New Job

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve posted, so here’s a run down of what I’ve been up too. My oldest son is on a T-Ball team and I’m an assistant coach. We’re both having a good time with it, baseball is one of my life-long passions and I’m glad my son enjoys it as much as I do.

I got a new job at MPC Computers in Nampa as a Programmer Annalyst. Having a good time and enjoying the benefits that come with not being a temp worker. Along with the new job came more income and as a reward for my efforts, I have been allowed to purchase a laptop.

… I’m waiting for Apple to release the new MacBooks. Let you know more after I see what they have to offer. I’ve never owned a Mac before, but they do make the sexiest notebooks and now that OSX is on Intel, I can duel boot into Ubuntu. Good times ahead.

Plus, OSX comes with Ruby built in. :P

  1. Thanks Mike. I’m looking seriously at the MacBook white 1.63 Mhz with 1GB RAM and 80GB HD. It looks like it’s standing up well against the MacBook Pro in everything except gameing – which I never do anyway, so sounds like it will be a great bargain.

    On your suggestion, I did download Parallels to my work XP box and loaded Ubuntu on it. Works fine, I like it alot. I will probably use it to test Linux on the Mac, but I’m too far gone to the Open Source side to not duel boot. Mac is the best closed source software solution, but nothing gets me happier than Linux. So I will be running the best free OS on the best hardware for laptops. At least part of the time. :)

    I am looking forward to learning OSX Aqua. I recently got the Missing Manual for making the switch to Mac from Windows, so will soon learn my way around.
