost 300 bucks, but she doesn't realize just how cheap that is, considering I spent 600 bucks on 6 megs of RAM for 286 IBM in 1990. Things have changed a lot since then.
I've been coveting an AirPort Extreme since my neighbor figured out I was glomming onto their unsecured WiFi with my iPod Touch. I can no longer connect to the internet with it from the garage where I smore and drink my coffee in the mornings. If I get the WiFi router, I'm going to also get a white polycarbonite MacBook 13" to play with. I figure I better spend some of my money before the wicked witch of the west spends it all, or gets it in a divorce.
I'm also thinking of a second Apple Cinema Display, but seeing as I have a almost new GE flat panel sitting on the desk behind me unused, it's kinda unlikey. But the GE doesn't match!! I want all Apple.
You all used to be able to see my set up when Mike K. ran the board, but the new (not so new now), site owner killed all those old pages and links. I got a pretty nice setup.
I'm missing my old friends from here, James, Mordak, Mike, Stan, Dut, Jason (I still see Jason on Deviant Art), last, but certainly not least, Sam. Sam I hope you're still making movies. Email me with your youtube link, I want to see what you've been up to.
Well, my scotch has run dry, it's time to get a refill. Later.
