Slow Blogging

So my laptop hard drive died three weeks ago. When I got it back, it had a short in it that it did not previously have. I needed it desperately and could not take it to be repaired further. Last week, I took it back in for repair on a Tuesday and I still have not gotten it back.

I am desperate for my precious. Until then, however, blogging will continue to be uneven.

    Last week, I just dropped my laptop on the NIC card, and it soved it up into the PCMIA slot and broke my mother board. So I feel your pain.

    Sadly, all new laptops come with Vista, and its 2 GB recommended RAM, so I think I may just buy an Intel based Mac, and install XP and dual boot it.

    Doug–by all means–get a Mac, but do not install any form of Windows!

    Why buy a far superior machine only to weigh it down with an inferior (and vulnerable) operating system?

    So get a Mac, but run OSX. You’ll be glad you did.

    If you must run windows, let me suggest Parallels. It allows you to run a virtual machine under OSX (Intel only) and you can install XP or Linux. I use it because I haven’t dropped the $1k it would cost to convert my Dreamweaver license.

    Well, that would be foolish of me, as I am a Windows developer. I suppose I could grow long hair and star smoking pot and become a 100% Mac user.

    Windows developer? Oh, you’re one of those guys in the white shirt/black tie at Best Buy. Those VW Bugs are sweet.
